Keeping Sane with Swine 'Flu

The Swine Flu has finally made it to our home. Miss Scarlett was diagnosed today with it. She is running a fever and has a nasty congested-sounding cough. All I can say is thank goodness and the Good Lord that she doesn't have the stomach problems that usually go along with the 'flu.

So, the problem is how to keep a sick five-year old entertained when she can't go anywhere. Here are some of our activities today:
  • Playing go Fish
  • Watching cartoons
  • Going to the doctor (ok, so this wasn't all that fun)
  • Taking a nap (fun for me!)
  • Farming on the virtual farm with Facebook
  • Reading books
  • Playing Crazy Eights
  • Making a fort in the den
We plan on piling up on the couch this evening to watch Dancing with the Stars. This is one of our family's favorite shows. Can't wait to see who Scarlett picks this season as her favorite.

Trying to make the best of a bad situation.

Poor Scarlett! I'm sorry she's sick. I hope & pray it doesn't become a nasty case of it. Is it mild so far? And I hope and pray you & husband don't catch it.

How long will she need to stay home from school? Wondering what other school districts are requiring.

You are all in my thoughts & prayers. BTW, your list of "keeping busy" items is a good one. If you need other ideas, has some great simple things to do with kids - crafts, etc.

Love, M.
