Manic Mojo Monday

What a day. I got to stay home today, cause Damien was coughing his little lungs out over the weekend. So we went to his Doc this morning and picked up some broncitis meds. He's already feeling a lot better, but can't go back to daycare till Wednesday. So today it was up to me to entertain my little booger-boy: I read at least 15 books out loud (some over and over again), did 3 search and find puzzles/games (the which animal lives where kind), went to the grocery store and pushed him around in the cart, went to the drug store where they have little carts for the kids (so I was running after him trying to prevent him from running over other customers), we built legos together, played with of his wooden train set (the tracks went through his entire room), played with finger puppets, jumped on the bed, went to the playground and built some sand-castles, played with the bead roller coaster and I asked about the color of each and every bead, did laundry (he loves helping), not to forget the dancing and singing. I tell you, going to work is relaxing compared to that. I don't know how you SAHMs out there do it. But tomorrow I get to go to work and it is daddy's turn to entertain him :-))

I loved hearing about your day with you little fella. Mine is now 36 years old and I warn you, beware, they grow up to be 6ft tall really quickly. A day like that is a scrapbook memory! :-)
