Who says when you are sick with a cold and a cough, stuck in the house and have laundry to fold that you can't have a party at the same time? Emily and Lindsey have been stuck in the house with horrid coughs. We have been inside the house for days and my laundry was piling up. Emily was so sick of being couped up while the kids in the neighborhood are running through the sprinklers and having BBQs right outside our window. I need to fold laundry and she needs attention. Well, heck, who says you can't combine both needs?! So when the baby went down for her nap (this is often Emily and Mommy time and I try to think of something fun for her or for both of us) I told her we would have a party while we folded the laundry and ate a treat.
I look in the fridge and pantry only to find NO CHOCOLATE in the house! Oh yeah, I don't keep chocolate in the house or I would be a million lbs by now. No ice cream, same reason. So basically no treats. Say, we have canned peaches AND whipped cream. Peaches and cream- absolutely! Now for a girls movie.
My girls are never too young to introduce girly movies to.
Emily really had fun and folded all of the wash cloths, her underwear and sorted out the socks for me. Thanks so much Emily for a fun day together! I hate it when they are sick and I am stuck inside too, but once in awhile it is nice to build some memories together.
