SAHM For A Day

I was supposed to spend five hours on the road today. But instead I stayed home with Keegan. He was tired yesterday when I picked him up from daycare but still up for a bike ride. Then he was up around 4:30 this morning coughing. I gave him medicine and he went back to sleep but he wasn't himself when I woke him later. I fgured it was better to have him home where I can guarantee that he will get more rest so this doesn't turn into anything more serious.
I took him in to stop by the office and check my email and send some work home. We had made a deal to try the playground afterwards. There were quite a few people there. He had no pep and instead wanted to pet dogs and watch babies. He is going through a baby love phase. Lunch at home followed and then a two hour nap. I can hear him now and I'm ready for a snack too. My mom is supposed to come up tonight because I have a meeting at 6:30. It's not directly work but it is related. Because I have been home all day I am less than excited about going. We'll see.

PS New pics of Keegan and Isabelle in the gallery under April 2006. They ride racehorses and sport fabulous sunglasses. The last pic I look like I am fighting back vomit. Not exactly but that thing did go fast. Does this mean I've lost my love of rollercoasters?
