Day 6: Childhood

I was all set to take the boys over to my mom's house (the house I grew up) this afternoon as I had a grand plan for this assignment. However, after naps, snacks and an episode of Wild Kratts, we simply couldn't fit it in before dinner. Oh well, maybe I will be able to sneak it in somewhere in this challenge. I then remembered that I had taken this picture of Owen recently and it definitely reminds me of my childhood.

Childhood Memory: When my mother would make me a nice, comfy space on the couch where I could rest and recuperate when I was sick, we called this a sick bed. As I have talked about this a few times before, I now do this for my own children.

Owen has not been feeling well (not well at all) since Friday. We concluded today while at the doctor that he has had Croup, but I am happy to say that he has been on the mend all day today.  Thank goodness because that Croup is scary stuff in the middle of the night.

Sick Bed Definition...........
A nice, warm, comfy place complete with your favorite stuffed animal, your pillow and blanket, a few books and cool washcloth for your head! This happened to be the couch because you needed to be within sight and earshot of Momma and the kitchen for blowing kisses and reassurance that you would be fine! Jumping on the couch were the sign that all was on the mend!
