Day 227 #Project365

When one sick kid on the weekend became two sick kids once the new week started, one had to find more creative ways to entertain the said kids. A collection of good movies were always valued in a time like this, but even watching movies has its limit. Playing board games was out of the questions considering the kids’ low energy. Coughs and sneezes were the music of the day, competing with the endless whining and whingeing.

For Mr 8 however, no energy was too low for Lego building. I found him in his room busy building his dragon and looked quite content. While he looked quite happy and content on the photo,  whilst the other photo gave me quite a different effect. The layer self-denial was getting pretty thin in blocking my vision to all of this, I couldn’t run away anymore. I think the time is here to finally do something about this mess. After I cleaned up all the play doh mess Ms 4 left on the dining table. Of course.

Day 149 #Project365

For my Ms 4 there was no such a thing like Monday Blues, even when she had to stay home because of her cold. This one child of mine actually loves school, so to skip a day usually bums her out. The only reason I kept her home was because last week’s newsletter from school felt like it was addressed to me personally. The letter said for parents whose kids are sick the night or morning before school, we must keep the kids home for the kids’ own comfort and keep the rest from getting sick. Mr 8 had been sneezing and complaining sore throat and blocked nose last week, but drop him off to school I did, because that’s how I roll. No temperature? He’s good to go..!

The newsletter got me thinking and made me feel guilty enough so I kept him off school on Friday. While the school is free of my son’s germs, my house and people who live in it not. Sharing is not always caring especially in this case, we all (except for Hubby who’s out of town) get the his damn cold. Thats why child #2 stayed home today. And this is her in her ‘sick day’ (looking very cheeky with Nutella mustache).

I should’ve known better. So much for trying to have a restful morning.

Day 132 #Project365


132-365 colorful leaves

Consider today’s post is a bumper post, or my sick day edition (hopefully we have minimal of these days this year). As I am still feeling blaah and totally not up to taking any photos today, I posted a photo I took during my photo walk last Anzac Day (25 April). This was (what used to be) a grassy ground in one of the parking areas near Acton park. The grass has all dried up and made pretty by the contrasting colour of the fallen leaves peppered on top of it.
