Welp, kids are sick again. Last winter we had tons of trouble with Patrick getting sick and really just never recovering - all winter long. I'm hoping we're not back in that phase (though it's already the end of February, so it would probably be a much shorter never-ending recovery), but he has been back to breathing treatments with his nebulizer. BLAAAAHHHH.

The point of this post was not to complain about my life, I know we're pretty dang blessed (can I use "dang" and "blessed" in the same sentence, or is that lame? too teenager-ish?) and really it's only Patrick who's terribly under the weather. The POINT is to ask what other people do with their kids when they're sick. We've read just about every book we own and watched every episode of Dinosaur Train on Netflix, we've done some coloring pages and worked on his writing skills, so..... now what? He's not very artsy-craftsy, and it's just sad to see him lay on the floor and look at his dinosaurs rather than play with them, so any ideas?

So sorry he is sick. I don't know what to tell you. I try to do for them what I want when I am sick. Sometimes I just try to sit and hold them. As a mom it seems like it is hard to stop and be there for the sick ones when you have 2 or 3 other kids. Sorry I really don't have any good ideas. Have you tried homemade play dough? He could make dinosaurs out of that.
