This is what happens when you’re so sleep deprived that you put bleach in your dark laundry to kill pinkeye germs. Oops. Our family has been sick for the past two weeks, and I guess I should be glad that our winter sheets were the only thing I ruined with bleach this time around.
We’re still picking up the pieces around here. We’ve finally been well enough to go out the last couple of days, but we’re all exhausted and have been watching way too much Olympics coverage. (My kids love having an Olympic junkie for a mom–suddenly the TV is on during the day! for hours at a stretch! day after day!) There is no connection between that and the links that follow–they’re just interesting things I’ve read recently.
Did you see this article on the value of play? This sort of thing is right up my alley (and why my kids spend the majority of their day in unorganized free play).
Anna’s thoughts about facebook this week reminded me of an article I read last month on Five Questions to Ask Before Posting to Social Media. I was especially convicted by the point that not every special moment with my kids needs to be shared with everyone in my social networks.
If you’re having a rough day, check out this post on When Mothering is Hard and No One Sees. How much of our daily work is seen only by the Lord?
Happy Valentine’s Day! Have a happy and healthy weekend!
