My birthday was last week and here are my two favorite presents:
First Son made me a BIG card. LarryBoy and Sumo wish me a happy birthday.
Kansas Dad stayed home from work (he didn't have any classes scheduled, of course) to start baby-proofing the living room. We now have a baby gate to keep Second Daughter from the kitchen and all the dressers, shelves and cabinets in the living room and kids' room have been anchored. We still need to address the table saw currently stored in the living room and the wires hanging tantalizingly down the back of the TV, but Second Daughter is partly contained in a semi-safe room. (The older kids are doing their best to ensure she still has an interesting environment complete with access to scissors, glue sticks and lots of Legos.)
A few days after my birthday I caught a horrible bug that kept me lying down for the better part of three days. Kansas Dad handled the household on his own and a fabulous job he did! I think it was in better shape while I was sick than when I'm well.
