A friend of mine had extra tickets to Sesame Street Live and she invited us to join, so Eliza and I enjoyed an entertaining show this morning! Another friend created this awesome Elmo bow/hat for her daughters, and she also made one for Eliza:
The show was really fun! Lots of singing and dancing, as you would expect. The toddlers had a blast.
Since both children decided to forgo their naps, we spent the afternoon at Brinca. Apparently, they didn’t get the memo that I would’ve gladly welcomed an afternoon nap for myself. Good thing Starbucks is conveniently located on the way there!
The weather has been cold and rainy, so that means we stayed home today. This might sound nice and cozy, but our little ones REALLY need to run around and play (preferably outside), as they become quite restless if we don’t go on an adventure. Alas!
So we did a lot of dancing, reading, coloring, roughhousing, singing, and movie-watching. How to Train Your Dragon is pretty great! I spent a lot of time cleaning up messes (what else is new?).
Eliza demonstrated one of her favorite pastimes to Jed–climbing in the dryer. What she failed to take into account, however, is that one of Jed’s favorite pastimes is closing doors.
Well last night was just terrific. I made the terrible mistake of allowing Eliza to nap for three hours yesterday, and she was awake and cranky until 1:45AM. At 2:45, Jed started his shenanigans. At 6:00, we woke up for the day. Needless to say, I feel like a zombie. Here’s hoping tonight will be much, much better!
I thought I was feeling better, and I was for most of today, but this evening my cough and stuffy nose are pretty bad. Yuck! Hopefully, tomorrow I’ll have the energy to take some pics. Eliza and Jed seem to feel ok, thank goodness!
No pics today, but check back tomorrow! Good news: everyone is feeling much better! Frustrating news: Jed now remembers how awesome it is to wake up for cuddles (what feels like) 35 times per night. Back to cry it out, I guess :-(
What a fun school day! These little kids are just adorable. Eliza loves her classmates and teachers so much…she talks about them all the time! It’s amazing how much they have grown and changed over the course of the school year.
Jed stayed home with Jimmy since he’s under the weather. He still has a great attitude, though!
