Going to church: Wonderful.
Going alone: Not so much.
Finding a dress I've been eyeballing at Target on the 50% off clearance rack: Wonderful
Officer Hottie thinking it makes me look "not as skinny" as I really am: Ugh.
Having a Mexican themed baby shower for two of my cousins: Wonderful.
Having three glasses of sangria: Wonderful.
Having home made flan and fried ice cream: Wonderful. And more wonderful.
My children (mostly) behaving during a baby shower: Wonderful.
My eldest son spiking a 106.2° fever during the baby shower: Not the highlight of my day.
Having three glasses of sangria: Now, with the prospect of needing to take my son to the ER, not so wonderful.
Hottie being able to leave work as soon as I talked to him: Wonderful.
Hottie not answering his cell phone or work phone for 40 minutes: Grrrr.
Knowing that if I really need to get ahold of him I just have to dial 9-1-1: Wonderful.
Being at a family baby shower and surrounded by other mothers and my loved ones: Wonderful.
Snuggle's fever coming down quickly with the help of ibuprofen: Wonderful.
The pediatrician taking two hours to call me back: Not so wonderful.
The pediatrician getting back to me at all: Wonderful.
So, if I'm keeping count correctly, I have 12 Wonderful's and only 5 Not So Wonderful's, so the Wonderful's will win this one.
My baby is going to be ok, although I'm taking him in tomorrow since a fever that high is not ok. At all. He smiled when I told him he would have to miss school. Little stinker.
Oh, and if you've never been to a Mexican themed baby shower, you should. It all started because the preggies wanted Mexican food and it evolved from there. Enchiladas, crispy burritos, guacamole, pico de gallo, Sangria (I think I mentioned that before), virgin margaritas, flan and fried ice cream ... and of course, a piñata. Other than my panic at my son's fever, it was a great party. I've got a pretty awesome family.
