While at home.


Lottie stayed home sick most all last week with one heck of a sinus cold.
After a warm bath I asked her what she wanted to do all day in between
blowing her nose and coughing.
She wanted to make paperdolls, so while I cleaned out a few kitchen
cupboards she created all the characters of The Little Mermaid, Sleeping Beauty,
Beauty and The Beast, and Moana.
After she was done, I cut them all out and then laminated them.

When I was a little girl and sick at home, I would play paperdolls in front
of the TV and watch shows like Oklahoma! and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.
My mom would bring me Sprite and popsicles and wait on me hand and foot.
In fact, I can't drink Sprite and eat a purple popsicle without thinking
about my mom.

I didn't have Sprite for Lottie, but I did have a laminator,
and I cut her fresh Arizona oranges slices whenever she wanted.
