Trevy and I woke up with stupid colds. How annoying. : )
On the other hand, I got to hang out on the couch all day and read... much of that time with my son reading at the other end.
Maddie was sitting happily (she is recovered from her cold) on the floor a couple feet away from us, busily making party hats.
After dozing off, I woke up to find that Madd had moved on to making masks.
Since she hasn't yet figured out to make holes in something, you pierce then cut around, her solution was to cut from the side to get to the eye holes, then just simply tape the sides back up. Brilliant. : )
She had tape, and yarn, and the stapler and markers out... all of her magic tools.
"I think she looks a lot like a chainsaw killer."
I laughed and sputtered until I was coughing, "That's what I was thinking, too," I said.
Her costume was next.
Our day went on much like that. Me reading. Trev started and finished his book.
Slow, slow, slow.
Lots of pbs - I think we saw all of our favorites - Martha, Arthur, Kratts, Word Girl, and Ruff...
We discussed lots of animals throughout the day, as well as their amazing feats...
When Trev finished his book he drifted to the den to his computer,
after a while I asked him what he was doing.
I figured he probably wasn't playing games, as the day's tempo was verra slow.
"Mmm, I'm just doing research."
"Oh. Whatcha researching?"
"Oh... lots of things. I just finished "Bad Reputation" (Toy Story song... known more via Joan Jett when I was a kid)... now I'm looking up Mothman. Remember when your internet friend sent that picture? That was cool. I'm looking that up, now."
I so love that he does this. It's one of the things that makes Trevelyn him. That he's curious about things, and wants to know when things were invented, or written, or when someone decided it was a cuss word. :) (It's true.) He just wants to know.
It doesn't matter what it is... it's his way of gaining knowledge and figuring stuff out.
And so went the day.
Drifting in and out..
here and there.
What today, I wonder?
