Alex is sick today. She has a fever, sore throat, ear aches, and a headache. She actually felt bad yesterday, but her fever didn't show up until the evening. So, I set up the sick bed for her on the couch for when she wakes up.
Here are some of the things we do on sick days:
...lay on the couch and stay in PJs all day
...watch LOTS of TV (we just got 2 movies in from Netflix, so that'll will be an added bonus!)
...I get out a TV tray and load it with anything she needs... thermometer, tissues, drinks, etc
...drink Sprite (she rarely gets soda at home) with a bendy straw (also drinks Gatorade and clear juices)
...have popsicles anytime she wants
...have "homemade" chicken noodle soup or Ramen noodles for lunch or dinner - depending on when she's up to eating
...we have a special pink tray to eat on the couch with or a wooden one with legs if someone is sick and can't leave the bed
...play board games & card games
...play computer (or DS) games - we'll probably play some on Webkinz World today - I have my own account (I have 3 Webkinz which Alex gave me... they're so cute!) and we can play in the "competition arena" against each other
It's 9:15 and I hear her waking up, so I'm off to see if she's ready to come to her Sick Bed! I'd love to hear what you do special for your kids when they're sick!
