It was nice to wake up in my own bed! Vacations are fun, but I never sleep well, so I always enjoy that first night of sleep back home. I woke up feeling refreshed!
I spent way too much time fiddle farting on the computer this morning when I should have been getting ready for the playdate.
While I was in the shower my lovely assistant cleaned out my vanity drawer for me.
I made a fashion faux pas by wearing horizontal stripes, but I don’t really care. It’s not like I’m trying to pretend I’m skinny. I’m flaunting the roundess!
There was no time for hair styling, so into a ponytail it went after some air dry time. Oscar needed to go for a walk around the yard and get put up in his crate. The shoe fairy needed to visit and put all those shoes that were strewn around the hallway back into the closet. And the snack needed put out.
I served up some Monster Cookie Dough Dip with apples and graham crackers. I prefer the tartness of a Granny Smith, but I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, so I put out some Macintosh apples as well. (Note: Cupcake preferred to just pick out the M&Ms and chocolate chips from the dip.)
We started out inside, but the girls got a bit antsy.
When toddlers start banging on the fireplace instead of playing with all the fun toys and eating the delicious snacks that have been provided it’s time for a change of scenery.
The fresh air was nice. The only problem with this is we don’t have a fence and 2 year olds just can’t resist running off. Picture 5 pregnant mommas on the edge of their seats waiting to run after their child. Only 1 is supposed to be on bedrest, 1 is two days away from her due date, another is 2 weeks from her due date and that doesn’t leave many kid wranglers when they all go running. Somehow we managed.
Nap time craft time!!!! I spent Cupcake’s entire nap time down in the basement working on a sewing project and watching the last few episodes of Weeds (thanks, Netflix!).
Post nap I had a fussy britches, so we snuggled, read, watched some Curious George. Fussy britches did not want momma to cook dinner, so daddy got kitchen duty. Luckily it was easy dinner night. Pasta. He can handle that. Cupcake and I played with her new fun Nap Time Craft Time project (more to come later!).
I served up some salad with our pasta dinner. Cupcake preferred to just eat carrots from the salad. (This makes two nights in a row she only ate carrots for dinner. Yesterday’s were cooked. Today’s were raw. At least she’s eating vegetables, right?)
It was a gorgeous night so we spent a some family time outside. Apparently she didn’t get enough sand and water table time in earlier.
We also did some swinging, watered some flowers, played with rocks, and ran a few laps around the house.
Good night, Cupcake.
I had some Thirty-One business to take care of, which took a little longer than I expected.
So my plans to put a coat of paint on the night stand got put on the back burner.
Some Google Reader to catch up on (while enjoying deep, sleeping puppy breathing in my ear).
And my bed and my book were calling my name.
