This day was pretty low key. If I had to do it again, I would have made him pick a longer outing somewhere (? Zoo, Butterfly World, etc). BUT, he was happy and that was all that really mattered!
We got a slightly slow start because he had to do a quick thyroid blood test — but the phlebotomist is like his doting aunt and my colleagues always give him toys when we stop by. So that sounds like a drag, but I think he had fun. I also let him stop at the hospital gift shop (which we NEVER do) where he got a set of 5 Matchbox cars.
THEN: he wanted to go to Michael’s (because Annabel went, obvs). He picked out a FIMO clay kit to make tiny fake food and we made cute little doughnuts and ice cream cones.
Lunch per request was Panera – we picked up & ate at home but he was excited!
Then I tried to get him to go outside somewhere but he said he just really wanted to hang out with me while playing iPad, so we did. He showed me some of his game and I may haven a nap in there . . .
We capped off the day with a trip to Cold Stone. #happiness.
That caps off 3 Mommy days in a 2 week time frame. Next time I am going to space them out a bit further to make sure I have maximum energy for each one (yes, these take energy though they are fun!). I think each kid really enjoyed having their own ‘day’ though and I definitely want to continue this tradition into the future! Hoping Josh can do Daddy Day during the summer, too!
