On Friday, we had a quiet night in. Well, quiet after Little Miss got booted to bed. She had been very tired all week, and the week culminated in a giant meltdown.
On Saturday, she asked Husband to get up with her and proceeded to talk to him for 2 hours straight. I slept in a little and then got up to meet a friend at the movies. Because she was running late, I also had time to vote early for the election this year. That was pretty awesome to get that out of the way with no line.
After, Husband, Little Miss and I went to my sister's place. Little Miss and Nephew had a blast together. He got a new loft-style bed and was eager to show that off. Little Miss loved it (briefly until she was stuck at the top and was a little too scared to come down and needed her daddy). My parents and my sister's boyfriend arrived later. We had some Chinese delivery and chatted. Little Miss opened a birthday present from my parents and played some video games. We left very late, but it was a good night.
On Sunday, I expected a meltdown. Little Miss went to bed very late the night before and didn't really sleep in, but I promised her she could come out with me. So, we went to an early lunch for book club. It was dim sum and Little Miss doesn't eat Chinese food so she patiently sat there while we ate. Then, we went to Target so she could spend her $10, and we could pick up various other items. After, it was late, and Little Miss really wanted breakfast for lunch so we hit IHOP. She was the most excellent girl all day. When we got home, it was probably around 3:30. We made 2 batches of cookie dough and then I carved Snow White and her apple out of a pumpkin and made dinner. I did bath time and then Husband helped with the bedtime routine before I rolled and baked way too many cookies. They were pretty darned photogenic though - and tasty. Surprisingly, Little Miss was fantastic on Sunday with little sleep. I, on the other hand, missed my weekend naps. A lot. In my defense, my crankypants are super comfortable.
