You need a good stock of this:
There is a LOT more of this than usual:
And you let them do things you would normally never do:
(at least they’re eating, something one of them hasn’t wanted to do much of lately.)
And when watching TV in the living room gets old, it is always great to mix things up:
With more TV. In a different room.
But only when they’re sick.
Eli is actually the sick one. Horrible cough and fever since Friday. He seems to be on the mend (finally) today but is exhausted because the cough has been preventing quality sleep (that includes for parents too) and he has been
VERY a little grouchy today.
In the last picture you will notice my nearly 3-year old boy still has his paci. That is another thing I relented on this week. Lately we only give it to him for sleeping but we’ve regressed with his illness. Which is only going to make it harder when we take it away next month, one birthday present I don’t think he’s going to appreciate too much.
Hannah has a cough but it hasn’t developed into what her brother has been dealing with.
Hopefully they will restock all the On Demand shows in case we have a round two around here soon. I’m pretty well caught up on the lives of Fireman Sam, Dora the Explorer, Diego, Mickey Mouse, and the Scooby Doo gang.
Oh, and thanks for all the comments on Hannah’s drawing. I was very impressed with some of your interpretations – some of which were very accurate!
Jacquie got the closest guess I think – but SHE IS Hannah’s preschool teacher so she does have an advantage!
So what you see is the sky (but since the sun is setting some of the clouds are reddish). Below that you have a person on a hang glider, a hot air balloon, and an airplane in the sky. At the bottom is the ocean (see the crab and the guy in the row boat?). With a few spring flowers added for good measure. Sorry to the rest of you who suggested it was a fighting mushroom scene, perhaps next time?
