The World is Quiet Here

...shhh. Both my babies are home sick. Plans out the window, blankets piled on, and a hardwood floor that is mocking me with its dirtiness. Why is it a sick day for a child means a work day turned to a play day, but exactly the opposite is true for a parent?

I had planned to make magnusmog and Frances happy with another Henry Rollins quote today, and even though my son's middle name is Henry, I don't think it would fit the mood here. So, while I kiss his tiny knuckles and smooth down my daughter's hair until this feeling bad has left them, I'll leave you with this:
“Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind.
"Pooh," he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw,
"I just wanted to be sure of you."”

Piglet and Pooh are just as wonderful as Henry Rollins:)

Yes, I agree with magnusmog. And they're much less frightening to the children.

I hope everyone is well soon!
