is definitely Saturday!!! It's taking us all a little longer than expected to get back into the swing of things since I've gone back to work. We're all exhausted. Poppy turns into a beast every night at about 5:30, and bedtime can't come soon enough. I'm so tired that I'm not usually too far behind her. She's still crying when we drop her off in the morning at daycare - I can't wait until we get to the point where she runs to the door of daycare and says bye and then waves to me from the window. Friday morning when she woke up she declared that she was staying home, and so was mommy and so was daddy and Lola. It broke my heart to tell her I had to go to work and that we wouldn't be able to snuggle in bed all day. So right now we are all definitely looking forward to our weekends together.
This morning we went on our weekly walk to the farmers market (to pig out on fruit and muffins), the library, bank, co-op, dry cleaners, movie store, and a few other shops in between. By the time we got home from our walk, we had so much stuff in our wagon that there wasn't enough room for Poppy.
And then there's always something fun going on Saturday evenings. Tonight we met up with some friends at the Irish Festival...
She couldn't believe that she got a "tattoo" on her face and she was so excited to point it out to everyone.
And she still asks for "Baby Youeeeee" at least one time a day, but then when she sees him she still clams up. Funny little girl.
Amanda, I don't know how you do it! I'm still "at home" and I fall into bed shortly after Spencer... you go girl!
And I don't get nearly as much done on the weekends as you do. Wow.
It looks like it was a blast today!
Oh man, that must have been so hard to go to work after hearing Poppy tell you everyone was staying home. I hope she adjusts to daycare soon.
Looks like she had a wonderful Saturday with you guys though.
I agree with Chandra - I can't imagine how much it broke your heart to have to tell her you all couldn't stay home. What a strong mama! Is there a *little* part of you that's kinda glad that she'd rather be with you than at daycare? :) And yikes - I'm sorry to hear about the nighttime beast she's become! What does she do that's so terrible?
And I'm with Christine - I don't know HOW you do it all and still walk upright during the day!
Claire had fun with Poppy at the Irish Festival :) I am soooo jealous of the picture of Poppy's tatoo!!!
right there with you...nothing beats a saturday morning at the market! love it!
What a great Saturday! I'm sure it really made up for the tough week. Being back to work is an adjustment for all isn't it.
