It started with Computer Girl, then the Lil' Chef and last but not least Alpha Boy. Alpha Boy seemed to have it the worst. He had a fever for a few days and slept thru the day for two days in a row. My little alpha Boy was really sick!
With Alpha boy laid out on the couch I felt really bad for him. Then it hit me, a Sick Basket!! I took an empty container and filled it with things that I thought he would enjoy having on the couch with him and hopefully cheer him up. I put a bunch of books in there along with his Leapster & cartridges, his water bottle, a puzzle, a Rescue Hero, a small Superman, pen and paper and a BELL!
I think my little basket turned out great, except for the BELL. Good night, what was I thinking! I mean really, what mother in her right mind gives a bored little boy, that is laid out on the couch, with nothing better to do a BELL?!!
I do believe the little Sick Basket cheered him up : )
I even put new batteries in the Leapster for my boy.
See what I'm saying. You can't hear it, but trust me, that bell was a ringin!
Do you have anything special that you do for a child with the sickies?
