On Being Stuck at Home with Sick Kids

‘Tis the season of the runny nose.  The worst part about this time of year isn’t the sick kids, it’s being trapped at home with little ones who are too contagious to be unleashed onto the world but still too spunky to stay in bed and sleep it off.  If you find yourself in that particularly frustrating position, you might want to check out my momtastic post, 10 Activities When Sickness Has You Stuck at Home.  Then, once you’ve adequately tuckered out the little guys, read this post, snuggle them close and enjoy the moment.


Happy Weekend!


P.S. Reading books is another excellent sick kiddo activity and today just happens to be  the birthday of the magical Dr. Seuss.  Check out this post from last year for lots of fun ways to celebrate.
