While I was home Thursday, a much anticipated package came in the mail. Partly as an ongoing 10th anniversary present to ourselves and partly because it needed to be done, MH and I have been updating and replacing some items in our house. We have been using mismatched, cobbled together, flimsy plastic cups for ages. Our new set arrived Thursday. We love it! In case anyone out there reading isn't aware, I love color. Color makes me happy. These cups are sold with a lifetime warranty for breakage. I accidentally left one of our older cups like this on the top of my car a couple years ago, and it didn't break when
Friday, I spent most of the day and evening alone. During the day, I was trying to get a handle on my breathing and trying to rest. In the evening, MH took Tot to see MonsterJam. Tot highly enjoyed seeing the big ol' trucks drive over smashed cars and do donuts. When I asked him the next morning about his night, he happily sung "Who et tha dogs out? Woof woofwoof woof!" It was awesome and hilarious all rolled up in one little song. In case you don't know, that is the theme song for MonsterMutt. I'd say that father and son both enjoyed their outing.
By Saturday, the adequate oxygenation and the steroids gave me better energy that needed an outlet. MH took me and Tot shopping and generally out and about. The weather was fabulous, so we ventured to a river walk area and explored a walking bridge and a submarine. We also enjoyed dinner at a kid-friendly downtown brewery. It is a personal goal of mine this year to better acclimate Tot with restaurant eating. We don't go out to nicer places super often, but it is something like on occasion. Sometimes we want to go alone, but other times we want to take him along and enjoy dinner our with him (keyword: enjoy). We ordered his meal along with our appetizer so that he could get right down to eating. Since we had such a great long walk, Tot ate like a champ! Saturday was a terrific day of enjoying our family and great weather.
I worked Monday, though that wasn't my plan. Tot's daycare was closed for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. I planned to take vacation to hang out with him, but since I was out sick two days last week, Tot spent the day with our niece who was actually thrilled to be able to come watch him. She has been unavailable the last few times we had asked, so I am glad that the two of them were able to love on each other a little. Here's to a better week already!
