The Ultimate Sin

This afternoon I committed the ultimate parenting sin. I was starting a video for Lolly and pushed "continuous play". Oh yes I did. But, in my defense, desperate times call for desperate measures, people. It was Babs nap time, CG has a cold, I have a cold and I had woken up at 3 am to a tummy bug. And every half hour after that for about 3 hours. Then it was only every hour or so. And Lolly was BORED, I tell ya. I was in desperate need of a nap and she was in desperate need of something to watch, other than mommy taking a nap. Surprisingly, I really don't feel all that guilty about it. Just the need to confess to the internet.

We made up for our lack of parenting after dinner when we were playing with the many balloons that are in our home...until CG throws them out tonight. One last balloon fling. Here is a picture of CG and me from Lolly's perspective.

And one last thought to share with you for the upcoming week.

So far we're all still flu/cold bug free. . . knock on wood.

ROFL. You guys are funny. And I've done the continuous repeat, too, and completely understand. A mama's gotta do what a mama's gotta do.

Love the pictures. Are you sure those are balloons?

In one of the pictures you can't even see a difference. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing...

Bahaha! That's too funny. Balloons are a constant source of entertainment.

It is definitely a bigger sin to kill a child, so I think God will probably forgive you. I have done worse myself.
You guys are funny with the balloons!
