Even though our new little 3 year old was a sick, snotty, juicy, miserable mess yesterday (and there’s no exaggeration here!), we tried to do a few things to celebrate with him. We debated for far too long about where to go, thinking to spend the morning at a museum or something, before we realized the child was in no condition to go out for hours!
We ended up taking him out to brunch for a little bit. He perked up after a dose of tylenol and a little food. He is in such a contradictory stage these days. He said he wanted pancakes, then asked for oatmeal (“are you sure you want the oatmeal? “Yes!”) and when the oatmeal was placed in front of him, got all teary and asked where his pancakes were! Sigh. He ate 1/3 of my omelet and some fruit:) Then we came home for a nice long nap.
Poor little man with pink eye and nasty croup virus. This was one of about 3 smiles yesterday!
His favorite gift so far! A guitar from mommy and daddy:)
And his requested chocolate cake! Using the m&m’s from the failed potty training bribery attempt:)
It was a very dense, rich chocolatey cake!
The belly full of chocolate:)
