Weekend Update - Let's Go to the Mall

As Robin Sparkles would say, let's go to the mall!

Husband had to work a lot for some big, uh, work thing. So, Friday night, I finished a book and relaxed before Little Miss came home. I fed Little Miss dinner and put her to bed. Husband came home late and we ate a late dinner.

On Saturday, Husband woke up with Little Miss so I could sleep late, but I couldn't. I couldn't fall back asleep. It was horrible. So, I got up. I got up and got ready for an afternoon with a friend. When my friend got here, we drove to the
mall. We had a fantastic lunch at Five Guys. Little Miss had some pasta and red sauce for lunch. Then, we went to the germ pit so she could run around. She's so funny because the other kids just don't phase her at all. She kind of ignored the kids and just ran around. A little while later, we walked around. Last, we decided to get some ice cream at Coldstone Creamery. Little Miss always has room for ice cream. On the way out of the mall, we stop at Barnes & Noble. Little Miss played with the other children at the train table. She mostly just took a train and ran all around. I dropped my friend at the train station and went home.

On Saturday night, I went to the grocery store and, while I went, Little Miss had a full-out temper tantrum at the prospect of being left home without me. It was kind of sad. When I came home, she ran to the door to greet me and was very happy. It is a nice feeling to be greeted at the door with such happiness.

On Sunday, Little Miss slept late. She doesn't take many naps on the weekends, and that's fine because she doesn't fuss too much when she's sleepy. So, once we both got up and ready, we drove out to
a mall that's a little further away. We shared some lo mein and then walked around. I did a little shopping, and we went home, she ate a mix of peas, strawberries, carrots and a chicken cube for dinner. She's going through a phase where she doesn't eat a lot of meat. As long as she eats something healthy, I don't really care. After some playing, I put her to bed early. I did my nails in "An Affair in Red Square. I'm not too in love with the red right now so I may have to go purple later in the week. Anyway, at this point, I'm just hanging out until Husband comes home. He's been gone since before I woke up. I vaguely recall saying goodbye to him. I'll probably head to bed and watch tv until then.

Two things before I end the recap. First, the weather was horrible this weekend - drizzly and chilly. I wanted to get out of the house, and the mall is easy and can be inexpensive. Second, totally witnessed a Mommy fight. Now, I'm a pretty laid back mom. Kids were bumping into Little Miss left and right. As long as she picked herself up again, I was fine with it. Some kid almost hurt this other kid. He didn't, but he could have. So, the girl's mom told the kid to be careful. It's important to say she didn't grab the boy, but she did put her hand on him to get his attention. At this point, the mommies just lit into each other. They were all screaming. Little Miss chose this point to aimlessly wander over to them. I scooped her up. The Super Mommies scare me, but the Scary Mommies scare me even more! Little Miss had a great weekend and both days, the end result was Little Miss sleeping in the carseat.
