Spiders and Yellow Envelopes

For the past week and a half, my family has been ill. Not all at once, but one at a time. First Bella, then Danny, then Declan, then Bella again… and just when I thought I was going to bypass the flu, it hit me. Thankfully, I have a super duper husband who stayed home and helped me all but one day. He washed dishes, cooked, changed diapers, cleaned, did laundry… He did everything that I would do in a day and then some!

Even when feeling unwell, Bella is funny.

“Do you like to eat yellow envelopes?” she asked at supper one evening.

“Yellow envelopes?” Danny and I queried.

“Yes, yellow envelopes.”

After a few go-arounds, she clarified: “They’re kinda like watermelons.”

“Ooooh! Yellow cantaloupes!”

“Yes. Yellow cantaloupes!” She acted like she didn’t say it wrong for the past ten times. 🙂

We also have new artwork showing up. Her fine motor skills have improved drastically, and she’s constantly drawing chicken houses, spiders, and monkeys.

"I just drew a spider with legs, and eyes, and a smiley face, and a tongue." (Description by Bella.)


This chicken house has a door knob (no door), a window, a roof, and a... chimney (?) on top. Fancy living for these chickens!
Poor monkey. Six legs, no arms, crazy hair... at least he's smiling!
