baking cakes

Both girls are still poorly.  My youngest was unable to sleep last night and wanted to be held for most of the night.  I don't mind because I know one day she won't want a Mummy cuddle at night, so I make the most of the precious time whilst they are small.  

She has wanted to be held for most of the day too, so I know she is unwell as she does not want to go explore.  I got them both wrapped up warm again and took them for a walk hoping that might help and that they could nap.  Unfortunately, this time it did not work.  So I came home and thought of other games to play.

We played row row your boat.  My daughters sit in my washing basket, as if it were a boat, as we have wooden floors the basket is very easy to push and the girls love pretending to be in a boat as we sing row row row your boat.  I put toys in the room too that we go look for, our favourite is the crocodile.

The afternoon we spent baking cakes.  Its a favourite thing for my eldest to do and so I knew it would take her mind away from her spots.

My youngest wanted to help too and she decided that she wanted to lick the spoon

 I am hoping tomorrow they start to feel better as I really would like to take then out whilst the weather is dry.

This day I love baking cakes
