Taking it to the masses

Let's be honest. Zach and Amelia have enough toys to keep a whole day care centre full of kids entertained. I was at Toy'R'us on my day off on Friday. Admittedly adding to their toy collection. (It makes me happy!) Anyway, I chanced upon this aisle and was gobsmacked!

Wow! Do parents actually buy these for their kids? The 'golden arches' right in your home! There were fries, burgers, nuggets, etc. Almost everything you could find on the actual menu. There was even a drive through playset!

Now, that's one section of toys I hope never to find its way into my home. Well...I give enough business to Ronald MacDonald already!

Extraordinary Mondays - the kids

Despite not being altogether 100% yet, the kids have not been fussy or extra baby-ish. I'm pretty amazed that Amelia's leaky nose and Zach 3am coughing episodes don't seem to bother them at all. Here's proof that they are still full of bubbly goodness!

As for me, I'm just tired.

I can't wait to be rid of the feeling of not being 100% well. I can't wait to have a good night's sleep without being woken up by Zach's coughs. I can't wait till the day I'm not reaching for a tissue to wipe Amelia's nose.

Just checking in

I'm fine. But I'm finding that I am crashing into bed after the kids go to sleep. I've survived a bout of the cold but the kids are having round number two of it. Big bummer! Zach seems to be recovering really quickly this time around which is good but Amelia coughed pretty much all night last night. Poor thing.

Anyway, I'm just hanging in there until this cold front passes and the rain starts so it can warm up a little!!
