Today has been one of those days. I woke up at 6am to do some housework, even though I wasn't babysitting any little ones today. Amelia was up around 6:30. I got showered and ready to begin our day. Amelia and I haven't had a weekday with no little ones for a while now so I had a lot of things on the agenda. I know my daughter is awesome, but this morning proved that she knows her Mama all too well. We were sitting on the couch and she said "We a go to Starbucks if you want Mama, cause you're a good Mama"... so we went. I really think she just wanted a cake pop, but putting it out there as if she is only thinking of me is beyond sweet.
I have been promising Amelia that I would take her to story time at the library so we headed there this morning. We went to the toddler story time and I am definitely going to try and get her to the preschool one instead. She had fun but I think she would enjoy going with a little more advanced books and other kids her age. I didn't know what the exact schedule was, only that they do it at 10:15, so we just went for it this morning.
Ready to go to one of her favorite places... the library
She picked up four books to read and started right in the second we got home.
A cold has been creeping up on me for a couple of weeks now, and last night it decided to fully hit me. I am so congested with a crazy runny nose and watering eyes. Thankfully my family and I don't get sick often, generally only once or twice per year, so I can't complain too much. It just sucks feeling a bit under the weather. I even passed up an opportunity to take Amelia to ballet, which is just plain unusual. Needless to say, I didn't get everything on the agenda done today. We do have an auction to go to tonight that is put on by my old office. The money is all donated to the local food bank. It is a great event and always a fun time.
Here are a few pictures of my girl from today...
Look how long her ponytail is getting
She looks so cute when her bangs are cut short
Hahaha, I love how voluminous her hair looks here. Silly girl.
Ready for ballet! Love her
Well, I better get up and ready to head to the auction. Have a great evening all.
