Okay, this will be brief. But cut me some slack. A) I’m trying to keep up with my promise to myself to post more. B) Paige has been sick with a high fever since Sunday evening, and I’ve been stuck at home with 2 non-sleeping, coughing, grouchy girls since.
C) I’m tired. And maybe feeling a little lazy. AKA – I’d rather be shopping on MyHabit.com.
Also – spoiler alert to my friend, Kelly. This post features your daughter’s birthday card.
So, we are home today and it is the … what, second? third? day in a row the three Feldmann girls have been stuck inside with the sickies. Hand to God, I feel like my kids are sick more than they are healthy. They’d better be winning attendance awards when they get to Junior High.
Poor little Paigers has been running a fever since late Sunday afternoon, and last night it reached 104.6 degrees. Scary. Thank God we have a nurse in the family (I’m looking at you, Aunt EJ). Whom I may or may not have called in a panic. And interrupted a concert she was enjoying (ahem, which I was supposed to be at. I’m looking at you, Paige). And then I may or may not have cried.
Whatevs. I worry. It’s what I do.
So, Miss P seemed to have a little window today where she wanted to get up off the couch. In an effort to move both girls away from the television for a brief stint, I suggested she make a birthday card for her friend, Audrey. We have a present, but no card yet – what a perfect opportunity to be crafty and creative!
She disappeared, and I began Clorox wiping every surface she has touched recently. I assumed she went to the basement where we keep an art table and crayons/stickers. Sure enough, about 15 minutes later I heard her coming into the room, proudly proclaiming the card was done, and asking me to look at it.
Expecting a drawing on construction paper, I was a bit surprised to see her carrying my iPad. She sat down and patted the seat next to her, then showed me this:
And then she asked me to print it on the printer.
This? Is a birthday card she found and customized on the Nick Jr. Draw & Play* App I have on my iPad. She somehow found a specific birthday card, customized it, and saved the picture to my Photo Stream.
I am speechless. Which happens rarely. Almost never.
Who brought the genius????
Oh, wait. I did.
*I have no support from Nickelodeon. I wish I did, since they play a very important part of every day in my life as a homemaker. This App? Cost $4.99. And it was worth. every. penny. Keeps my girls busy forever. And by “forever,” I mean “longer than 5 minutes.”
