Moms, you know the scenario-- snotty nose, cough, tired eyes from several nights of restless sleep, but no fever (unless 99 degrees counts for something), no vomit, no major red flags that require a stay home day from school. It's one of those times where "mom instincts" kick in. You just know your baby needs a day off to rest and recover. And that's the kind of day Lucas and I had.
He wasn't sick enough to just lay pathetically on the couch, so I let him guide our plans for the day. What did my boy want to do?
Later, after the cake cooled, we made cream cheese frosting to complete our baking experience.
At this point, Mom needed a break and we needed some lunch, so it was movie time. He vegged out on the couch and watched Turbo while I got our lunch ready and straightened up the house a bit.
I sure love this kid. And I'm happy to report he is feeling much better. :)
