Feeling better....

Princess woke up with no sign of fever today
and at the early hour of 7:30am which means I should
be able to get to bed at a decent hour tonight.
She does have a runny nose, but no more "headaches"
and crying and whining. I made her pancakes for breakfast
(yeah- her appetite returned as well)and we cleaned up a bit and did some math
worksheets...circle the correct number of ________ and color
the picture..you know the type. Then we watched my sister's friend's
son who will be 2 soon while his Mom went on a job interview.
If she gets the job, we'll have one as well, watching him.
Princess is very excited because they adore each other.
We had fun reading to him and playing with all of Princess's
musical instruments. Princess wanted to play blocks with him,
but he was only interested in putting them back in the storage box.
I forgot how much fun that age can be.
Unfortunately my camera's battery died while we were playing, so
I only got a couple of pictures of them playing together.
After he left, we had lunch and I got yet more tomatoes ready for canning
while Princess played with a Crayola color Explosion set she received for her birthday.
Then she played on the computer for a bit and now she is taking a "rest break" on the couch
with her Elmo stuffed animal...still not 100%, but so much better than the last two days.
Thank you to everyone who wished her well...your kindness always touches us deeply.
I'm posting a picture of our cat Alley keeping watch over P as she napped after dinner last night
on a chair .

I'm so glad to hear that Princess is feeling better- it's so hard to watch them being sick, isn't it?

Glad to hear shes feeling better. I had trouble with blogger today too when I tried to post pics. I havent checked to see if its fixed but its so aggravating when that happens!

I am glad to read that Princess is better. It is awful when they are sick, especially the littler ones.

My 21 month old just got over croup - my first experience with it. Scary!

By the way, I liked your book recommendations too. We'll be looking for some of those at the library!

We have been sick, too! The big one had a fever of 102-103 for about 24 hours and the little one has been having "tummy issues." Ugh, so much fun! Hope she's still on the mend!

Good to hear. You feel so helpless when they're sick. Scary world out there, you protect them as best you can then wham, something out of your control swoops in. Glad she's on the mend.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
