Being sick is, of course, no fun for a kid or the parents, but being sick in the summertime is jut plain crappy. We watched all the DVD's we can stand when Anna was really funky. We've colored, done craft projects, puttered about outside, but she hasn't felt like doing much of anything out there. I've made countless suggestions like games or puzzles, but they hold no interest for her, even after the fever has gone away. We took a bike ride to visit the horses down the street this morning, and on such a mild, breezy day, it was delicious. But, we're still itching to go to the pool, to see kids again, to do something FUN! I'm officially in a funk and out of creative energy, and with Anna grumpy too, we're quite the pair. I'm counting the hours until we hop in the car with our floaties and goggles, anxious to see cousins and second cousins.
Until then, I'm asking (begging) for your creative ideas. We (or maybe I) need to do something FUN, something NEW, something ENERGIZING to shift me out of my stuck gear (without exposing other little ones). Suggestions, please?
