One Of Those Days

In: Kids & Mom

23 Aug 2009

Dickie Lake 2009 039My day starts off by taking the girls to the grocery store.  Two poops and three meltdowns later I realize I left my wallet in the car after all the groceries were bagged.  I asked the clerk to watch the kids and said sorry to the Saturday morning grocery line up and sprinted out to my car at the back of the lot.  I returned to Kasia screaming and Ava just looking around rubbing her curls. Sorry 4 meltdowns.

Kasia is convinced she is getting a pet lobster from the grocery store for her birthday.  She just thinks mommy cannot afford a tank yet.

We took the girls to the water park at the end of our street and tired them out for their naps.  After they woke we took them for dinner and a walk on the boardwalk at the beach.  Like any normal family our walk turned into a chin up competition on the bars and fitness rings that line the boardwalk.  Total family count 15 and 1/2.  Mike 11, me 4, Kasia 1/2, Ava 0.  Kasia then decided to make up her own chin up.  “Mommy look at this”, as she is scrunching up her face.  “Whats that?”  I ask.  “Chin ups, see I win” replies Kasia.  I thought this was pretty cleaver and very competitive.  She figured out a way to beat us already- GREAT.  If anyone can recommend some parenting advice please let us know.

Thanks Cascia, hope you are doing well with your newborn. Ava has to walk before chin ups.
