The Joy of Viruses

Hola to everyone, I'm feeling a bit isolated holed up with my sick toddler. But I'm just so grateful his fever is getting more under control. Granted, I can't completely get rid of it, but I'm psyched it's down to 100.1. As parents everywhere gasp, compare this to the 104.7 we had yesterday. AAGH! Dr. checked him out, no infections, just a virus he thinks. I'd much prefer the fever to go away. Running nose and cough I can deal with, fevers drive me nuts.

And, of course, I've contracted his germs. But I will not let that stop me from enjoying tomorrow. WE HAVE A BABYSITTER PEOPLE!!! Yes, that's right. I real live babysitter. And I don't care if I have to crawl out of the house, I'm enjoying my damn date night. Well, minus drinking. That's out until July, or uh, later.

Woot, my munchkin is feeling better. I've been working on this post all day. Hahaha. He's still got a little bit of a fever, but it's not running out of control at the end of the four hour medicine cycle.

So, I'm wondering if toddlers can overdose on crackers and goldfish? Cause that's all my critter wants to eat this week. I suppose that's better than nothing, all things considered. I had a brief proud parent moment when my critter took a liking to celery last week. But, like all new foods, that didn't last. A few days later he was using the celery as a writing utensil, no longer fit for consumption. He even ate raw broccoli one day and liked it! This from my food connoisseur who spits out cake and even cheese. ?? This is not my kid, I swear. He may have escaped from my womb, but obviously picked up none of his food tastes from me.

Well, I'm gonna end this ramble by saying...YAY IT'S FRIDAY!!

P.S. Grandparents are evil. Mark's mom sent this seemingly cute valentine's day lion that sings "The Lion Sleeps Tonight". It has an on/off switch which took all of two seconds for Hayden to find. Now I'm being tortured by the first line of this song over and over..."in the jungle"..."in the jungle"...Hayden never lets it get any farther than that. To top it all off the damn batteries are running out, which gives it a nice creepy slow-mo sound. ARGH!!
