It was color week at preschool. Cupcake insisted that everyone wear the color of the day, even if they weren’t attending preschool. Yesterday was green day. She only has one green shirt, so both the girls had to wear their dinosaur shirts. After breakfast and some shoe drama the girls were dressed and we were off to school.
After dropping Cupcake off, Pumpkin and I headed to the park for a quick run before Stroller Strength. We did some Tabata and some arm work during class and Pumpkin was not happy about being in the stroller! After class we played on the playground until it was time to head back to pick up Cupcake.
I fed Pumpkin some lunch in the car, which I think needs to be made a daily occurrence. She just can’t seem to stay awake while we wait. I was able to transfer her to her crib and Cupcake and I got settled in, unpacked, and ate our lunch.
After lunch Cupcake and I ordered some Road I.D.’s. One for me and one for each of the girls. After the Well Armed Woman speaker at our Moms Run This Town meeting, safety has been on my mind. Getting a Road I.D. was one way to make me feel safer when I’m out on a run. And for the girls? I think they’ll give me a piece of mind when I’m trying to keep track of two girls in a crowded place by myself. The bands come in XS so they’re perfect for kids. Cupcake and I even had a talk about what to do if she becomes separated from mommy (find another mom, police officer or fireman and show them her bracelet).

Cupcake watched an episode of Dinosaur Train and I got a little work done in the sewing room. I gotta get cracking on that 18 yards of flannel I bought.
Actually I’ve been working on the flannel a little bit per day. I have the serger discard pile to prove it.
I left the girls to play together and set out to work on baby shower favors.
That lasted all of 5 minutes before the girls decided they needed to help, too. Pumpkin through my tulle circles all over the room. Cupcake was helpful. Pumpkin tried to mimic her and the result was Oscar snatching a flower bulb and running away. Never a dull moment.
Hubby came home which was a good distraction, so I was able to finish those up. And then I put him to work!
Earlier in the week our oven died. At first I was disappointed because I was trying to bake bread and the oven just wasn’t heating up. And then I was excited because I’ve been waiting for the oven to die so I could get a new one! And then we realized it was just the lower heating element that wasn’t working (and had visible damage) so we ordered a $30 part. And while it made sense to clean the oven once the dead heating element was removed I didn’t want to waste my time if replacing it didn’t fix the problem. So hubby put the new one in the dirty oven (it was a long arm job) and it worked. No new oven for me.
And per Cupcake’s request an after dinner bike ride.
It was such a nice night, so we played outside after our walk.
Before we knew it bedtime for the girls had arrived.
And then it was cleaning time for mom and dad. And I totally should have painted my toe nails. But I watched an episode of Revenge, played on Pinterest and went to bed
early at a reasonable hour.
Aside from a few tantrums from a grumpy 4 year old it was a great day! And I hope to have another great day today (with a few less tantrums!).
Do you have big weekend plans? I have a double date on the agenda. Well, sort of. Me and two husbands. One is mine. The other is not.
p.s. Megan, if you’re reading this, Happy birthday!!!
