Finally on the mend after a nasty bout of 'flu... We've spent a great deal of time migrating from bed to couch and back again, but I'm suddenly struck with a fit of cabin fever that I think the baby shares. It's a dull week when all you've done is lie about hacking and sicking up, with the added bonus of watching (the same) movies repeatedly in between bouts. (You try arguing with a two year old over the merits of NOT watching Monsters Inc. for the fifteenth time in succession when you're ill.) I don't know if I can persuade Mooch to sit still long enough to participate in story hour down at the library on Tuesday, but I'm almost willing to give it a try if only to get out of the apartment for a bit.

Life progresses as usual otherwise... The fish continue to be a source of amusement; Mooch has shown a certain affinity for toothpaste as an art medium, particularly on upholstery and wood; we're having stuffed peppers for lunch tomorrow; and despite my day to day busy-ness I'm feeling dreadfully bored. It's just February wearing on me, I know, but the sheer greyness of the month permeates the soul. I have the oddest feeling that I'm waiting for something, but I can't pinpoint what it is.

I hope all of you are well and making the best of your February, and I'll post again when I've something a bit more interesting to discuss.

As soon as you are feeling better, may I suggest a visit up here? Admittedly, it's still February, but we do have kung-fu films and Chinese food. :)

She is also in possession of a rather nice aura of awesomeness! And from personal experiences I find awesomeness to be a great deterrent of flu-flareups!

tell us, how many of the little fishys made it? maybe you should save some of her dental creations, crazier forms have made lots of money, and surely she'll get lots of publicity for being so young, people eat that kind of stuff up :D

That's not a bad idea...Especially if you can find one that looks like Jesus. If you can manage that, sell it under the title "child creates Toothpaste Jesus through divine inspiration."

You're guaranteed success!

We are currently in possession of two adult fish and three little ones, who appear to be thriving.

I would try and save the kiddo's masterpieces, but then I would have nowhere in the apartment to sit. It is a bit of a poser.
