What makes a sick mom smile




Today hasn't been the best day. I spent most of the day in bed, and it has just been in the past couple of hours that I have finally (though quickly) started to feel better.

That said, I wanted to share one of my highlights of today that came right in the middle of feeling the worst.

Emily and Scott went on a "safari" this morning. Emily put animals all throughout the downstairs, and then asked her daddy to wear his "safari hat" before taking him downstairs with flashlights.

I don't know if she has been watching too much Jeff Corwin or what, but this cracked me up. Scott and Emily walked through the entire downstairs on tip-toes, excitedly pointing their flashlights on each beast they stumbled upon. Scott came to get me and told me I couldn't miss the cuteness going on downstairs. So I wearily made it down there and wasn't disappointed.

What a duo!

If anything, mommy being sick makes for some quality daddy/Emily time. Right now they are out grabbing a bite to eat together, and picking up a "yada" (Pinata) for Emily's birthday party this Saturday. I'm thankful they are having a good day together.

So sweet! There isn't much I enjoy more than watching the kids really get their imaginations revved up =)

That is adorable!!! Thanks for the pictures of that. I'm glad to hear you are feeling better. We saw on the new today that the south is getting hit with weather, I do hope you guys are getting hit so you can get a "snow day". I put it in quotes because we can't get a snow day for the life of us and we get multiple inches of snow, you get an inch and everything's shut down =p
