If ever there was the perfect day to be stuck at home with a bad cold, yesterday was it.
Cold, wet and dreary.
So I guess it wasn't just a two day hangover that had me dragging my ass.
I've got a cold.
I knew it would only be a matter of time.
It seems as though everyone I know has got something.
But so far lulu is feeling fine.
Knock on wood.
Not sure how long that will last for.
I was trying my best not to breathe on her, and I washed my hands a bout a million times.
Yesterday she was sooo sweet. It's like she knew that I was feeling crappy.
She was nice and mellow, snuggling with me on the sofa and a couple of times actually covered me with her blankie.
Just watching her quietly play with her books, stuffed animals, stickers and puzzles made me feel better.
By around 5 p.m. I could tell she was getting a little bit of cabin fever but other than colouring on my keyboard with washable crayons she was a complete angel all day.
This morning big daddy doesn't have to work until noon, so he has taken Lulu to her music class.
What a guy.
I didn't want to spread my sick germs to all the kids, but I didn't want Lulu to miss out on some fun,
because I'm sure today will be another day spent down in "the cave" watching treehouse.
But I have to admit I am really relieved not to have to go to music class.
The teacher is kind of a freak.
I know that sounds horrible, but it's true.
She doesn't really sing, more like yells and makes a bunch of weird animal noises.
and I know this probably sounds petty, but she has reallllly dirty bare feet.
Which realllllly grosses me out.
The first time we took a music class the teacher was amazing.
She sang beautiful children's songs and lulu really got into things.
This time around I can tell she's not into it (same with most of the other kids)
This woman is down right scary.
But I dished out $175. for 8 weeks of classes so I feel kind of obligated to go.
It amazes me how children as young as 17 months old can pick up on a vibe.
Lulu knew I was under the weather yesterday and totally was sensitive to that.
She gets the vibe that this music teacher (and I use that term loosely) is strange so she stays by my side or runs for the door.
I guess you can't underestimate a child's intuition.
Especially Lulu. She is one tuned in toddler.
I hope she gets the vibe that I still feel like crap today and is as sweet as she was yesterday.
