That brings us to today...I woke up (well Ari woke up at 4:40am) and thank goodness Ian got up with him. I VERY rarely let Ian get up with him as he relishes his sleep more than I do and he does enough for all of us...the least I can do is let him sleep in for an extra 45 minutes or so. But today, I succumbed to the sinus pressure and pain and slept in until 7 am.
|one sick Mommy =(
|lots and lots and lots of juice!
They played and had at least two hours of fun. During this time I made a HUGE batch of homemade juice, homemade chicken soup, roasted root vegetable (parsnip, white potato, sweet potato, turnip, butternut squash and shallot) soup. I folded two loads of laundry and then put my feet up for about 20 minutes before everyone came home. Ari took a fantastic afternoon nap as Kendall and Tyler played in oobleck for a good couple of hours.
|never gets old!
All in all, while I needed to call in a substitute (sort of) it was a far more productive day than I'd imagined!
I'm off to bed early again tonight loaded up on juice and soup as Kendall and Tyler head to the library for the PAWS to read program! Way too cute!!
Here's hoping for a healthier tomorrow!
