I had to break my no-liquor-midweek rule tonight because I was home with 3 kids (Harry has had a fever since Sunday) all day. Well, all day after preschool. And dayum. WHAT A DAY. I was wearing the "clothes" I SLEPT IN (which I wore to elementary school to pick up homework, preschool drop off and pick up, and the grocery store until 5:30 when I lured the kids into semi submission with dinner and took a shower and put on clean pajamas.
We are going to take Harry to the pediatrician tomorrow, and he sees his cardiologist for a follow-up on Friday, so I ma not too worried about him, but I wish his fever would go away. He feels fine with Tylenol or Ibuprofen, but when it wears off, he has a tummy ache and a fever of 101-103. He threw up Sunday and Monday, but Tuesday and today he just laid around feeling crappy. I finally picked up school work for him this morning, and he spent the afternoon researching the Black Hawk War and starting his Wisconsin history research paper, taking a 4-page second-quarter math assessment that I have to run over to school tomorrow, writing in his reading log, and blowing through his weekly vocab and reading comprehension packets. If he doesn't go to school tomorrow, he'll be done with both homework and school work before noon. Plus he has almost solved Zelda on the Wii U. So, it's been a productive week.
Oh! And he learned to vacuum. Instead of reminding Ben to vacuum the basement every Tuesday and Thursday, I have decided to pay Harry $1 extra allowance a week to do it.
