These days I spend a lot of my time with my favorite sidekick and usually we plan a routine to our days and we stick with it, but yesterday when Carys decided to sleep almost 2 hours late, and it was too chilly for our usual morning outside, I decided it would be a fun day to throw the routine out the window. We woke up late had a leisurely breakfast in our pj's cuddled on the couch and watched an episode of sesame street, had a dance party with her baby dolls, read stories, got dressed and went out for lunch, went home and had a 2.5 hour nap, woke up refreshed and went fall and winter clothing shopping in the late afternoon. We came home with a new coat, a halloween shirt, and mommy even splurged and bought her very first princess doll. I cherish days like yesterday hanging out with this sweet little girl who is quickly becoming one of my favorite hang out buddies. We finished the night with dinner out at a bona fide restuarant with daddy. Carys was so well behaved and yet we still had terrible service I just don't understand why families with young kids always get terrible service at restaurants but it has been the case everytime we've gone out to dinner as a family.
Today she's hanging out with her grandparents while mom and dad work, then we'll have our weekly family dinner at their house when we pick her up. Tomorrow we'll head out to church, head home for naps, and then I've planned a fun day of pumpkin decorating for CC. Our front porch has some lovely pumpkins that are just begging to be decorated by little toddler hands. We'll end the night at children's choir and have quiet time at home in the evenings. Just another weekend at the A house.
