Well, here we are on day 2 of our quarantine. Maddie has a nasty cold, so I, being the responsible parent that I am, am staying in again. We normally go to a Bible study on Tuesday mornings, where I go to a small group session then to a large group lesson while the kids stay in a nursery and preschool class, but Maddie is a bear right now! Plus, if someone else would have stayed home with their snotty-nosed kid last week, I probably wouldn’t be dealing with this. Not to sound bitter, but just saying.
So, I changed my grocery pick-up time to 5:30 when Jason can swing by the store to get them and am spending another day at home. It is a rainy, dreary day, so I can’t say I mind that much. But it is only 11:00. By 5, I will probably have a different mindset.
Charlie has been amusing me with his funny sayings today. This morning, he, Jason and I were sitting in bed for a few minutes. We were watching our usual morning news program and Sonia Sotomayor was being interviewed. I got a little teary when they showed a replay of her being sworn in as Supreme Court Justice and saw the look on her mother’s face. Jason started making fun of me, and I explained that I was just imagining how proud her mother must be of her, and how awesome it would be if one of our children accomplished something like that. Then I told Charlie that we named him Charles Edward because he could do anything with a name like that. He promptly informed me, “No, my name is Spiderman.” I guess I would be proud to be Spiderman’s mom, too. He does work to rid the world of evil, after all….
Here’s some pics from our morning spent in the tub. I got the bathroom really nice and steamy, sort of like a rainforest, to get Maddie’s congestion moving around a bit. I had some almost empty soap bottles that I filled up with water and let them squirt around the tub, so they wanted to stay in there a long time. FYI, the water is yellow because I put a couple of drops of yellow food coloring in the tub, not because it was peed in (although that may have happened, also).
Anyway, we are off to continue our day. I need everyone to pray that I make it. And of course, that Maddie feel better soon.:)
