News at Home: Special Visitor!
The highlight of my week this week was a visit on Friday from Brandee! Her mother-in-law lives about 10 minutes from me, so when they come in town to see her, Brandee and I make a point of getting together. We had planned for me to get off work early, hit a happy hour, and then get Dante from daycare so she could meet him. Well, if there’s anything I’ve learned since becoming a mom is that babies constantly change your plans! And he did.
So on Thursday my husband got a call (because I missed it on my phone – I was in a meeting) from daycare that Dante had a fever and we had to pick him up. Well when Kiko got there they said he had a fever of 100.3. Which, I’ve learned is a very low fever in infant world. But daycare considers anything over 100.2 a sign of contagious illness and you have to below 100.2 for 24 hours before baby can come back. Meaning, they not just sent him home early, but we couldn’t bring him to daycare on Friday. This would have been just fine if Dante were actually sick. But my husband immediately took his temperature when they got home (5 minutes from daycare) and it was 97.0. And he didn’t seem warm or sick to him when he got to the daycare either. He played and napped like normal the rest of the afternoon.
Because I knew I wasn’t going to be able to work on Friday, I stayed at work a little late. But when I got home around 7, I found a perfect baby. He had a temperature of 97.2 and was happy as could be. So I’m a little bit pissed at his daycare. It worked out this time, but I’m wondering if it would be so bad to say I need you to SHOW me that he has a fever in the future because I don’t know that I believe them. Although, after talking to Michelle I’ve learned that a baby that needs to poop can also have a fever. Well guess what happened between the time they took his temperature and my husband picked him up? He pooped. But what are we supposed to do about poop fevers?!?! We can’t afford to be called a missing work every time he needs to poop!
This week it worked out to my advantage because I got to spend a lot more time with Brandee than I would have. I got in about 4 hours of work from home, thanks to Dante napping great and playing on his own beautifully. And Brandee and I visited for about 4 hours too, I think! She got to meet Dante and hold and play with him — and he took a 2 hour nap, meaning we had some great uninterrupted chat time. And she gave Dante a great gift, including some books of course! One of which he already loves 🙂 Some highlights from our time together:
I think I did pretty good with blogging last week. I wrote some posts and did some visiting. Not up to 100% connections as I would like to be, but better.
COYER continues to go great! I’ve read 25 COYER reads, 6 of them buddy reads. I’m participating in the final readathon, reading at least 1 recommended read.
I’ve also been making progress on my 2020HW and have read my 1 book for the month (plus some).
