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.

I feel your pain!

I suggest you gate them in the LR with you, bring in a couple boxes of Cheerios so they don't starve, and REST as much as you can! Or better yet, call someone to come over for two or three hours in the middle of the day so you can take a NAP! If I were there I'd take them to the MallPark (y'all have playgrounds in your malls there, don'tcha?) and run them ragged for you. :)

We pretty much are holed up in the LR with fruit snacks and frozen waffles. We do have one of those playgrounds but they are loud and crowded.
