Thursday again? That was a quick week!
Poor Addikins. Did you happen to hear the screams yesterday? She had to have 5 shots. (That is 1, 2, 3, 4, FIVE!!!) It was terrifying. For Mommy. I got a flu shot first to show her how easy it was and then had to HOLD.HER.DOWN. while she was stuck five times. Did I mention she had five shots? The poor thing. It was a wee bit traumatic.
Therefore, pretty much anything Miss Addie wanted yesterday, she got. “Mama? My tummy really thinks it wants McDonald’s for lunch.”
“I will go up and pick out my own clothes for the park, Mama.”
Yep. She really did go out like that. And, Yep. I really did tell her she looked fabulous.
All I know is…my arm aches. Those flu shots don’t mess around. Ouch.
J. is on the first of his whirlwind October travels and we are all missing him already. So to fill our afternoon we headed to the park, after we picked Em up from Chess Masters that is. Yes, you read that right. Chess Masters. She came home so psyched last week about the club that teaches you to play chess! And you get to play with a life-sized chess board!
So, we said, why not? It might make for some craziness for a few years, but she needs to explore and figure out what really gets her excited. Now when Addie gets to this stage and I can’t keep up with the two of them, I’m going to have to put my foot down and make them start choosing. But for now, she has added Chess Master to her repertoire.
I think that taking a break from my camera, is very smart for me. I feel like I get to the point where I get stale and uninspired. And then after a few weeks of not looking through my viewfinder, I find that I am pleasantly surprised when I download my photos at the end of the day.
My new favorite photo of Em…
This one isn’t too bad either. I love it when she scrunches her nose up like this.
I have high hopes that this weekend is going to be productive and relaxing at the same time. That is possible isn’t it?
