Have I mentioned I love my kids? ;-)

I'm glad we did our running around yesterday.

This morning, I woke up aching from head to foot and feeling completely drained. Now I know why my arm had been more sensitive the last couple of days. Sucks that I had to cancel my physio appointmet, though. I ended up sleeping, instead. The receptionist asked if I came down with the flu bug that's been going around - she'd been fielding cancellations all morning.

With me sluggishly making my way through the morning, then finally going for a nap in the afternoon, that left the girls responsible for taking care of things. Eldest made lunch for us, which we ate while watching a library movie. Womb Animals. Not exactly lunchtime fare. *L* It's a good thing stomache upset wasn't a problem for me. ;-) Then, when it came time to make supper, I found I still wasn't up to standing around long enough to tend the stove, so Eldest took over again and finished for me.

Life is so much easier with older kids. I love that I can have a day like this and trust completely that they can take care of things and don't need to be watched over, like when they were little.

This is exactly what I can't wait for. Being a SAHM of toddlers, busy with my university studies as well, I feel so overwhelmed sometimes with them relying on me for everything all the time. I can't wait for the day I won't be forced to cook etc even when I'm totally out with the flu.Hope you're enjoying the new home.
