Yesterday, I had plans to take a picture of Addie with 14 flags because yesterday was Flag Day. Hooray for the flag! It needs its own day, evidently.
Instead, I spent the morning at the doctor's office where Sydney received a nice summer celebration present: medication to treat her strep throat.
And for good measure, I had to walk out of her appointment in order to spare everyone the fun that is "the stomach flu."
What a way to celebrate Flag Day--strep throat and stomach flu (times two: Jason has it also, although since his seems to be 3% worse than mine (approximately), I get to be the designated parent). Good times.
So, the flag will have to wait until later in Addie's Numbers, and instead we have 14 spinning pinwheels and 1 very smiley baby. Fortunately, she's been very healthy. And she doesn't mind it if I lay on the floor reading a Boxcar Children mystery to Syd. I'm like one big jungle gym.
Happy (day after) Flag Day. If you haven't put out a flag for the summer, well, go ahead and do that. It'll look very festive and summery and make you feel patriotic.
