I think I had a bit of cabin fever from being in the house for 4 days looking after my lil’ sicky. It’s strange to see a normally active child laid out for days on the couch and totally lethargic. After playing all her board games, doing all her puzzles, reading a ton of books, watching a little TV, coloring, doing activity books etc we were both getting a little bored. We decided it was time to do some crafts. If you follow freebingo on Facebook I posted a picture of our creation-Aliens! Our creation was inspired by one of my fave slot games Area 51. Love the graphics in that hall!
We had a bunch of paper plates leftover from a party. I used a couple of those and stapled them together to make spaceships and used a plastic cup as a body, a balloon as a head and plastic cutlery for arms. My daughter decorated the space ships and alien faces. I thought she would make them scary or at least a little alien-like but she decorated them pretty. She is a girl after all and wants everything purple and pink. Here is a picture for those of you who haven’t seen it yet. Pretty cute huh?
When kids are sick it almost seems inevitable that the parents will get sick too. To prevent that from happening I usually have a go-to soup that is sure to kill any bugs that may try to sneak up on you. It also gives you pretty bad breath but what do you expect-it’s garlic, ginger, and onions. Even if you are already sick it makes you feel like curling up in a ball and having a nap; when you awake you will probably feel the best you have all day with the exception of the bad breath. lol.
Flu Fighter soup
1/2 inch piece of ginger, chopped into small pieces
1 clove of garlic, pressed
Mug of hot water
1 tbsp miso paste
1 green onion, chopped
Steep the garlic and ginger in a mug for 3-4 minutes. Meanwhile mix the miso paste with a little water to smooth it out. Pour in the miso and add green onion. Drink up! (recipe from Ripe Around here cookbook)
Trust me if this doesn’t kill the bug your breath sure will! Haha.
Until next time my bingo buddies….
