Parenting with Laryngitis?

Can it be done?

The answer is yes...though with a lot of difficulty!

I'm on Day 6 with laryngitis and I gotta say, it's not fun. Never mind the fact that I sound like I should be operating an adults only phone line; but, it's really difficult to get the kids to listen to me when I sound like a member of the Chipmunk family.

Thankfully, it seems as though only my voice has been affected by this virus. I feel fine otherwise which is good since I still have a plethora of tasks to do before Christmas this weekend.

So while I may sound like Alvin, Simon or Theodore I still have a household to run. Right now it involves a lot of gesturing to get my point across; but, I think we are all finally figuring it out.
Much like Cindy Brady asking Santa to give her mommy's voice back, I'm asking Santa to bring me mine.

In the interim I'm squeakily wishing you all a very Happy Holiday!
