Rats. I sent Bob back to school too early. He came home today and "stomach flu-ed" all over the place. Hopefully he hasn't infected his whole class. In between disinfecting the perimeter and laundering more pajamas and keeping the guy hydrated, I got to hang out with my sweet little sick one for the rest of the day. We hung out on the couch and watched SpongeBob and drank juice and played Go Fish and it was a grand sick day. If there is such a thing. (There is.)
I spent 16 years in the television business. I worked, by turns, as a writer, director, producer, casting associate, and the gal who gets everybody’s Starbucks order. Later, I spent time as a counselor at an outpatient program for adorable teens with un-adorable psych and addiction issues. Working in the orbit of actors, rock stars, comedians, and teenagers prepared me for my current gig as the stay-at-home mother of a kindergartner named Bob. Now, it’s like the circus has come to town everyday. I am living the dream.
