Sick Days

When you are a mommy there are no sick days. I have had a horrible cold for two days now and the girls are as hyper as ever. They try taking care of me with their little doctor kit but unfortunately it is not helping. I should miss the days when being sick meant spending the day in bed watching cheesey movies but there is something to be said for the tender ministries of loving toddlers. Of course, if they would let me take a long nap I think I would feel better faster. For now we will just cuddle on the couch and watch Dora until we drool. Maybe tomorrow I will feel well enough to play with them, but right now I will just be an observer into their world.

Candy Hangover

After the kids went to bed last night, Dave and I stayed up drinking beer, watching scary movies and raiding the kids trick or treat bags. Now I feel a little hungover and my tummy hurts. You would think an adult would know better, the kids each had one piece and went to bed. It is so hard to resist the overflowing candy bucket. Ah, the evils of trick or treat candy. I think it needs to find a new home!
