Laughter is the Best Medicine
I always love it when I have the opportunity to link up to Little Loves, a linky where you get to share some fantastic moments from your week. I’m not going to lie, September has been a difficult month health wise and it’s been really hard to do much more than sleep, write a daily blog post and spend a few hours in the evening with Sylvia.
However we have adapted and whilst most things have been done at the bedside we have had fun together and lots of laughter and I have a lot to write about. I hope you enjoy.
Some do and some don’t but I have a guilty pleasure which is X-factor. I love watching the show. I’m not that much into the music. I think it’s more the psychology of the show, how people act, behave and react. I love reality TV and think it’s because I get to see the way people interact with one another. I find that fascinating!
Sylvia has been watching her favourite movie over and over again. Barbie and the Diamond Castle. I must admit, it has a brilliant storyline, and my daughter loves it, but I love it too! I had no idea when we first watched this how good the story would be!
This week I wore a lovely pair of Owl Socks to the Hospital. A few years ago I bought a load of cute socks and as I’ve spent a lot of time at home they are all in fab condition. Do you like them? I love them!
Sylvia got some new ballet and dance shoes this week and was so excited to share with me when she returned home from ballet class.
Well apart from hearing Sylvia sing her favourite Frozen songs and the songs from Barbie and the Diamond Castle over and over, I have enjoyed listening to my daughter laugh. We have played a few games on the bedside and Sylvia has been so happy and had so much fun.
Here is a quick video about the Happy Feet Game we played which ended up going terribly wrong and turned into a blooper. Please do take a peak!
We have also been listening to the three times tables in “music form” on the Ipad. It is really helping Sylvy to learn her Times tables. She watches things at school and then comes home and we google it and watch it again. I think it’s brilliant as it’s a great way to reinforce the learning at school.
On Monday we had family night and Sylvia did some painting. She painted a plastic bottle yellow and blue and made her very own money box minion. We cut a slit in the back and Sylvia will use it to save money as and when she earns it. She always has her eye on a new toy she would love and I decided it would be great to help her practice saving for the things she wants.
John and I are in the process of building a Dolls house for Sylvia. This is no easy task. I worked out the measurements and he is going to be cutting the pieces out on Saturday with his friend. It’s quite exciting as the dolls house will be an American size dolls house. I can’t wait for it to be built.
I am going to work on some little pieces for the inside and get my friend to help me sew some blankets and curtains out of material scraps. How exciting our first huge project! I’m thinking of creating the pieces to give her for christmas, it will help save money on buying other toys when we are on a tight money and trying to save for medical costs.
I’m just a tad excited and will be ringing the carpet shop this week to see if they have any free scraps.
Thanks for reading,
