Grumpy Scissors Day

What a wonderful day! Though Hailey has been a bit grumpy! Lauren woke up with a very low fever that faded as the morning went on and she is feeling great! We started the day with showers, sheets and laundry. Aired out the bedrooms, cleaned the bathroom and wiped down all that Lauren has touched (because I am a germaphobe through and through) - then we started a little craft at the kitchen table.

The goal was to let Hailey use the much coveted scissors and yet have something to show for their efforts. So we cut big strips of green paper. Then the girls just had to "snip" them into confetti size pieces to glue onto Shamrocks for St. Patricks day.

Well...Hailey tried:
and tried -

And when all else fails: RIP IT!

Regardless they both had fun - They glued and giggled most of the time! Then they left the table and mom got to clean up. Yeah Me!

After the craft was done and on the counter to dry - we spent the next 45 minutes listening to Hailey ask, and beg, plead to be taken to the park. So eventually we went! Off to the park for us. THE PARK? Wait...Wasn't Lauren just sick. SHHHH. Don't tell her teacher - it turns out she is just playing hooky today. The fever is in fact gone and well, she felt like she was on top of the world - They climbed climby things, slid down slides, played a little in the sand. Hailey even came down the fireman's post (several times in a row - she is strong!) Lauren did the monkey bars high and low and had a blast. We stayed about 45 minutes. I think they had a great time.

Ok, enough is enough for today.
