of life lived in a house full of flu. Okay, in reality, the flu seems only to have hit a few of us, but if mama has the flu, the world should stop, right?
Here are just a few images from the past couple of weeks and the thoughts that go with them:
Y’all, I still just don’t get it. Every mother in the pediatrician’s office is trying to keep little hands off flu-infested things, and THIS is sitting in the waiting room. Help a mama out, please!
Clearly, the Rainbow Loom craze has hit my household. I’ve enjoyed making bracelets with my big girl, and she has noticed something about her task-oriented mother. She said she should give me my own loom for my birthday.
I’ve probably mentioned chapatis on this blog before (most likely when raving about food in Kenya), but let me tell you: as comfort food goes, you just can’t beat a good chapati. This week, when I started feeling like I could sit up straight again, I made stew and chapatis for supper. The flu didn’t stand a chance. (Chapatis are sort of like a tortilla, but thicker, and used much like a spoon with Kenyan foods. I’ll post the recipe soon…you need it!)
My son STILL loves dinosaurs, which is saying something considering the fact that my husband watched Jurassic Park with him. He’s almost four. I almost died and really thought the end of his dino craze had finally come. No. My little dinosaur just roars a whole lot louder now. He’s been coloring dinosaur pictures for everyone (I mean EVERYONE. Seriously, if you met him in Wal-Mart yesterday, there’s probably a picture for you on my fridge.) Naturally, he knows exactly which picture is for which person because nothing says “love” like a dinosaur.
And a couple of thoughts that don’t come with photos:
We hit a milestone in our house yesterday. My oldest daughter made me coffee and brownies. ALL BY HERSELF. Finally, someone else around here can do the important things!
It’s January in Mississippi so I really shouldn’t have to say this, but in case you haven’t noticed, this weather is absolutely crazy! Okay, I feel better. I just had to get that off my chest.
