Phew. I feel like I just survived a whirlwind of illness. When I last posted, I mentioned that Aaron was sick. Well, since then, Maggie has been diagnosed with a double ear infection and I was struck down with strep throat! Strep throat as a grown up sucks ass. My throat was on fire, I could barely function, and I missed 3 days of work. Aaron ended up taking the kids to his mother's so I could rest - and I seriously stayed in bed for almost 30 hours straight, only waking up for medicine and drinks.
In non-sickness news - Maggie is the 'I do everything myself' phase - which I knows annoys many people, but I just roll with it. she looks at me with this fierce face and says 'NO HELP MAMA!". She insists on dressing herself. She can get fully dressed by herself, which to me is really impressive for a 27 month old. I switched to pullups for her because she loves being able to get dressed - and the extra 4 cents a diaper is worth it. She is so happy with herself. And what she ends up picking out the wear totally cracks me up. Here is today's outfit:
Jean skirt and striped shirt, my pick. Tights, tutu and super hero cape her additions.
And I have a TV question. How much TV do you guys let your kids watch? Cam gets up early in the morning and watches about and hour to an hour and a half while I wake up and get ready for work, and then sometimes another 30 minutes at night. It's always 'educational' or age appropriate(Sesame Street, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Super Why or Curious George) - but he seems OBSESSED with it. He is always asking to watch TV. Always. It's frustrating at times. Either the TV or the iPad. Sigh.
