Week in the Life: Friday

Our week continued to be about flexibility, which is key when you have two working parents and a two year old.
Alex was extra tired in the morning and harder to wake up than usual. We all carpooled to work/daycare in the morning since John was still getting over an eye infection. Light sensitivity and the summer, South Texas sun are a rough combination.

My cell phone was going off (just vibrating) in a morning meeting, which usually is not a good sign. Alex needed to be picked up from daycare. John made him an appointment at the pediatrician, and I picked him up from daycare. He was his usually happy self, but he had a suspicious red bump in his face. The pediatrician confirmed that it was a mild case of Impetigo and prescribed an ointment. There was a notice on Alex's classroom door about a case of Impetigo in the center, so the teachers were watching for it. For the first year of daycare, Alex did get sick regularly, but it has really decreased since then.

We dropped off Alex's prescription and ate lunch at Alex's favorite restaurant, Subway, while it was being filled. One of the staff members there recognizes us now, but he was not working on Friday.

We made it back home in time for naps for both Alex and Mommy.

Alex's teacher sent home some of his recent artwork:

Since I had taken the car, my mom was able to bring John home from work. Their buildings are pretty close on campus. We had tacos for dinner before John left for his softball game.
Alex watched some Elmo before bed. We limit his screen time and use some DVDs, Netflix and other shows online. Alex has wanted his jaguar this week, but sometimes he calls it a tiger or lion.
After Alex went to bed, I had some crafty time and made two cards. Friday did not go as planned, but it was still a good day.
