when your child is sick, but begging to do something different than lounge around the house all day, you get creative.  so today, we had an indoor picnic.  which ended the way you would expect an indoor picnic with a nine month old to end...water emptied onto the floor, watermelon pieces everywhere, and bits of salad strewn across your lap.  sometimes you have to stop caring about the mess and just have fun.  being with this kid makes everything in life a million times more entertaining.
