Well, I’m down to 1 kid again… the little girl was just fine this morning and was hustled off to daycare quickly lest that change.
Today’s sick day is brought to you by the #1 (thank the powers of the universe that only 1 kid is home sick today), and the letter “W” for whining (so far I’m the only one whining but I’m sure the boy will join me before long), and a huge thanks to our sponsor, Apple, for inventing the iPad to entertain the boy.
Because I have only one sicko here today, I’m hoping to drag him off to the library. I’ve been meaning to get a membership and I think I can manage it with only one kid in tow. I plan to get a huge stack of kid’s books to keep him occupied for the day.
It’s a stupid plan though, because I already know it won’t work. He is guaranteed to require me to read each book at least twice.
Maybe the library is the wrong idea. Maybe I’ll go to the dollar store and get a bunch of colouring and activity books… for when the iPad stops holding his attention.
What would you do to keep a sick 4 year old, on his 5th day of being sick, entertained so that you can get some actual work done?
