I woke up this morning, looked at the schedule and made a mental note that it was an ordinary day. Most days are and I’m okay with that. This is how many of our days play out…
But the day shaped up to be anything but ordinary.
I went to the dentist and evidently I have a serious sleep grinding problem and need to invest in a $500 mouth guard. Lame.
We’ve been introducing solids to Cannon slowly. We introduced peas today – he had a nice allergic reaction to them with hives covering his face and before the day was done he had a nice fever. Good thing we see the doctor for his six month check-up tomorrow.
We have a bad fruit fly problem that I’m constantly fighting – I finally filled the sink with pinesol/water to hopefully kill anything they may be attracted to in the drain.
Bennett was thirsty during dinner and got up to get his own water. Hunter freaked out when he saw Bennett using his cup and quickly confiscated the cup and drank all the water. He stopped with a small amount left saying the water didn’t taste good. I knew that Bennett had just filled it up so it wasn’t old water. I quickly took the cup and smelled the stench of pine-sol in the cup, Bennett simply filled it with the water sitting in the sink killing the fruit flies. For the record – poison control recommends drinking a lot of water as well as eating salty foods when something like this is consumed.
Bennett struggled the majority of the evening and was sent to his room early to go to bed. He was beside himself and was going to make it known. After several minutes, Steve went back to his room to calm him down only to find he had split his chin and cut up his mouth pretty good in throwing his monstrous fit.
It was a pretty good gouge on the chin which led us to walking to our neighbors for a quick consultation. It was bad enough we couldn’t leave it as is – but stitches wasn’t a good option because of the location and his little squirmy body.
So, sitting on the neighbors couch we got him glued up way past his bedtime and then rewarded him with a purple popsicle.
The day shaped up to be anything but ordinary. I’ll take ordinary (i.e. considered boring days for many people) any day of the week.
