Bearing the Cold, Strep Throat and a Runny Nose

On Monday, Thea came down with a fever that raged and ebbed between doses of Tylenol, and Finn had an incredible runny nose and a terrible time trying to sleep at night. By Thursday evening, they were buoyed by amoxicillin for Thea’s strep throat diagnosis, Finn’s nose had cleared, and they were running around the kitchen island once again.

They boogied with Georgie-the-Puppy, who plays music and dances on command.

On Saturday morning, we were back to the Y for swim classes… and back to our routine of shooing Finn away from the buttons on the vending machines while we wait for Thea’s class to finish.

We went to the Yellow Bird Cafe for lunch, like we usually do.

Thea and I met up with our friends Tracy, Rhys and Kaya at the Whitaker Center’s Kids Place. Rhys and Thea have been great friends since they met in the daycare nursery, more than four years ago.


And here’s the MVP of the week! Finn the potty-goer!
