I hate missing work. I absolutely HATE it. I’m thankful for my employment and genuinely love my job.
But when the little girl is sick, someone has to stay home with her. Daycare won’t take her, and Jill can’t be the one to miss work every time.
So I was home with Maisa the last two days. It drives me nuts to miss one day of work, let alone two. I love spending time with my daughter, but I’d obviously rather have her be healthy and go to daycare.
Good news is that Maisa is not seriously ill. Just a nagging fever, which I suspect will subside by tomorrow.
I tried to make the most of my unexpected extra time with Maisa the last two days. I read and played with her for hours and hours.
She is getting really, really good at knowing what things are. I’ll hold the book and say, “Where is the sun?” and Maisa will point to the sun. “Where is the tree?” and she’ll point to the tree.
I suspect she is starting to get a grasp on numbers and letters, too. We practice those all the time with her Elmo book, and my little girl is a quick study.
The Dodgers completed a three-game sweep at San Francisco today. Raffy Furcal stayed red-hot, as did Matt Kemp. Those two guys homered in the same inning today.
Los Angeles is 21-5 against NL West opponents this season.
