Wednesday we had a playdate to go to. Ingrid was pretty excited, but unusually crabby and whining at everything. We got to our friend's house, and Ingrid wanted to play outside. Once outside she wanted inside. She had food and when the dog came up to sniff she uncharacteristically started to cry. Another girl came up to see what she was eating, and again, she started to wail. What's up?
We did manage to have some fun though, before melting down. Heather put lots of balls in an old swimming pool--instant ball pit!
And of course my little piggy spied the donuts right away!
Today is the same, although Ingrid is feeling just better enough she wants to do stuff but still feeling crappy enough she's whiny. My favorite stage...We went on a walk and picked up some pretty red leaves that have started to pop up here and there on the trees. We tried to press them between wax paper but somehow I don't think my iron is hot enough? Or something, it just wouldn't work as easily as I remember it going when I was a kid. Now we're drinking hot cocoa and wearing our cozy pants and starting our weekend early. I don't like when she's sick, but it's actually kind of a nice slow change of pace!
