Birthday Weekend Recovery & More
Wow. Just wow is all I have to say. This weekend was a handful.
Saturday we went out with Mr. C’s Mom for lunch to spend time with her, and after we all went to midtown to shop and walk around (although we didn’t buy anything).
Sunday we spent time with my Mom and took her and Zee to the mall to buy some things for the home. We ended up having dinner out (very light, soup), and Zee was too tired to stay awake on the way home. So finally, she went down for the night without waking up (yay!)
Yesterday we celebrated my Mom’s and Mr. C’s birthday. I didn’t really have a clue what to do for either of them, but they both said they just wanted to spend time together as a family–so spend time as a family we did.
We went out to eat lunch and walked around and shopped. The day couldn’t have ended without a trip to the park so that Zee can make new friends. Sadly though, by time we got to the park, the temperature dropped and it was cold outside once again. We couldn’t stay long.
I’m glad that it worked out well and they all enjoyed themselves. Me on the other hand would have much liked to sleep the day away, but eh, it was not my day.
Speaking of the park, I love the fact that we can take Zee to any ethnic neighborhood and let her play with the children there. We try our best to go to same parks so she can meet the same kids (but you know, everyone is on a different schedule). I think it’s a great way for her to interact with children of different backgrounds and see that everyone is really all the same, even if we look different.
Now, the downside to that is, whenever we go shopping or driving her keen eyes knows where all the parks are. All I hear from the backseat is:
“Mama, slides and swings! I wanna go on slides and swings!”
It’s okay, I expect it. I’m just glad that Mr. C is okay with our many trips to the park and running after her (him running, me sitting and watching).
Right now, the goal is to catch up on the work at home and try to take it easy.
And seriously, if I was home alone right now, I know I will be sleeping.
