It started on Monday. It was a little scratch in my throat. I fought it and fought it until I couldn’t fight it anymore.
By Tuesday night, I was not feeling good anymore. I was tired and my throat was painful.
I tried to just work through it all. I tried to still be the normal mommy, but it hurt to even talk.
By 9 o’clock, I decided to just call it a night.
God bless Hubby for trying his best to keep M from bothering me in our bedroom. He tried to keep the bedroom door closed, but she knows how to open doors now.
She probably isn’t used to seeing me sleeping so early. She probably isn’t used to me trying to keep my distance from her too. She was all about snuggling up to me. I did my best to turn my head away from her so I wouldn’t breathe on her.
It was sad. I had to explain to her that I wasn’t feeling too well and that I didn’t want her to get sick either. I think she understood. She would say, “Mimi, sick.”
Thankfully, Hubby was able to keep her busy and I was able to get some rest. I woke up this morning much more refreshed. My throat doesn’t hurt as much anymore, but it’s still not 100% better.
I’m hoping that I can get one more good night’s rest tonight. It seems to be working.
I just hope M doesn’t catch it.
M loves to sing.
As children, my brother and I had a microphone stand that we loved to use. We used to get together with our cousins and have little concerts using the microphone.
Naturally, because M loves singing, she had to had one too. My mother took to Amazon to find the perfect microphone.
This is great.
This is a stand-alone microphone that can get pretty tall. It will definitely grow with M for several years.
At the base, there are four buttons that are sounds of applause, cheers, and some percussion. There is also disco ball lighting that M loves.
The microphone is pretty loud. The quality of the sound is decent, but it’s a children’s toy, so I didn’t expect super clarity. There is also a bit of feedback that occurs if the microphone is tilted down or too close to the speakers.
M LOVES this.. she totally jams out to her My Little Pony songs. She’ll sing her favorite Strawberry Shortcake songs.
I’ve been known to belt out a little “Let It Go” from Frozen with this microphone too!

Happy Easter! Christ is risen!
I’ll be enjoying the day with my family and hope to have a great Easter update some time this week!
Have a blessed holiday!
I love Gymboree. M loves Gymboree.
She loves the freedom of being able to climb, slide, jump and run around an indoor playground that changes it’s set up every week!
I love that everything is padded. I love that M has learned so many physical movements and has perfected many physical skills though exploring the play area.
I love Gymboree and all the activities associated with it.
Now M thinks she can climb, slide, jump and run around EVERYWHERE!
She must absolutely think that our apartment is just an extension of her Gymboree playground.
It’s nerve wracking!
She used to be a huge ball of energy before she started Gymboree classes, but she wasn’t as brave as she is now to get more physical with her surroundings. She ran around a lot before, but she didn’t jump off of things like she does now!
She jumps off the couch. She pust a pillow on the floor to jump on and calsl it her ‘trampoline.’ She jumps on the bed. She tries to jump from our big bed to her toddler bed.
She climbs everything.
She runs around EVERYWHERE…
Did anyone else go through this when they enrolled their child in Gymboree??
