Challenge Day accepted, Emma. Your planning err’thing auntie had a run for her money today thanks to you. But contrary to popular belief, I can go with the flow when situations occur.
We met my friend Alicia at the Holiday Inn at 11 today to go to the Homeward Animal Shelter Spay-ghetti and No Balls Benefit. You were not having it. I think it was partially because you are starting to miss mom and dad and partially because there was so much going on; puppies and people and poopy diapers. Some whack-a-doo woman in the dessert line just HAD to bring a bite-sized cupcake to our table just for you which was, I’m sure, well intended.. but once a 2 year-old sees treats, girl cannot be stopped. Your lunch today was 2 bites of spaghetti, a nibble on a breadstick and an Emma-sized cupcake. Don’t tell your parents. ;)
And guess what bug-a-boo? You hate your diaper getting changed. What’s up with that? It took both Alicia and I to change you before we left. Uffda. Also, who invented those Koala diaper changers? They are brilliant and the perfect height to change stinky butts but so not made for a 2-year old that isn’t potty trained yet.
I had plans for us to hit up Clay Your Way today to do some painting but that just wasn’t in the cards for us. No worries though, we’ll squeeze it in before the end of the week. See, people.. I can move things around.
We spent the rest of the day hanging at home. You helped me clean Bodhi Boy’s liter box and we Facetimed Grandma Julie after supper. You had lots of “moments” today and it was a learning experience for me. I wanted to know what was wrong but you just didn’t have the words to tell me. It makes me sad to see you frustrated with whatever was going on in that little noggin of yours.
The night ended with a lavender infused bath-time which helped solve all the days problems in an instant. Thank you to Grandma for the suggestion.
