I've been lying in bed for the past few days trying to recover from pnemonia. My kids keep wandering in and out of my room, wanting to do things to help me feel better. Here are a few of their helpful ideas:
1. Starshine cut out a balloon-shaped piece of paper and wrote "Fell Well Zoon" on it so I could have a get well balloon.
2. Daredevil (my middle child) fetched me a bottle of Crystal Clear (the flavored, carbonated water I like to drink) and shook it all the way up the stairs before handing it to me.
3. Starshine fetched me a towel.
4. A good friend of our family brought over a card and, knowing my weaknesses well, a fresh peach pie. This is the same friend who introduced us to the Devil's Bread a few Thanksgivings ago. He is, from this moment forward, banned from bringing any food items into our home.
5. The Scientist (my oldest) brought up a piece of peach pie with most of the top crust mysteriously missing and traces of crumbs around his lips.
6. Starshine decided to help me find a title for Alexa (which I've nearly finished now...by the end of the week, it will be done!). His suggestion: Alexa Tate Saves The World. = )
7. And my hubby deserves tons of credit for taking care of absolutely everything, including grocery shopping, for the entire weekend so I could stay in bed and rest.
