|i've always loved this picture of me and Ella. Taken almost 7 years ago. We both look so much different now.|
I've been really sick these last few days. Sore throat from hell. Totally ruined all my spring break plans for the kids. I feel horrible that they've been cooped up for 2 days, going on 3. I forced myself out of the house yesterday. Their heads were about to explode if they didn't get some fresh air. Living in a tiny apartment isn't so bad, except for times like this. We're steps away from the best parks and museums, but sometimes we have to pay the price for that.
While I rest, the kids have been watching a lot of TV. But now on day 3, they have been finding other things to do. Currently, they are playing in our endless hallway with a long green ribbon. Don't know exactly what the game is, but Ella seems to have a lot of rules for it. "Clap, jump, turn around. That's how you do it! Or do you want stomp? Break! Time out! Time out!" She's giving out her left over Easter candy to the winner.
Besides making up games, Ella has also been busy writing on her private blog. Here's some of my favorite posts:
Once she got to move up from 1st to the 2nd grade for the day:
Last thursday I went to 2nd grade It was fun . I made new friends .But this kid called David he was mad he thought that he can do whatever he wanted the teacher got mad so he did not get centers he got so mad that he said I will be good the teacher said okay but he lied he pushed somebody he got really hurt so he did not have centers he got bad the teacher said that is A lesson.
and one about my birthday:
When it was moms brthiy we went to a fennsy reashtrot we ate cupcakes and sinwishes and we pinted our nels and we put macup on. I wade a red dress it had 2 pucess. and it was just the 2 of us .we had so munsh fun.And when we got home we had chokelt cake it was kind of like brownnys.Then I taught her how to use spell check:
today went to 2 boots. I ate a cookie it was chocolate chip I taste a bite I like it. but I like it butter. the girl scouts cookies are way butter. and I also had pizza. it was so good it is like the big apple. that is the best pizza in the would . so that is why you have to go to NYC. and for breakfast I had a bagel and they have the best bagel in the would so that is also why you have to come to NYC.Do your kids have blogs? My favorite is when she says, "It's so weird, mom. Your keyboard doesn't have the letter "v"!" And then I have to show her it actually does. "Oh, there it is!"
Hope you have a great weekend! Don't get sick! Wash your hands after reading this post.
