Oh, I went from not feeling well to being completely out of commission in no time flat. The boys are still a bit under the weather, but definitely better than me - wow. You all know how hard it is to be sick when you have little kids who also need care and attention. Lucky for me, the boys are both so affectionate that they have happily sat or laid ON me a good portion of every day as we read their favorite books, made up stories, or watched a movie. They are getting a little antsy though too, after being cooped up sick since last week, so I have been trying to do some easy things with them a little bit at a time. We have had tea parties, painted, baked lemon pound cake, created big ramps to shoot little cars down, and pressed flowers...in between me wanting to just lie down on the floor and rest. :)
Last year we pressed flowers using a notebook and tissue paper which worked great. This time, we used a small child's flower press which we found at a local kids store.
Next week we will have pressed flowers which we will use for some sort of craft! Here is what we made last summer.
