07:00 am: two steps back
Teddy was up at midnight again, coughing. We've had a week with no meds and sleeping through, so I was getting kind of spoiled.

We had a hot bath and took some Benadryl and he's sleeping in. I did more to cover the windows, which probably is helping with that (he's been waking up earlier and earlier as the sun streams in).

Staycation #2 coming up next week: puppet show in Northampton, Children's Museum in Boston, Take Your Progeny to Work in Boston, perhaps Children's Museum in Hartford, perhaps Springfield Zoo. We'd be delighted to have company for any or all of that, if anyone's interested.

We'd also be delighted to have company for assorted errands, but I figure our chances are pretty slim. It's loathsome enough replacing your own cell phone, getting your own stuff framed, and buying your own sconces, right?

As delighted as I would or would not be, company is incompatible with the inevitable work I'll be doing.

Oh well.

Depending on your schedule, I wouldn't mind going to the Childrens' Museum in Boston! Being with a kid gives you an excuse to push all the buttons and not feel bad about it. :-)

Well, if it's Wednesday, I'm in. Thursday I have a workshop and have to teach section (but believe me, would MUCH rather be with an actual little kid than college students who just act that way).

Perfect!! Thursday is take your progeny to work day, so we'll be at my office ('cause that's how I want to spend my vacation, uh huh).

We'll be there by 2:00 at the latest. I'm psyched to see you!!

We'll lurk around the lobby (unless we get there unexpectedly early*, in which case we'll come back out again). I have your cellphone number, so I'll call if anything goes awry.


* Which, in the history of toddlerdom, has happened NEVER.

We might be free Thursday afternoon... We have a playgroup from 11:30-12:30, and maybe peanut will sleep on the drive in... then we'll play all afternoon and she'll sleep well that night!

I haven't been to the Children's Museum for years, since ss was 3 or 4 or 5?

Let us know and we might be able to join you!

not Thursday, alas....

Unless Teddy completely loses it at TYPTW day, in which case I'm unlikely to inflict his tantrum-y self on the other patrons. :(

Next time, please please pretty please?

DUH... just re-read my earlier note. No wonder there was confusion! We're LEAVING Thursday afternoon, after TYPTW day... going to Longmeadow (not to the museum). Oy.
