Two words: cabin fever. Look it up on wikipedia and you will find:
"Symptoms include restlessness, irritability, forgetfulness, laughter, and excessive sleeping, distrust of anyone they are with, and an urge to go outside even in the (less miserable) rain, snow or dark"
Yep, we all have had a bit of the fever around here lately. Restlessness...yep. Irritable...um, a little. Forgetful...always. Laughter...often. Excessive sleeping...definitely NOT. Distrust of others...hmmm. Going outside in bad weather just to get the heck out of the house...yep!
However, in the midst of all of this, something really sweet has been happening...the two munchkins have started becoming best buds. I hope it's not temporary. I love seeing them hug over and over again, running circles around the house, playing choo-choos together. Someone asked Maggie this week if Joe was her brother or her boyfriend and she answered "boyfriend". She's also informed me today "Mommy, you are NOT my best friend, Joe is my best friend!" For the past few months, she's been telling us over and over again what she likes and doesn't like...all of a sudden she's started telling us what Joe likes and doesn't like. Joe is usually the one that initiates all of the hugs and he calls Maggie "Melmo" or something like that. It is cute and it warms my heart.
This week looks promising weather-wise. Still cold but sunny. We can handle that! Just don't say the "S" word!
