It has been a difficult week. Tiger has been very ill with high fever and severe headache all this time. It took three visits to the GP to find out that Tiger has a middle ear infection, which most likely resulted from his weekly swimming lessons. There is no a lot to be done apart from taking the prescribed antibiotics and waiting for the bacteria to be gotten rid of. The infection is a nasty one, causing such a spliting headache for Tiger that he (and consequently, I) has been woken up by the pain several times in the night for the past week. Hence, all external activities have been cancelled, with Tiger spending most of his time lying on the sofa. He is only well enough today to play with LEGO and his train set.
Compared to how active Tiger normally is, this week has been very boring for him as all external activities have been cancelled due to his being ill. With all my not-so-well-planned December plans out of the window, luckily we have been able to manage some continuity with the daily unwrapping of Christmas-related storybooks.
and rewatching a Christmas classic:
When he felt well enough to get off the sofa, we continued to look through the RI space-themed advent calendar, watched the second week of the Angel Trail, and made tin can lanterns that turned out to be very pretty.
At the very beginning of the week Tiger felt really terrible so in order to distract him from the physical pain that he was experiencing, my husband had the brilliant idea of introducing Tiger to a classic movie that he (my husband) has always wanted them to watch together:
No, Tiger will not be getting any Star Wars-related presents.
