Tuesday afternoon our house went from a place to run and play to a place to lay around and watch movies. My normally full of energy little boys started running fevers and just wanted to curl up on the couch.
As a mom, I never want my kids to be sick. I never want them to feel bad. But, I have a little confession to make. A part of me loves sick days when we can just sit around, watch movies and cuddle.
We made music videos, homemade applesauce and worked puzzles. We took afternoon naps and long stroller walks downtown to get milkshakes. My new favorite walking destination!
This morning they were still under the weather and I was started to feel bad. So, we all headed to the doctor. Walking pneumonia and an upper respiratory infection (for mom) were the verdict. I think a few more days of watching movies and we will be back to our normal full of energy house!
The knife in the above picture is from Pampered Chef. They are designed to be used by kids. They will cut food but not fingers. We love them! It allows the boys to help in the kitchen. They usually end up munching more veggies than if they didn’t help with the preparation.
