Look what my creative kids brought me--breakfast in bed...with flair!!
I've been fighting off the crudly yuck I nursed Sage through last week. Finally Sunday morning I crashed and told the kids I needed to sleep in, take some Airborne, something for congestion, and a couple pieces of toast and stay in bed till our theatre date at 1pm. When I made my way into the kitchen to make a bit of toast and grab meds, my kids told me to go back to bed and they'd take care of me. Here's what they showed up with. I was super surprised and impressed.
This beautiful cinnamon butterfly beat the heck out of the toast I was going to make myself! (note the yellow decongestant tab in the center--camouflaged among a packet of Smarties).
Sage even shared her beloved, new Moshling, Scarlett O'Haira, figurine from ChiTAG! She's a prototype--not even available yet and a greatly prized gift from Betsy, Sr. Product Creative Manager for Mind Candy and the creative mastermind behind the mind blowing Moshling Dress that graced the runway at playCHIC. I felt soooo much better after that rockin' breakfast.

It was a crazy busy five days. Between writing full time and covering adult bands and theatre for ChiIL Live Shows and family fun for ChiIL Mama, I had a full plate. One of the best things about urban living is having too many options. Sometimes, though, it makes for a full schedule!
