The Longest Day

Keegan did not sleep well last night and is fighting a cold. I decided to stay home with him today instead of sending him miserable to daycare. At times he was wired but then he'd be clingy. We went by my office to pick up some things I need for a meeting tomorrow morning. We also went by the store to pick up a few items. He had a meltdown during lunch but finally finished eating. Thankfully he went down for a nap around 1:15 and woke up around 4 feeling much better. He went to bed tonight without any problems at the usual time. I prepped my dish for tomorrow night's Selfish Mom's Club. I will share the recipe if they turn out well. Now I think I am going to get ready for bed. And there is a boyfriend I really need some phone time with.
