What to do with a Fever...

Today is the second day in a row Jensen has a fever and sore throat. Yesterday I gave him breakfast, hotcakes and bacon, his favorite and sent him back to bed. He slept for a long time, he must have needed the nap. Then later in the afternoon he appeared with the Lego car he created complete with multiple automatic weapons. Nice work.

I didn't think anything of it because I was busy working.

When Regan got home from school at 2:45 she reported that Jensen made a huge mess in the living room. Sure enough the Lego box was dumped out on a blanket and Lego structures were in various stages of construction everywhere.

After McKay finished school around 3:30 (she was a VERY hard working girl today) she joined the fun.

Today with fever still looming - More Legos are ready to be assembled.

Legos are one investment I am proud to have made -- everyone loves them including on occasion the vacuum cleaner. In the past, when I accidentally sucked up a barbie shoe -- I'd let it go. The Legos, on the other hand get fished out immediately.

You mean they're not going to be playing with all these Little People toys when they're 10? Oh Crap. Well built, Jensen. You have vision.

Wow! You're a much nicer mom than I am. Sick? You stay in bed, and I certainly don't make bacon and hotcakes on weekdays. If I find a stray Lego, it goes in the trash! I'm always stepping on those little pieces with my bare feet. Ouch!

Legos are the best. Never go out of style. When we go visit the relatives and there is nothing for the kids to do we always have Legos. I'll find my kids, the cousins, the dads the uncles and the grandpa all playing with them. Best toy ever!!!
