Today my son was sick. He was also utterly bored out of his mind because I wouldn't let him run around outside.
"Mom, there's nothing to do! I'm bored!"
Just then I spied a piece of paper. "Well then, let's make paper airplanes and race them."
So that's what we did. We flew those things all over. The dog went nuts, trying to get at them too.
"Mom, this is the best sick day ever!"
It's amazing what a piece of paper and a little creativity can do!
