Yesterday I was sick. I hate, hate, hate being sick, and I JUST got over a NASTY cold I came down with the week we came home from Regina. So, there was a lot of watch-a-movie-while-mommy-sleeps type of parenting yesterday. Which I felt very guilty about.
Today, however, was an improvement! I still feel sick, but not as bad, and am determined to make this day a positive one despite being stuck in a 1400 square foot townhouse with two kids, no car, and some serious rain. Breakfast was good. Then we pulled out the finger paints, then the window felts (crayola has these felt pens that are for colouring on windows! So cool!), then stamps, and then we made a fort. I must confess to falling asleep in the fort while we were playing, but I think I'd made a good impression up to that point. Then we had lunch, which was popular, and the boys played while I tackled the disgusting kitchen (we had company this week), and then we made a chocolate cake for daddy.
How cool! The return of the fun mommy! She hasn't really been all that available since last August, except in small doses, because she had to pace herself to get it all done alone. Now, she doesn't have to.
Now we just have to cross our fingers that the chocolate cake survives until 7:30 p.m. when Brent gets home!
