Lotsa cuddles this week. . .

Nidhi has been home since Tuesday and will be home from school for the rest of the week. A teeny bit of fever, some sniffles and needing lots and lots of cuddles. And naps. She almost always wants me to lie down with her for naps when she's not feeling too great. So you see, that is why mommy's productivity = zero. And it's okay, I love naps! Morning naps, afternoon naps, tea/coffee break naps - you name it. LOL.

And oh, we're having Nigella (she adores Nigella, btw!) on repeat on the dvr. And Spongebob Squarepants. And iCarly. Nice :) She now wants me to make some Chocohotopots. Yummm...

Let's just let me share a layout with you first :) A simple one. Who says you have to re-invent the creative process everytime? It's perfectly okay to do simple in my book.

how about that

:) She will say things like.. "ah! I know! Let's go swimming then we can have pizza on the way back home, how about that?" or " Bring me to the park daddy, that way I'll be able to play while you jog around the area! How about that?" LOL..

Nothing to explain about this layout, really. It's pretty much straightforward, let me know if you have any question though :)

I'm going out to fetch Neha from school. She has been an amazing big sister, bringing home homeworks for Nidhi, sending it back the next day. She is also helping me around the house, more than before. She is just awesome, that girl. I'll leave you with two photos of her, both with some kind of animal. LOL. She *hearts* them. Me? Animals? Umm, not so much :) *grins*

So sorry to read that you are in the same boat as I, there is nothing worse than a sick kid, I always tell God to please give me what ever they have so that they do not have to suffer but alas he does not hear me :O
Your layout, though simple it is still beautiful and it captures what you had to say so perfectly.
From the looks of it you are raising fine young ladies, the world needs as many wonderful people as it can get so hats off to you my firend!
Hope you are doing well my dear.
BIG hugs!

Brave little girl you got there! The photos are gorgeous! I hope Nidhi gets better! I loved the layout, simple is good, especially the way you do it! How about that? Lol! I'm gonna have that stuck in my head! Have a great day and take an extra little snooze for me! Once I get off here I have to clean my behind off!!!

You did NOT just make me look at that snake... :-(

Hope Nidhi feels better soon. It's never fun to be sick, but somehow it seems even worse in the summer.

♥ that LO and the photos of Neha with the animals are adorable... even if there was a snake on there... :-)

Have a great weekend, Sasha! :-)
