Jack is sick again. He is snotty and coughing and having trouble nursing and sleeping. I am crossing my fingers that I don’t catch it! That’s probably hoping for too much.
When he went to bed at 8:30 last night, I decided I would join him just in case we were in for a rough night. I am so glad I did because he woke up a few times, and couldn’t get back to sleep at the 4am waking. We went into the living room for a while where he made me color for his entertainment. This is a common occurrence, and I recently started running out of ideas as to what to draw (when I ask him what I should draw, he responds “More color!”). Strangely, drawing the same things over and over have made me an even worse artist than I already was. I have started drawing shapes so now he knows most of them, although he gets hearts mixed up with triangles. Numbers and letters joined shapes this morning. I figure if we keep this up he’ll be ready for kindergarten by the end of the year.
We went back to bed at 6am and I got another blessed hour of sleep before getting up for the day at 7. Tomorrow I’ll probably work from home to take care of the little guy. I would appreciate any ideas you might have for things I could draw (keeping in mind that I am using broken crayons and have poor skills) or other ideas for keeping him entertained while I also try to work.
