Sick of Being Sick

So... Ethan and I have been laying around the house for the last two days. I am so tired, from the sleepless nights but also from being sick myself.

One thing we have been doing to get through the day is watching too much TV - those who know me know that Ethan only watches a few shows and not often. Although, being sick and unable to lift myself up for very long can be make it hard to keep an active toddler busy. During one part of the day Ethan used my body as his own train track yelling, "Whooowhoo!" with Thomas the Train and I just laid there and took it. I mean it was better than the screaming, crying, tired baby that he was at night. His asthma started up again and he has been having a hard time breathing.

Oh, by the way, our DVR fried and deleted all of our Signing Times with everything else (all my Jane Austen films GONE! Ahhh!) and so we have been watching Super Why (www.pbskids.org) and Bob the Builder. Signing Time is now off PBS and so we are a very sad family...

Another great show....I think it's on PBS is "Word World"......Ben loves it and it is highly educational!

I have watched that one but not Ethan. Super Why has helped Ethan start to do his phonic sounds and he is beginning to read! He and I play Wonder Red's rhyme games on the fridge with magnet letters. He is starting to read the words (eg: sun, bun, fun...) Amazing!
