I think things are on the upswing around here. At least I hope so.
Caedmon is feeling much better, and hopefully some tests we ran at the doctor’s office on Monday will give us some answers for this mystery illness.
Caedmon had to have blood drawn, which he’d never done before. He did fabulously; Didn’t even flinch. Later, he kept asking me why that nurse had to poke his arm. But his real concern was with the gauze pressure bandage she put on his arm. He wanted that thing gone immediately. I guess it’s good that he was more worried about that than having blood drained from his body.
Honor learned a few new tricks yesterday. She learned how to “play” her first instrument – a toy recorder. Yeah. The bane of every parent’s existence. And who was the genius who bought it for Caedmon a few years ago? That would be me. I know. I brought it upon myself. But it’s a rite of passage. I shouldn’t deny my kids the joy of tooting a recorder and squash their musical curiosity just because it causes me to lose brain cells. Right?
After an extra day off school, Caedmon has not been excited to get back in the groove. I can’t really say that I blame him. But part of his stuff this week is to learn to tie shoelaces. As we were working together last night, I actually got to use the word “aglet” in a sentence. And I wouldn’t have known that term if it wasn’t for Phineas & Ferb, quite possibly the best cartoon in the history of ever. So there you go. Cartoons can help you learn. Nevermind that I have the aglet song stuck in my head now.
Oh, and if you’re keeping track, it’s now Wednesday and the roofer still hasn’t come. I’ve spoken with the property manager, and he promises me that he’ll be in touch “soon”. Yeah. Apparently our definitions of “soon” are not the same. Maybe they need to watch some cartoons.
