We had a great day today! I got home from work mid-morning and was able to catch up on some sleep before Jason had to leave for work - huge blessing. The kids and I went to Target this evening for some things and it actually went smoothly. Well, as smooth as it can go when you get that cart, you know, the one that makes so much noise everyone in the store can hear you and your son empties one side of a table of folded shirts into his lap while you are looking at snowpants with your daughter etc. Really, it went well. Amelia was so, so excited about everything we looked at and Joe was fine as long as the supply of animal crackers didn't slow.
The kids had gift cards so Amelia chose a Little People zoo animal for each of them.
The newest additions to our zoo are a flamingo and an ostrich! Amelia is thrilled with them and a co-worker of mine taught her how to stand like a flamingo which only makes her more excited about that one!
We were up past bedtime tonight but both kids were very happy - unusual! We have skipped bath for two nights in a row now - also unusual! We have a busy weekend ahead of us and I hope it goes as well as today did!
