One of the funny things about having a whole day off from Zoe was the realization that it doesn't take long at ALL to start really missing your kid. So often lately, I can swear to you that if I hear the word "Mommy" uttered one more time I might have to get permanent earplugs installed. I can tell you though, that when 5:30 rolled around and that little girl walked into my house and said "Mommy!!" it was just about the best sound any person could ever hope to hear. What a crazy job parenting is!
The night before I got sick, I decided to attempt a version of this puzzle from Pink and Green Mama. She had some old wooden blocks on hand, but I didn't, so I made my own blocks out of cereal and pasta boxes. It was fun to do, but unfortunately I didn't realize until I was almost done that it's WAY too hard for Zoe but oh well. Maybe we can find a use for it or maybe she'll like it when she's a little older.
