Project 365 2010: Week 15

April 9, 2010: In an act of utter insanity, I took the kids to the zoo on the last day of spring break. It was a total mad house! I lost Wyatt 2 times in the first 15 minutes we were there and the day just went downhill from there. We did get to see the giraffes though, which Wyatt really loved. And we learned that elephants only have 4 teeth.

April 10, 2010: Augie snuggled into his crib with his lovey — an old phone.

April 11, 2010: Poor little Augie-bear had a really bad day. He bonked his eye on a toy, scratched his face and then later in the day he spiked a fever of 104 degrees from a case of roseola. Zach and I were up late rocking him and giving him Tylenol, ibuprofen and sponge baths in an effort to get his fever below 103 degrees. Zach finally managed to put him down in his bed and keep him asleep around 1 am.

April 12, 2010: The boys cracked open Wyatt’s lunch box in the middle of the kitchen floor when we got home from school pick-up and ate the rest of his lunch.

April 13, 2010: Augie is my little helper. He loves to sweep the floor, wipe down kitchen cabinets with a sponge and run the vacuum. Of course, I have no delusions that this helpfulness will last, but wouldn’t that be nice?

April 14, 2010: Augie took a trip to the doctor where he was finally diagnosed with roseola (after a rough few days of crying that later bloomed into a truly stunning rash). I kept him home from day care for the rest of the day and as a special sick toddler treat I let him play with the salad spinner.

105

April 15, 2010: Duck salad from the Berkeley Bowl Cafe. The top of my salad was fantastic, but as I ate my way down to the bottom it started becoming apparent that it was ridiculously over-dressed. In the end I discovered a half inch of salad dressing in the bottom of the bowl. Yuck.

    The close-up picture of Augie is a Wendy reincarnation! Luv, luv, luv it!! I'm so sorry for your trip to the zoo. It was always a fun place for us but a bad day is a bad day. When we were in Ca with the kids we went to Disney Land during spring break! We were in such long lines that we talked about sending Christmas cards to the people who were around us. One woman was a nurse and diagnosed Zack's rash as poison oak instead of impetigo. These are good memories!!! Love you.

    Nice pics ! Oh, and seeing the picture of the giraffe makes me think of a very cool and fun project i read about in the newspaper. I don't know if you have heard about it before, it's called onemilliongiraffes. Basically it's a guy from Norway who challenged his friend to collect one million giraffes in one year ! Crazy huh ! :p People from all around the world have created, drawn, painted, built,…giraffes. So far he still has to collect 167 131 giraffes. I made one too 🙂 Maybe a fun project to do with your kids ? 🙂 Spread the word !
    Oh, the site is http://www.onemilliongiraffes.com. I think it's really cool to see so many people from so many different countries making something creative.

  • Augie has such amazing eyes! Yowza, he gorgeous!

    I love that they were eating the lunch leftovers on the kitchen floor. LOL

    I have had that same salad spinner in my Amazon cart for awhile. I think I could get it cheaper at BB&B with a coupon, but they don't have the green one, just white. I think the green is worth an extra couple bucks. :p
    Also, so super jealous of your pull-out shelves! We had those in our condo in CA and they were SO NICE. I have horrible cabinets in our house here, it's a serious thorn in my side when I'm in the kitchen.

    My 21-month-old is my little helper too. He LOVES sweeping/mopping the floors, throwing out the trash, fixing the bed sheets, putting clothes in the laundry bin, and so forth. I always say that I have to take what little advantage I can of it now before he outgrows this. Yet when it comes to putting his toys away, he won't take part of it. And roseola is the worst. 🙁
