The title of my post effectively explains what we have been up to for the last week. Not a whole heck of a lot, unless you count coughing, gargling salt water and laying around the house as exciting activities.

Apparently living with a toddler is like cohabitating with a germ sponge. The little sponge sops up every virus, bacteria and any other nasty thing you can think of by playing with other little germ sponges. Then you go home and give your own personal little germ sponge a good squeeze and without fail two days later you will be paying your dues to the kleenex company. They say it is a good idea to 'socialize' your kid and make sure that they hang out with other children- but let's be realistic here, at this age we are mostly building up their immune system while they minimally develop their social skills.

As a first-time parent I can say that being stuck at home with a sick child is pretty much on par with standing in line, having a bikini wax or doing taxes. All neccesary, but not super fun.

Here's to healthy times in your own house!
