We are not a family who gets sick very often. However, we've been sick lately. I've been battling a cough and cold for about 3 weeks. My kids have caught it in the last few days too, causing us to take a few "sick days" off of school.
My husband, who is a librarian at our local public library, reminded me that our library now has "hoopla." Hoopla is a digital library where you can check out music, videos and audiobooks. It's just like checking out a DVD or CD from the library except that you can do it from home. All you need is a library card and the internet.
So my kids recently have enjoyed watching some kid videos like Curious George and Veggietales while they've been sick on the couch.
Easy. Free. And we didn't have to leave the house. Perfect!
Thank you, hoopla and our local library, for making my life a little bit easier as I nurse my kids back to health!
