My daughter had a busy weekend. She had a friend over on Friday night, then a birthday party on Saturday. I left her and her brother at their Grandma's on Sunday so my husband and I could do some Christmas shopping. She was fine until about 10 minutes before I picked them back up.
So today I have a sick kid at home lounging on the couch. I've promised her pancakes for lunch since I think her stomach can handle them.
Normally I would have taken a walk around the park after dropping them off at the bus stop. Alas, she's still kinda young to leave in the house by herself for too long, although she is now the legal youngest age to leave for about 20 minutes.
Instead, I will be doing some cleaning and a few things for her that will get her through the day. It's never fun to be sick or be caring for a sick one.
I was going to start wrapping the presents we got yesterday, but I suppose for now they can stay in hiding, all the way down the hall, in our storage locker. They'll never find them there as they have to leave the apartment and use 3 keys to get to them.
So instead of thinking of all the things I 'was' going to do, I'll focus on the things I can accomplish today. Perhaps this means my home will get clean as she doesn't seem too bad, just a little warm and an 'icky' stomach. Since I know her, I wasn't going to attempt to send her just to have to walk her home.
