|Not sure where this cute kid's center is but it is not at my club!|
Until a week ago.
One of the other daycare moms sent me a note on Facebook asking if I would be interested in bringing Jackson to the child care at the gym to play with his best bud. They were recently split up into different rooms at daycare and I know they miss playing with each other terribly, so how could I say no? I figured after 3 years, what could happen!
I'll tell you what happened. Strep happened.
Of course I cannot 100% confirm that he picked it up from the child care center at the gym, but there have been no reports of strep at his regular daycare- they ALWAYS post these illness outbreak announcements on the door as if a warning to say, "Guess what? You'll have to stay home with your sick kid soon!" He hasn't been anywhere or around anyone else who has been exposed so I could only make the assumption that he got it from the gym.
He is feeling better but he is still home today with his daddy having what is I'm sure a grand time. When I called to check in, daddy was teaching the kid how to play the Wii. Yikes. What was I thinking leaving them home together?? I'm kidding of course. My husband is wonderful with him. Frankly, as I sit here working my ass off all day, I find myself being insanely jealous of their skip day.
With that said, will I bring him back to the gym? Maybe to go swimming or when he's old enough to play on the computers, play outside on the giant playground or use the climbing wall I'll consider it. Or, until he's old enough to not care or notice whether or not we spend time together. For now, it is more important for me to spend my time WITH him considering we only get a couple of hours together a night. Yes, that means I will have challenges finding the time for a workout, but that is my issue. Not my kid's.
My goal this week is to find the time to get my workouts in despite the whole lack of hours in the day thing. What is your goal this week?
