After the earthquake and the fun of taking Aidan to meet his teacher, he was off all day on Friday. In order to conserve a little time, Daddy stayed home in the morning with him and I came home for the afternoon.
Friday afternoon, I took Aidan to the Dentist for his bi-annual cleaning and check up. When he was called back, he looked at me and said, "I don't need you to come back with me Mama." Oh. Okay. : ( When did he grow up all of a sudden??? I was called back when the cleaning was done, which he did very well, I'm told. His teeth look great. When I asked the dentist about possible tooth fairy visits, he said all of Aidan's teeth are still firmly in place and that I should not look for that to happen for about another year. Okay. Sounds good to me! No sign of the next set of molars, either. Cool!
Then we were off to the barber shop to meet Grandma, Grandpa and Daddy for hair cuts for the boys. We got there first and we went ahead with the cut. It was sorely needed--his hair in back had gotten soooo long!!! Aidan was finished up right about the time everyone else got there so I snapped this picture of my baby with a fresh hair cut and clean teeth!
Not long after this, though, Aidan said he wasn't feeling well. In fact, by the time we got to dinner, he felt decidedly warm. I took Aidan home after dinner and took his temperature-- 101 Degrees!!! I gave him some tylenol and put him in his pj's and we sat down to watch some TV while we waited for Daddy to get home. But, Aidan fell asleep at 7:15
He slept, in his bed after I carried him up there--two flights!--until 7:30 yesterday morning! He said he was better and he no longer had a fever, but I stayed cautious with him We did go to a birthday party after which he napped for two hours and then off to bed before 9:00 where he slept again until 7:00 this morning. At least I had the excuse of Irene to keep him quiet!
We seemed to have been spared the worst of Irene's wrath, thanks be to God! We did have some heavy rain and some heavy wind, but no damage that I can see. We'll be off to church in a little bit so we might see some then. Crews from Pat's office did go down to Virginia Beach where power outages are pretty high. So, he'll be working 16 hour days for the foreseeable future. Well, that's the nature of this Power Company business! I, on the other hand, should be spared the brunt of the damage phone calls as I will be off tomorrow for Aidan's first day at school. I am sure I'll get my share on Tuesday though!
Although we are starting Kindergarten tomorrow, we're hoping for a quieter week to come!!
