I don't know what it is about October but it has been one hellacious month. My days have been packed full of meetings and nearly every project that's on my plate is in high gear. I'm also traveling every weekend this month which means I spend Thurdays and Friday nights frantically packing as well as prepping Dr. D. to watch D2 over the weekend. To add to it all, D2 has been sick nearly every week since starting nursery school. This week an ear infection that I thought was cleared up is back again. Typically, I'm the one to take D2 to the pediatrician when he's sick. This week though I've been pulling long hours in the office and I'm currently in the midst of my team's annual marketing retreat.
D2 woke up this morning cranky and congested. I knew he was going to have to go to the pediatrician but Dr. D. was in clinic all day and not only did I have my retreat going on, I had an executive team meeting I needed to be at to discuss critical headcount and budget issues. Crap. I called D2's nanny Eva this morning at 6am and asked her if she could take him to the pediatrician. Between meetings, I called the clinic and got an late morning appointment for D2. The appointment went fine. D2's going to be fine. He does indeed have another ear infection and will need to take an antibiotic for the next ten days. Eva explained all of this over the phone to me during another break between meetings. Great. Baby taken care of. Check.
