So far, 2010 seems to be the year of mucus. Monkey has conjunctivitis, Duhdee’s new bestest friend is the humidifier and my new best friends are my ice packs. This morning I had to lay down with an ice pack for an hour or so and Monkey, very happily, joined me in the bed and requested his very own ice pack!
In between bouts of aches, pains and (I’m sorry) lots and lots of snot we’ve been slowly showing Monkey how to play various games on the Wii. He is an amazing bowler, a decent pitcher, a half-hearted batter and…we’ll regret this soon, I’m sure…a pretty decent boxer. He has beaten me at bowling more than once and I am way too competitive to throw a game…he whupped me fair and square. I heard him knock out Duhdee earlier but I suspect Duhdee allowed that to happen.
Duhdee just took a garbage bag full of tissues out and Monkey is right now shaking out his very own garbage bag and yelling “cool!”
Nothing we do these days goes unobserved or un-imitated! I need to figure out how to get this to work for me a bit better…maybe I should go demonstrate how to do laundry. Nah.
