A little paint never hurt anyone...

As of this morning, I had gotten (if lucky) two hours of sleep in the last 36 hours…

Today I have walked around like a zombie, afraid to look outside.  It has been a hang around the house kinda day.  My sweet angel has been up the past two nights.  I should have known the first night that she was up, that she was getting sick.  She started running a fever late yesterday, and last night she spent most of the night crying and not being able to get comfortable.  My husband did let me take a two hour nap today; to rest up for what I predict will be another long night.  With the way she has been acting this afternoon, you can't even look at her, without her screaming and crying.  I sure hope I'm wrong, and my baby girl gets a good night's rest...
  So, what do you do when your brain doesn’t work…  You forget that you have an A-Type personality, and let the kids make a mess. photo cc612b97-cdd8-41f0-8057-f01ccd846c1f.jpg

I have to say, this was the first time all weekend that these two actually got along and played nice.  For a moment I thought we should do this every day, if it will give me 30-45 minutes of peace and quiet, and then the paint hit the floor, and I freaked.

 Thank you little ones, for letting me join you in the hand painting today!

 Happy Sunday Funday, it is a gorgeous day out!  Hopefully tomorrow my little girl will feel better so we can enjoy the sun!
