Quickly catching up on weekend updates. The weekend after the baptism was a low-key, quiet one. That Friday, we were discharged from the hospital. We stayed close to home. Little Miss went camping with my parents at Hershey Park. She had such a great time, she only called home to talk to us once.
The first weekend in October, Little Miss and I ran some errands. We had to buy a birthday gift for a friend of hers and a baby shower gift. Then, we went to her friend’s birthday at a nearby park. She had so much fun, she wouldn’t stop playing to eat. On Sunday, she had a playdate with a friend and didn’t want me along. So, she was gone all day long. They all went into the city to the Air & Space Museum, had a picnic, and did all sorts of fun things. In the meantime, I tidied and did no fun things.
Last weekend was our 15th anniversary. We went out to dinner and had a very pleasant evening and then came home with Baby and rented a movie. Little Miss had a sleepover with the In-Laws where she got her birthday presents early (a little shopping spree). She got a mix of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle toys and Frozen dress up clothes. On Sunday, it was a lazy quiet day. I would have preferred a little lazier, but I got talked into bringing Little Miss out with her bike. So, I wore the Baby while Little Miss rode her bike. We were out for a couple of hours. She made friends at one point. Then, we went home, and she made her birthday party invitations. She really wanted to make them this year so I just made them on printer paper and she cut around the printed section and glued onto orange and black construction paper and added a sticker or two. It wasn’t a big deal, but she had fun. It was cheaper than buying invitations, and I have a billion sheets of construction paper left for future crafts. This is partially because I misordered, but we’ll use it.
October is probably going to be our busiest month all year. During the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, I go out of my way not to overplan so things aren’t so busy, but October is crazy. Plus, it’s a month that culminates in bags and bags of candy. Nutso.
