Little Ro is having a tough morning, so instead of preschool the girls are having a sick day on the couch, watching videos, drinking peppermint tea, and snuggling with their favorite blankets and their little friends.
No one is puking, by the way, the girls just think the buckets are required equipment anytime they feel a little off -- sniffles, cough, fever, extra sleepy, you name it, they grab a bucket.
I don't think Ro is really sick (although time will tell), I think she's just tired and needed a nice, warm, reassuring stay-at-home day with mama. Hey, I can understand that, I feel the same way sometimes.
Ree is drinking her tea out of the "all yeh-yowe" sippy that her new hero K2 gave her on our trip to Oregon. Whoohoo! We had hordes of pink sippies in the house, but never had a yellow one before and, as you can imagine, the new sippy is now Ree's prized possession.
TubaDad gets home from his business trip tomorrow, thank goodness, because I'm going through the cookie dough at an alarming rate. We tried something new on this trip that's working really well. The girls picked out a stuffed animal (Funshine) to pack in his suitcase, and then TubaDad emailed pictures of himself and Funshine in various places along the trip. Ro and Ree squeal with delight when each new picture comes in and ask to look at the pictures over and over. It makes them smile, and me too (I just crack up picturing TubaDad asking a stoic businessman on the train to take his pic with a little yellow bear!).
Here's Funshine's trip to Japan so far:
