Surgery update and "K" is for Kite

Last week my daughter got her tonsils out due to excessive step and soar throats.  Well, she is doing much better and resting.  She has been eating soft foods like this plate of mac and cheese I made for her.

And she has been drinking lots of Gatorade and Sprite to stay hydrated.  The nurse said flavored drinks are better than water after tonsil surgery to try to get as many calories as possible into her body.

Last week, we also continued to work on the Alphabet Boxes with my 4 year old.  We made kites for "K" using cardboard box, construction paper kite, paint and marbles.  My 7 year old also joined in on the art project helping her younger sister roll the painted marbles around to create a fun design on the kite.  Here are some pictures:

Your daughter looks on the mend! Glad to see her smiling face. I love the kite. Big sisters are great for helping with stuff like that.

Your daughter looks pretty cheerful. I hope she soon feels better and that the surgery will help her a lot.

I love the idea of marble painting. So much fun! My little girls would like that.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.
