Don’t go more than 10 ft from might explode!

I’m really not feeling good today. Massive amounts of phlegm, a headache, know the drill. I’m usually not a fan of naps or sitting still but today all I want to do is stay in bed. I’ve been trying to suck it up and clean, cook, and play with the kids but this cold, or whatever it is that I have, is exhausting me and I just want to rest.

I told the kids that I wanted to rest in my bedroom for a few minutes and my 11 year old grabbed the iPad and my 4 year old grabbed a banana and her LEGO’s and they both came in my room. Seriously? One in the bed with me and one on the floor. I knew I wasn’t going to be able rest like that so I came up with the idea of building a fort with the ironing board and a blanket. Yes, I had to set up a fort in order for the kids to play in in my bedroom quietly so I can rest. Now they are about 9 feet away from me quiet as mice with the ipad and Lego’s in their ironing board fort.

I think they are under the assumption that if they are more than 10 ft away from me at any given time, they might explode. I don’t know.

What do your kids do when you say you are going to rest? Do they follow you or find something to do by themselves?
