Sick Day

Both boys are recovering from fevers and coughs this Saturday. Luke is a little worse off, but Colton is not himself either. The day was not easy. Bad moods and short tempers made for a chaotic house. I resorted to extra “quiet time” to give us all a break. It helped for a bit. I tried to make cookies with the boys to see if I could brighten spirits, but it just caused more conflict with arguments over who’s turn it was to mix in ingredients and also left behind an extra messy kitchen. To top it off the cookies burned a bit and were not very good. Taking the dinosaurs outside and making footprints in the mud was the most fun they had all day, and helped lift up moods for 22 minutes. I’ve already set our clocks forward and trying to trick the boys into an early bedtime tonight.
