Happy Thursday!!!! I hope you have had a good week. Our week started off by a little after school park action. It is so hard missing out on all the fun hours with Zoey but I am REALLY taking advantage of these late days. So we started our week off by meeting H & L at the park after school for an hour or so. Then headed to the library for the Storytime program. But Z and I found out quickly that they have changed it due to the summer program. So I had one disappointed little girl on my hands but I convinced her to eat at the library with me still. Once we were in the library café we found this big jazz band playing. Z was in HEAVEN! She had the absolute best time eating and dancing with everyone that was a good 50 years older than us…ha!
Friday was an AMAZING day for me! I would be lying if I didn’t say there are several, several days that my heart is just so broken that I have to drop Z off at school and I don’t get to spend all day with her but today was NOT one of those because it was her school’s “Mother’s Day Program and Spa Party”. I was like a kid at Christmas the entire night before and the day at work. I was so giddy all day and could not wait to get to school to see baby girl. And it didn’t disappoint! Take a look at this video below from the program…Could it get any cutier!?!?!?!
After the program I had the best time getting my manicure, massage, and snacks from Z! She was so incredibly proud and kept pointing to me and saying “my mommy” which just made me beam with pride!!!
Saturday we decided to celebrate mother’s day since we were going to be with our families the next day. So we woke up early grabbed some Waffle House then headed on over to Helena for the Buck Creek Festival. It was our first time there and was not sure what to expect but we were wonderfully surprised! They had vendors, food trucks, music stages, and a HUGE kids area full of playgrounds, jump-jumps, and kid’s rides. Z was in HEAVEN and absolutely loved it. We also had a great time just hanging out by the river there eating Italian Ice and peanuts. E also tried to teach Z how to hula hoop…now that was a funny sight!
Later that night Susan came over to babysit Z while me and E went to see The Great Gatsby! It was our first date night in a really long time so I was super pumped and the movie did not disappoint either! So to sum up our day Eric did a great job at making my mother’s day feel really special!
But the Mother’s Day celebrations continued Sunday too! We met my extended family at the Zoo for an early lunch then a day walking around. It was SUPER fun getting to hang out with everyone and of course Z love showing off all of “her animals”. Yes…we go there so much she is convinced they are all “hers”! Once home I took a quick nap with Z then we headed on over to Eric’s parents house for dinner with his family. Z’s was pumped up to get to see her cousins and jump on the trampoline. They were seriously out there jumping for hours! And we had a great time just having dinner on the back porch.
Monday after work and school we visited the library for dinner and to pick up some DVD’s and books about getting your tonsils out since this Thursday E will be having surgery! I wanted her to have a good idea what is going to happen to her so I thought books about it would help and of course we somehow left with 25 DVD’s for her to watch at the hospital and the two weeks she has to say in the bed…ha!
Tuesday was a long day but I wanted to take one last outing before me and Z would be cooped up in the house for two weeks so we went to the Baron’s game with my family. It was a BLAST and a perfect night, perfect weather, and extra special because I was able to meet my brother’s new girlfriend Courtney, who we absolutely loved!
So that brings us to today. I have been running around like a crazy lady trying to get everything wrapped up with work before I take off for several days. And of course we happened to have a house showing at 7 tonight that I had to clean for and the big thing I had to get completed tonight was taking Z grocery shopping for things she can eat over the next two weeks. But we somehow managed to get it all done and are hopefully ready to go first thing in the morning.
So say a prayer for Zoey! I am not all that worried about the surgery but keeping her hydrated after surgery. So pray she eats and drinks so we only have to spend one night not two at the hospital! Thanks so much!!!
