I LOVE 3 day weekends! We spent a lot of time together as a family and got a whole lot of fun in, even with a sick kid and a fever. We rallied and had a great weekend.
Saturday was rainy, but Maria had a friend coming over for a playdate. Unfortunately Maria wasn’t feeling well and I found her lying on her bed while Abby was playing with her toys at lunch time. She spiked a fever after a nap, so Chad and I cancelled the babysitter we had lined up and stayed home. After a 2nd nap, Maria’s temperature was back to normal and even ate a little before bedtime.
Sunday, Maria was feeling much better so we didn’t have to cancel our plans to have brunch with Chad’s parents and brother’s family and then to Teddy Bear Park. We had a great time, even though Maria and Charlie were probably the sweatiest kids there! After the park, while Charlie napped, I snuck out for a pedicure.
Today, we took the kids to a park, ate a picnic lunch there and then stopped for frozen yogurt. Yummm.. The afternoon we were starting to experience a crabby 5 year old and things were a little rough for a while. But after Charlie’s bath and Maria’s shower, we were calmed down enough, that I gave Maria a new piano book for her toy keyboard. She was so excited and I got a big hug! And she settled in to practice her piano with only a few interruptions from Charlie.
