Kid creations

Having to stay home from school because you're sick is boring. Just ask Kendall.

On Monday morning, the first day back from Christmas break, she threw up before even having breakfast. And let me tell you, she was really upset about this because she has been anxiously awaiting getting back to school. She begged me to let her go anyway, but I wouldn't budge. "But staying home is boring, Mama!! Kayla will be worried and wonder where I am! Aren't you afraid I'll miss something important at school?!? I feel better! Really, I do!!!" Sorry, dice. You're staying home.

After the one and only time she threw up, she felt better. She spent a few hours on the couch watching movies until she just couldn't stand it anymore. She was bored with a capital B, so she and Noah tried to make the best of it and played the rest of the day. They played a little wii, read some books, played matchbox cars, and got out the Kid'nex to create these silly creatures...
I just love what their little minds come up with. After they made these guys, they acted out entire stories with them. It was way too cute. Kid'nex rule!!! They play with those things for hours!

And I'm happy to report that my Kendall-bug is feeling much better and so far (cross your fingers, please!) no one else in the house is feeling yucky!!!

Have a great day, peeps!

glad she's feeling better. I admire her persistence. Maybe it something she ate?

You know what I love about your kids . . . they never come across as the whiny "what do we do now? wha wha wha" type. They make good use of their resources and their imaginiations. Much credit to you, of coure~

Okay...where do you buy those things at? Did you really say HOURS? LOL!!

Those creations are awesome! Take pictures and scrapbook them. :)

Glad she's feeling better...she's got such a fighting spirit...nothing can keep her down! Rock on Kendall!!

Kate - not sure...just glad it's over quickly! And no, my kiddos usually aren't whiny, but they have their days too!

T - Love the new hair, you hot mama you!! And yes, I said hours. Get 'em at Target or Wal-mart or Meijer...places like that. They ROCK!

Sorry to hear Kendall was under the weather but good thing it seems like it was just a 24 hour bug. Those little creations are adorable!

Cool creations! I was just looking at some of those Kidnex things a couple of days ago at Walmart...but wasn't sure if they were really fun or not. Pooh-I should have bought them! They were 40% off because it was a special Christmas pack.
Anyway, very cute and glad Kendall is over her little "bug".
