Entrepreneur or Junk Man?

Cooper’s favorite past time is rummaging through the recycling bin. Thus, his new “toys” you see here.

I like to believe that he’s playing Pizza Parlor and is just trying to work out shipping and inventory logistics for his new restaurant.

- Cooper Hut?

- Papa Coop’s?

- Coopizza Schmizza?

It could work people! It could work!

Rocker Baby

Cooper’s favorite activity last weekend was picking out the rocks, one by one, out of our yard.

Dad, this one is for you.

Logging out for a few days. 
It appears that Tumblr is pretty vulnerable to the latest internet security hack, Heartbleed (you can read a not-so-technical description here). 
So I’m going to log out of Tumblr for a few days.  Don’t worry - visiting Tumblr doesn’t put you at risk but if you are logged in there, I advise you to log out for a little while. I anticipate being back up and running next week.  
In the meantime, I’ll use this time off from Tumblr to update our YouTube channel with videos since I haven’t done that in a few months. 
So if you need a Cooper fix, I’d suggest heading here for more. 
Talk to you next week.

Someone thought he was too cool for school today.

So we got The Call at noon today from daycare saying “Cooper has a rash…”

#%*!

After a quick trip to the pediatrician, it turns out Coop has a mild case of Roseola “or some virus like that” as the nurse so clinically put it.

Sigh. Yes he clearly is in terrible spirits.

Fever Baby, an explanation

Whoops, I meant to post this on Friday shortly after I posted the fever baby photo.  Didn’t mean to alarm anyone.  The short version is: Cooper is fine. 

The longer version is….

On Monday we were notified that Hand, Foot & Mouth disease* was running through daycare.  Once I read how contagious it is, I quickly yanked Coop from daycare, took him home and kept him there for a day to let all the contagion be identified and kicked out.  

By Wednesday morning, seven out of the fourteen kids in Cooper’s class were out with HFM. I smugly patted myself on the back big time for being a proactive mom.  

On Wednesday afternoon, we were notified that, surprise!, Roseola* is also running through the class.  The Petri Dish daycare assured us that they were doing everything in their power to keep things from spreading. 

Meanwhile, I naively thought Cooper had a better constitution than ALL the other children because he had never looked/felt better.  He was the happiest he’s ever been. 

And then fast forward to Thursday afternoon.  The call came: “Hi Mrs Christy, Cooper has a temperature of 101…. 

So home he came and all my smugness just slapped me in the face.

The good news is that his temp got as high as 102.5 on Friday night but was back down to normal by Saturday morning. Interestingly, no bumps. All that fuss about Hand Foot & Mouth and the Roseola and still no bumps. So I’m thinking that Cooper had “empathy fever” which isn’t really a thing but it makes as much sense as anything else in the world of baby health.

Um, can we also talk about these boots for a moment?
They are ridiculous. They have “teeth” on them.  And I just couldn’t resist.  
I couldn’t.
