The prescription, I fear, is more than a little cowbell.
The girls have been sick for over a week now. The one time I took them out for a quick errand this old lady walked up to me, and told me she heard that girls coughing, and shouldn't I get some socks on their feet? My girls don't leave anything on their feet most of the time. It's a battle I refuse to fight, especially when they're just going to be chillin' in their stroller. And anyway, it was 70 degrees outside for heaven's sake.
Anyway. Yeah. So, we're staying home. I can only be gracious to so many old ladies (however well-meaning they might be) in one week.
The staying home thing is giving me some serious cabin fever! And I know the girls are feeling it too.
The most recent Parenting Magazine had something on their cover cabin fever remedies, and I got all excited thinking I was going to read tons of awesome ideas of stuff to do inside. The article was only one page, so not quite what I was hoping for.
Here are a few of their suggestions off of the top of my head:
- Let your kids go swimming in the bathtub
- Build forts about of pillow and couch cushions
- Play volleyball with balloons
I'd love to hear all your lovely suggestions. Maybe we can all help each other beat cabin fever this winter!
