heathrowga: (Skull and crossbones)
Last night, I was so sick. When I woke up this morning, I knew I had to get in to get a verification that my sinuses were infected.  I also knew there was no way I could handle two kids by myself. Tom took a personal day and wrangled the wee ones while I luxuriated in a solo trip.

Unsurprisingly, I have a sinus infection. I have a nasty tasting antibiotic, but hopes this will clear up rapidly. The doctor encouraged me to keep using the neti pot, and to come in earlier in the sinus infection life cycle.

Today, I want to wrap holiday gifts to be shipped and beg Tom to deliver them to the post office. I'm done with shopping except for Tom (Christmas and birthday). Luckily, I can get most of his wishlist off of Newegg.com and thinkgeek.com. :)

My daughters love to imitate me and "cook" throughout the day. They abscond with my oven mitts on a regular basis. They have a play kitchen which they use all of the time.

I had the idea of giving each girl personalized kitchen things as stocking stuffers for Christmas. I found plain child-sized aprons at Joanns, and I will write their names and put iron on patches to decorate the aprons. I'll look around for inexpensive pot holders and maybe find wee chef toques to complete the look
So far, so good, right?

Then I started over-thinking the situation. Is this too girly of a gift? Am I telling them that they must cook?  Since I'm already a SAHM, am I not sending them an empowered enough message?  Am I conditioning them that a daddy goes out to work, while mommy stays home cleaning, cooking, and crafting?

I fear I have taken too many criticism and women studies classes. :)
