Do-over

That's what today should have been--a do-over.

One well-child appointment in the morning, followed by a phone call on my cell from the daycare center. One frazzled call to husband to cover sick kid at home while I sat through a two-hour meeting. One pile of work left behind to go care for ill child. One more visit to the doctor's office. One slightly confused doctor's office staff at seeing me back a mere five hours after the first trip.

One drive by Walgreens. One search for lost bankie. One tired, ear-infected two-year-old.

One blog created to test my skill at this before one frazzled, exhausted mom and editor sets one up at work tomorrow for one writer.

One of those days. Should'a been a do-over.

I'm so honored to be the first commentator! What is everyone else doing around midnight? Can they possibly have already handled their own version of calling the pediatrician's answer line to determine just how you get a urine sample from a male toddler with a suspected infection who is not toilet trained...?

Did you say "well child visit"? I'm just about convinced that there's no such thing as a well child between October and... when?

I love it that you're doing this, and I'll add it to my list of must-reads! May the nap last just a few minutes longer each day (or may I sneak yet another personal web link onto my work computer)!
