I'm sick, fevery, lethargic and coughing so much that I can't even read to the kids. We do have a TV set, and I'm not opposed to popping in a video for short stretches of time, but I feel these poor kids are in front of it all day yesterday and today and it's showing in their behavior.
My guys are little; 6, nearly 5 and 1.
What do you Waldorf mammas do to keep some rhythm and sanity when you feel awful?
Major helps from DH even while he's at work....he ordered lunch delivered for us today , just had to add that in that bit, it made my day!
Videos, it's basically all I've got if I'm really sick or I will call a friend and have her take one of the kiddos because if I'm sick I can not get anything done! Forget rhythm, I just want to sleep or REST!
I do set up crafts and encourage messes, and do books on tape to occupy DD
I had an awful cold and cough a few weeks ago (still coughing!). I did my best to keep a basic rhythm, but that mainly consisted of keeping meal times the same and doing a drive for naptime each day. I think it's perfectly fine to scale way back when sick and just have time to rest for everyone. I had energy to sit and do playdough each day, so that helped.
