Harry came to work with me today, and we had SO MUCH FUN. Right now I am writing this really quick before we hit the library and the grocery store while he plays Minecraft on my phone. He also brought his MacBook Air, and we worked side-by-side on our matching computers with my office door closed and Alabama Shakes playing just loud enough to probably annoy the shit out of the theater department people across the hall. We took a long lunch and went to the bookstore because Harry **needed** a new hat. We lunched at Potbelly where Harry had his first ever Dr. Pepper (#moty), and then we walked to the capitol and went out on the (beautiful) observation deck after watching police break up a bunch of old people protesting our asshat governor with songs. It's been lovely.
Cooper is sick with whatever the hell Dorothy had. And he likely ALSO has an ear infection which is a really weird coincidence because those are not catching, right? Ben is taking him to the pediatrician while we speak (type).
Dorothy HATES to take her amoxicillin. HATES it. She was screaming and crying and spitting it everywhere until I realized that she just wanted to stand on the ground on her own 2 feet (NOT sit on the counter) and administer the medicine herself by squirting it into her mouth with a syringe. Then, she needs to eat a fun size Milky Way bar and nurse a little. SIMPLE ENOUGH.
Instead of going to the pool yesterday, we decided to keep it fresh with a front-yard water fight. because nothing could be grosser than a sprinkler and a slip-n-slide into some backyard dog poop, am I right?
