Daily Count

Just so it’s official, blog posts and other internet time wasting DOES NOT count towards the daily word count quota. See that, self? It’s official.

If it’s on the internet, it must be true.


My little girl has a fever. We were up in the middle of the night when she woke and complained about being hot. I think the exact quote was “I’m hot."

There’s nothing quite as anxiety-inducing as having a two year old who’s sick. Every manner of ailment crosses your mind, every possible cause.

We toyed with the idea of going into the ER, but after giving her some Advil she seemed a little better, so we opted to stay at home.

We watched some reruns of Dora the Explorer while waiting for the meds to kick in. If anyone would have told my 20 year old self that one day I’d be watching Dora at 4am with my daughter on my lap, I’d have laughed.
