Today was a Mommy day.
We call it that because Bailey is very concerned with routine and every night she asks “what tomorrow is?”
And she remembers.
She does well with change, but she also really likes to just KNOW what’s going on.
So today was a Mommy day as opposed to a school day or a Grandma day or a GoGo day.
The day started off rough, at 8am, when I had to call AAA to come unlock my car that C locked with my keys inside… but once we got past that it was pretty smooth sailing.
We hit the grocery store, headed home, put groceries away, changed laundry, put laundry away, played “doctor” which was great b/c it meant I got to lay down and have “surgery” for about 30 minutes (which helped my massive headache a bit) and then it was lunch and naps.
Of course the girls decided not to nap today and everyone was up by 2pm.
Which meant I had 3 hours to kill until dinner.
So we played blocks.
We built a fort.
The girls and I laughed as Grayson tried desperately to get up on a stool (it’s the little things!).
And we watched him get really frustrated!
And almost fall.
And eventually give up. It was SO funny!
Then we hit the trampoline.
I caught Parker in one of her alone moments, which are rare, but I’m so glad I caught it b/c she is becoming more kid than toddler. And she loves to draw. Which of course I adore about her!
And then right before dinner I copied an idea my mom had and gave the girls a scavenger hunt. First I colored pictures of what I wanted them to find, cut them out and gave them the pile and a basket.
Bailey took charge and led Parker going outside and inside and back out to find everything! They had a blast and I got dinner ready while they were busy!
They found everything!
It was a great afternoon. A few emails tossed in, a drop-in by GoGo and Daddy getting home early made this day officially PERFECT!
