This week we had 3 different playdates, which would normally be a good thing, right? I have been trying to expose Aiden to as many experiences as possible so he can learn how to socialize with kids his own age. I have been concerned that being at home with me might be a little stifling, plus I’d like a break from playing all the time.
Aiden was great for all the playdates, so as far as socializing he is doing fine, but the timing was bad. Allergy season is in full swing and Aiden has not been able to escape the symptoms. Playing outside 3 days in a row was probably not a smart move on my part, but he was having so much fun. It was no longer fun when he woke up every 2 hours at night not being able to breath because he was so stuffy. The children’s Claritan helped him a little but he just wouldn’t stay upright at night which made it worse.
This means we are both tired and cranky to attend a time honored tradition of Ag Field day at my Alma Mater. I was sad to miss the events and share them with my family, but we both needed a down day. It was worth it because we each got the rest we needed and our noses thanked us as well. I guess too much of a good thing can be bad.
