Feltie funsies

I have been trying my hand at making felt ornaments and magnets. I’ve been having some problems with panic attacks and ruminating on stuff, so I needed to do something that didn’t involve faffing about on Facebook or other online stuff.

The onset of the sickies — yes, that’s the technical term — is ground zero for responsible parenting. And that’s where a select few are messing it up for the rest of us.

That’s where the BIG mistake comes in.

The responsible parenting in question can be condensed down to this: if your children are sick, they belong at home where they can rest and recuperate. That’s it. Yes, they may require medical attention, fever-reducers and prescriptions, cool liquids and hot soups, but really, it’s all implied in that one directive: stay home.
