But -- every once in awhile, I get a "wild hair"....
Last week, I came across a website which lists out fun days of the year (as well as the normal national holidays).
This past Monday was National Hippo Day (see previous post).
Today was "National Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day"! I thought we should just go it -- part of that "being wild" part...All five of us in this household enjoyed breakfast today!
After everybody in our household got to where they needed to go this morning, Kate & I went to our local grocery store. I never usually let her get a little cart because quite frankly, she's clumsy. And, I've heard a few people who don't have children complain about them. Don't feel bad for Kate, though. Her grandparents let her get a little cart when she's with them. It's called "Grandparents are fun people"!
But -- we were there a little after 8:00 AM -- when the store wasn't very busy. We only needed a few things. AND -- Kate simply helped herself to the cart and put her baby in it like a little Mama. I couldn't resist! Admittedly -- she did a good job!
Later on in the day, I had some things around the house I really needed to get done! Kate generally doesn't do very well entertaining herself. Today was no exception. I finally simply told her she had to go & play by herself for awhile...I was mentally exhausted by her needs.
Fortunately, she went to her little kitchen and "cooked"! She made chicken, bread with chocolate and pepper (????), and cookies!
