home alone part deux: stuck in new york
B. developed an ear infection while we were on vacation in New York. So now we have to stay at the in-laws until he gets better/finishes taking his antibiotics while DH goes home to work. (M&M bribery has become an essential since he needs to take amoxicillin three times a day. Oh and I learned that B. will actually try new food if offered by another small cousin. Not that he ate the chicken finger but it was the first new non-snack food he's tried in months.)
Of course the plane trip here was fantastic. B. slept 3.5 hours on the plane, or enough time for me to watch Crazy, Sexy, Love (shown free on Xmas day!) and part of a Real Housewives of Atlanta marathon. And I got a free Bloody Mary...it couldn't get much better. But that was when I had backup. Flying home solo with a kid is no fun, especially since ordering drinks just gets you the stink eye. But really, who needs a cocktail more than a single mom?
