The pediatrician requested that I keep Finnley mostly at home, and especially away from overly germy places, while she was sick. That isn't easy for people who are on the go a lot and who enjoy exploring pretty much all of our surroundings. However, I want what is best for my baby, and I heeded the doctor's advice. So, our first outing didn't occur until Tuesday of this week. I took Finnley to a Dr. Seuss event in Collingswood at The Pop Shop, a restaurant replica of soda fountain shops of the past. It was an opportunity for us to get out, but we also weren't at a place where we were constantly touching 5 million things that 20 million other germy children had previously touched. A nice balance. Finnley loved it all (balloons! food! toys! friends!), except for the Cat in the Hat. She has a dislike of any costumed anything walking around and intending to invade her general personal space. This includes the Chick-fil-A cow and the Cat in the Hat, most recently. Can't say that I blame her....silly girl!
