Home with a “Sick” Kid

February 8, 2007 at 2:20pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in 625 Elm Street

I’m pulling daddy duty today. Robert lost his lunch—actually, his bedtime snack—last night, and our daycare provider asks that kids stay away for at least 24 hours after puking. It’s a reasonable rule, though in this case I don’t think it’s necessary; Robert is bubbly and active and feeling fine, with no sign of a fever or any other symptoms. In fact, I swear this is true: just now Robert pulled himself up to standing next to a kitchen chair, made his way to where he could grab the table with his hands, and then proceeded to do a pull-up. I kid you not. There was actual space between his feet and the ground. If I didn’t have to stand so close to make sure he didn’t hurt himself I would have grabbed a camera. Crazy kid.

Speaking of Robert’s new tricks, he can stand for a couple seconds at a time now. He did that for the first time last night.

I had better go play with the kiddo and watch some Matlock. Hopefully I’ll have time to post on some Lincoln-related topics today, but no promises.

Matlock? I’m getting dental surgery done today. Then I’m going to go eat a cheese frenchee and malt for lunch.
