Our Monday night started out with the girls finding the most comfortable place in the house to read.
Please tell me when Ella grew from toddler to little girl? Because as far as I know, I just blinked and blammo - kid.
And then a new use for the laundry basket was found. It first started out with simple drops to the knees.
But it blossomed into full on jumping. It looks as if she's sitting on something, doesn't it?
Allison's jumps started out a little less graceful. Face plants.
But soon, she was in the game too, finding the courage to jump straight up too.

As I recover from surgery today, Ella is home with me. Unfortunately it's not to help mommy rest - she has a low grade fever. Low enough she doesn't realize she's sick, but high enough I couldn't send her to school.
I know this may sound a little terrible, but right now, I wish she felt her sickness. When kids are sick, at least when my kids are sick with a fever, all they want to do is lay down on the couch and watch a movie. This kind of behavior would really help me out right now. But since she doesn't even realize she's sick, I'm living the "mom-look-at-this" world every 2 minutes. But of course I don't hope she gets even more sick. I just need a little rest.
note - blogger's formatting when using pictures SUCKS. I'm going to have to go to straight html as I can't stand having to fix all the auto paragraph "formatting" they do! If this post doesn't look straight to you, I apologize. It looks formatted on my screen, which means it probably looks all goofed up to you.
