Some Ideas for other Mommies who are Sick

So I have the flu.  I thought it was going away but I guess not.  It's really hard, when you have a two year old, to relax and try to get better, but here are some of the things I did today. Cupcakes was climbing all over me, as usual, and I feel bad telling her she can't, but I had to.  It was very uncomfortable for me and I didn't want her to get too close to my germs. 1.)

It is difficult to watch a toddler while sick.  I think that goes without saying, I mean, it's … [Read more...]
