The Blahs

You may have noticed that the blog has been seriously lacking this week and that is because I am currently suffering from my one cold of the year. That's the way it tends to work for me, I get one seriously nasty cold every year although it did show up a bit earlier this year. To be completely honest Playhouse Disney has been the babysitter at our house this week. Sure to some it may seem like a 'bad mommy' thing to do but when I can barely keep my eyes open Mickey Mouse and The Imagination Movers are my best friends! Really isn't that the worse part of being a stay at home mom? No sick time! Ugh!

Thankfully I think the worst of my cold is over and now I am running on coffee and DayQuil - what a combination! Yesterday I was feeling well enough to take Madison to story time at the library.

And before you start shouting at your computer screens that how dare I spread my germs I swear (cross my heart!) that I am not sneezing, coughing or snotting all over the place! Plus hand sanitizer is always in my pocket these days!

While browsing for new books at the library I found only the most perfect book for our house this week! Iris Has a Virus is the beautifully illustrated tale of a young girl who comes down with the flu! Like I said PERFECT for our house this week!

Madison giggled away at bedtime last night listening to this story! On another note I LOVE Madison new found desire to 'read' us her books. Every night after we read our bedtime story Madison says "I can't read the words yet but I will tell you the story" and she then goes through the book telling us all about the story. I love listening to her tell the story because then we get to find out what parts she really pays attention to!

Fingers crossed I am feeling up to some craft time in the next few days so we can get some fun Thanksgiving projects done!

I hope you feel better soon. It's hard to be a mom when you are sick.

Feel better soon! I know how hard it can be when you're sick with a little one at home.

Best wishes to feel better quickly! Emma and I were sick together a few weeks back and it was like torture. Hang in there!

Sorry that you've been sick. This book sounds very interesting. I'll make sure to add it to my reading list :)
