Today I am sick. Stuffy nose, sinus headache, weak body. It's not fun. The kids are all fine, and they are trying to make things very nice for their mama.
Here's a look at a sick day...
Mama in some comfy sweats and big shirt, bundled on the couch, reading when her hands are empty. Babies (still in their jammies) crawl up on her lap and snuggle, then get down and play. Kids doing school work, then coming to mama for some nice read-alouds. Bringing mama water, then going and doing more work or reading their own books. Taking breaks and playing with the babies and/or each other.
Lunch will be something easy...peanut butter and jelly and bananas, maybe.
More play and reading. Maybe a late afternoon family movie.
Dinner...I have frozen sloppy joe mix that I made a few weeks ago, just waiting for a night like tonight when mama couldn't cook. We will probably thaw that and have it for dinner, nice and easy.
It's not fun being sick, but everyone helps out and we make the best of it! As long as mama can read out aloud and snuggle, everyone's happy!
