Whew, it’s been a little heavy around here, no?? Well, in an effort to lighten things up a bit, I thought I would tell you all a little anecdote about my dear Charlie.
Awhile ago Mimi offered to keep C for the week prior to her birthday party – which actually works out perfectly because Divine Consign is the same weekend and I still have yet to tag all my items and bag them up for drop-off next Friday. I made the executive decision to spare myself a lot of stress and have her cake made instead of giving my baking skills another go. Good call.
So earlier today we were in her bedroom because I told her I needed to pack her bag and she promptly stomped past me and drug it out herself. She then filled it with all of her “friends” and practically sat on it to get it zipped. Sound familiar? I’ve had to do that a time or two.
When I told her I needed her bag for her actual clothes she stomped past me and drug out the two items she told me she was going to wear next week: her Emler Swim School t-shirt and a pair of too-small shorts. Then she told me that Vann and I aren’t allowed to sleep at Mimi’s – we are to drop her off and come back home, making sure we take Baby Ella with us.
Which then made me think that Vann was probably going to be thrilled to get an entire night’s sleep without a toddler showing up at his bedside at 2 am demanding to go potty.
Toddler Staycation @ Mimi’s house = Happy and Rested Daddy.
Hmm. This could work in my favor.
Especially because I really want these:
Do you think he’ll be THAT well-rested???
