All that work....

So...we were supposed to leave on our road trip to la belle province this afternoon.  All the items on my checklist had been checked:
-clothing packed
-vitamins, toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, etc. packed
-toys and activities for the car
-gluten free snacks and a spill proof cup
-towels, blankets, pillows, you know, just in case
-the list goes on.  

What did I not have?  A healthy toddler.  Sigh.  The daycare called this morning to tell me that my little one had already experienced 3, count 'em 3 bouts of diarrhea.  By 10:30 a.m.

We picked him up early, and by 5:00 p.m. that count had gone to 6.  So, with all of our road trip items piled by the front door we called our friends and apologized for having to cancel. 

I don't think we've fully given up on the idea though, because we refuse to move the bags from the front door, hoping that he'll feel good enough to set out in the morning.  Wishful thinking, I know.  But it's all we've got right now.  The more reasonable option will probably be to reschedule for next weekend, although I was looking forward to visiting that wonderful sounding bakery I posted here.  I guess another week won't kill me.  And the brownies I baked once I realized we wouldn't be leaving tonight will have to do as a substitute for the french pastries I was looking forward to sampling.  All in the name of research for this blog, of course.  Oh well, as they say, c'est la vie!
