Sebastian spends a lot of time at preschool these days and I've realized how much I miss having him at home. He got a fever on Sunday so we kept him home on Monday to make sure he didn't share his germs with his friends. Although he was still acting pretty lethargic he was in good spirits so I decided to break up the video watching day on the couch with the chance to cut up paper snowflakes.
I bought a pair of practice scissors last year when his hands were smaller but they weren't doing the trick. I tried not to hover but I think I frustrated him by trying to show him the right way to do it and he quickly told me he was done. Lesson learned: Don't interfere when he's enjoying himself.
All was not lost, however, for I had a bag of jingle bells and some pipe cleaners strewn across the table. While I was cutting up paper snowflakes he was threading bells onto a pipe cleaner. I secured the ends so they wouldn't fall off and asked him if I could show my friends what he'd made. He was okay with that.
Oh how I've missed this one at home.
S is finally feeling better but Ruby has had a fever on and off today. I'm hoping Brett and I can stay well and we can all enjoy a week of Christmas travels!
