This week has been a little bit nuts.
Ezra came down with a 24-hour fever Monday evening, and we kept him home until today. That put a bit of a kink in our schedules as I had some meetings I was looking forward to (some Jamie covered me for, some I rescheduled) and then there was just a lot of quietly playing with/entertaining the toddler. We drew, we read and yes, we watched TV.
We don’t watch hardly any television with Ezra. Not because we are high and mighty and think all television is bad. I mean, we all know how addicted Jamie and I are to such classics as Buffy, right?
No, we have found that when Ezra watches television, he turns into a zombie who will not listen to (or mind) his parents. We noticed this pretty early on, and just decided the nightmare it brought on the rest of the day wasn’t worth the 30 min. of bliss it brought us in the morning.
But that said, when the kid is sick and needs to rest, a movie is the best way to accomplish that. And luckily for us, when Ezra is sick he is pretty well behaved anyway. So we watched Robin Hood (which he adores) and The Incredibles (which I loved).
Today the squirt is back at school and I am diving into the backlog of work. And you guys, it is so quiet in this house. It is glorious.
Oh! The photo up there! I should mention that, eh? Well, even though I’ve been home during the days with Ezra, Jamie has been (wonderfully) coming home early from work so I can keep my fall shooting schedule. And of course, besides the amazing color, I’m drawn to the birds in the sky. Last night was lovely.
Now! For your internet shares of the day!
+ I don’t want to own a cabin. I mean, I would take one if it were gifted to me, don’t get me wrong, but I prefer to not have the added mortgage/headaches. That said, this blog post is so inspiring that I might someday change my mind.
+ You know how much I love paper art. Such creativity!
