E has found herself with a lot of extra time on her hands these days. She’s at home with me and the baby and the baby takes up a lot of time so she’s had to fend for herself a lot. She’s pretty good at occupying her time, and this week her fascination has been Lego’s. This is due largely in part to the fact that we are completely out of scotch tape in the house and keep neglecting to pick some up when we’re out. She’s had a few play dates, but has found herself with a very high fever and sore throat these past few dates, so she’s homebound and has restricted access to her sister. Somehow we’ll survive this temporary period of confinement – I know I need to get out as much or more as she does.
