Sheila,this is a great idea! Thanks for the resource! I'm sure a lot of fibro mommies will get use out of this.

That is brilliant! I thought I'd take a look for "when" I have children; now I'm thinking I can adapt for when I have surprise visits from family who think I'm magically better all of a sudden.

Fantasitic idea, Sheila! I may use some of these with the great grandson! The little cars always work with him!

Hope that you are having a good day!

There's some good ideas here. I had olivia , my god-daughter last week (she's 3 1/2). And I laid on her bed while she played with her kitchen and served me tea and cake. Then she covered me up with four, yes four of her blankets and she pretended to be the mommy. It took all I could do to keep from laughing.

I love this link. Tonight and most days lately this is what my son and I do… Netflix is my best friend.
