What I Ate Wednesday – #17

Time for What I Ate Wednesday!

What a day we had. Well, actually, it wasn’t all that bad just a whirlwind, which seems to happen a lot with a toddler. Anyway, yesterday when I was picking Emmett up from day care, I got a note stating that he had a fever of 102.4 and would not be able to return to day care the next day without a doctor’s note, but could return on 11/7. Thankfully my awesome sister was able to babysit for us, so Emmett got to stay home with her, in his PJs (so adorable!) all day.

According to my sister he was pretty low-key all day, not wanting to do much but cuddle and sleep, which sounds about how any adult would feel if they had a fever. We had been giving him Tylenol every 6 hours, but after Bridget left he got really hot again and started to whine over anything that touched him. I took his temperature and it was 104.4, which REALLY high for a toddler. As soon as Seamus walked in the door, we called Emmett’s doctor and because they’re awesome, they are open until 7 pm and could squeeze us in. I was so thankful that we didn’t need to go to the ER!

The doctor looked at him, took his temp (it had gotten down to 102, by the time we got to the doctor’s), checked his ears, throat and eyes and everything (except his temp) looked perfect. She ended up giving us a list of about 4 different things that it could be and the advice was just to keep an eye on it. I am perfectly okay with that being her only answer, in fact, I’m glad that it is. If it’s just a fever, hopefully it will just go away on its own in a few days.

Today was a crap food day, though. I perpetually put everyone and their needs ahead of mine, meaning, that when Emmett was sick on Tuesday night, I didn’t take the time to make myself a lunch for Wednesday. I just cared for him and then essentially went to bed, which meant that I ate like poop all day long. Ugh.  No one to be mad at but myself, though.

Onto, What I Ate Wednesday.

Breakfast was my usual Seamus McMuffin. He is so good at making sure we both have a reasonably healthy breakfast from home. We have an english muffin, with 1 egg, a slice of American cheese and a piece of meat, I have Canadian bacon and he has regular bacon.

what-i-ate-wednesday-116-4No snack, but I did stop for Starbucks on my way home from work to relieve my sister so she could go to her meeting. I didn’t get a picture of that, though.

Since we had to take Emmett to the doctor’s and we were there for a long time, waiting (because it was a squeezed in sick call), we stopped and got Little Caesars. Yum! I love their Crazy Bread. We used to get Little Caesars a lot when we were kids and I swear it is just as good now. For cheap pizza, they really know what they’re doing.

what-i-ate-wednesday-116-6That’s it for food, but I have to share these pictures with you. The first three are pictures my sister took and sent to me throughout the day of E-dawg and how he was just crashing anywhere.

what-i-ate-wednesday-116Don’t you just love him???
