Looks like we made it
I was in major dread of the last few days with no school and minimal plans - which all ended up getting canceled due to other's illnesses ('tis the season). But we got through it. I took us on a hike in Malibu. We played in the attic. We walked the Silverlake reservoir with the crappy old stroller which hardly steers anymore. We drove around a lot. Bobby watched the PBS Kids app on the Roku while I fed and tended to the baby. Bobby learned lots of new Beatles songs thanks to YouTube - Get Back is his current favorite, followed by Hey Jude because he likes when Paul starts yelling at the end. Last night he had a bit of a freak out after I put him to bed - I went in three times to comfort him but he kept yelling, "I need a hug! I need a hug!" Finally I went in and just lay down with him for a while because I could tell he was really distressed about something. I think he got scared by this thing in a Cat in the Hat episode where the characters got stuck in some nectar - he was screaming and crying and I had to turn it off and convince him they were ok and they got out safely. And I saw The Shining when I was eight. How's that for generational differences?
