I woke up wanting to get the heck out of the house for the morning. That doesn’t happen often, but when it does, get outta my way! I didn’t have a plan really, just wanted to do something…anything. Tony suggested we take the kids to Dave and Busters, and that was all it took. We packed up and went.
After spending way too much money there we went to Chevy’s for lunch. And, after all that craziness, I couldn’t wait to get back home. So much for wanting to get out and do something…it’s just way too much work! :)
We ended up getting home too late for Harper to take a nap, but Koko passed out in the car on the way home. While she napped we (Harps, Tony and I) had some quiet time up on my bed; it was nice. Once she woke up, she was ready to play.
She loves to sit in front of the dresser and pull out the drawers.
Harper was playing a new game on the iPad and wasn’t ready to get up and get going yet.
After pulling the drawers out a few times, Koko got a ride in the laundry basket.
It wasn’t too long that she was awake before she started to get fussy again. Her nap hadn’t been long enough so she needed just one more little snooze to help her get through the afternoon.
While I was upstairs rocking Kota to sleep, Zoe was downstairs preparing to head back to school. She was just walking out to her car when I came down the steps.
I’m really going to miss her being here. I’ll miss her helping out with the babies. I’ll miss her helping out around the house. But, what I’ll miss most of all, is just having her around to talk to. There was one day that the babies were napping, Tony was at work and Landon at school and we just spent the entire hour and a half talking. Not about anything major, just life stuff. It’s nice to not always have to be the “mom” even when I’m the mom. It’s nice to chat like we’re friends sometimes…the way I talk with my mom.
Well, that sums up the day for us. Hoping to have a little fun with Landon this week since it’s now his turn for Spring break!
