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.
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.
