December Daily: Days 16-18

Man, I have not been on top of blogging lately! I feel like the things I would normally blog I’ve been recording in my December Daily and I feel silly posting that stuff twice! And…both my boys have the plague. They have been out of school all week and I am keeping them home again tomorrow, but sending them on Friday. The coughing and fevers have been off the charts. Oh man.

And so Sunday’s page, the day that illness really took hold, is all about being sick and watching Christmas movies. :)

On Monday, while they both (!) napped, I wrapped some presents. I bought my paper and ribbon from Paper Source this year and I love it. :) I really love splurging on good wrapping paper.

And yesterday Andrew rallied enough to crank out a bunch of Christmas origami rockets to give his classmates for Christmas. For this page I also included the Christmas note that Isaac wrote. He wrote several for grandparents, but this generic one I photocopied for his teachers and therapists.

And that’s where we’re at so far. Here’s hoping for healthy holidays!

About robyn

I stopped teaching Kindergarten in 2005 to become the mom of two crazy boys here in Brooklyn. At first I thought being a stay at home mom meant that I needed to pour all my time and energy directly into my sons, but I realized somewhere along the way that being a rockstar mom meant not only taking good care of my boys, but also taking good care of myself. And taking good care of myself means pursuing something creative...just about everyday. I started Made In Brooklyn to motivate myself in my creative goals as well as share my work with others and perhaps inspire them in their own creative journeys.

    We’re sick here too with strep throat. On antibiotics since Monday. Brendan stayed home again today cause he had a temperature last night. Sent James to school today since he was fever free for 24 hours and said he felt ok to go. Then got a call at 1pm that he wasn’t feeling well. I hope your boys and mine are feeling better for the holiday!!
