First things first...
THANKS for all the wonderful, supportive comments! You guys are the best!!
It's been kind of a crazy week. I started my new schedule on Monday, and the day went perfectly. Drake was awake right on time, dropped him off at the sitter's, and then headed to work. Tuesday, my sitter had an appointment in the morning so I took Drake into the office for everyone to see him and then we made a quick stop at Target. He went to daycare and decided he didn't want to eat lunch or snack and then had a nice blow out diaper! Wednesday started out fine, but Drake wasn't having a good day. Our sitter called about 12:30pm and had us come pick him up. Poor kiddo wasn't feeling well, so I stayed home with him today. He took two great naps and ate well for me, and we're following the BRAT diet pretty closely. (This kid loves some Pedia.lite! He drank a whole sippy cup full at one sitting, and that is not like him.) We decided to keep him home tomorrow, too. I plan to go to work, but I hear we're supposed to get 6-8 inches of a heavy, wet snow tonight so we'll see. Now, I need to figure out how to calculate the hours I was gone since it was such a crazy schedule. lol!
Hopefully he'll be feeling back to normal because we have his cousin's birthday party to attend on Saturday!
And, maybe next week, I'll really be able to start my new schedule! :-)
