Today was another scorching day outside. There was wind, but it felt like a furnace blowing. It almost felt like the wind could burn your skin.
Of course this is nothing compared to the western states actually burning on fire, but still…it was very hot here.
The girls love to play outside in almost all kinds of weather, as long as it’s not pouring cold rain, but this weather for some reason irritates Rosie’s very mild asthma. She doesn’t have trouble breathing that she notices, though at the doctor the tests showed she is actually getting less oxygen. She just complains that her lungs and lower throat hurt really bad and she can’t take a deep enough breath to yawn. I have a feeling the lingering firework smoke isn’t helping matters. People have been setting off fireworks for hours every night for a week now.
Today there was a lot of whining and complaining. The stupid fireworks are keeping my kids up way too late at night, and they are trapped inside feeling bored. Rawr.
They were happy for a few hours today while watching the American Girl Felicity movie I got from the library. Rosie is really into American Girl stuff lately. I’ve been reading her the books in bed at night. Right now we’re reading through the Kirsten books. I think she’s my favorite. I also loved Felicity and Addie as a kid.
After the movie they played super heroes. Ada was Owl Girl and Rosie was Super Cat.
It was kind of funny. Ada is able to get all involved in imaginary games now, even though Rosie is still struggling with her dictator phase. Lord help us.
