It’s Monday. My brain is in a weird space. So rather than a brain dump Monday, how about a miscellany Monday?
We’ve tried to go to Splasheville (local splash pad) the past two weekends. I’m somewhat convinced that the city just doesn’t have it open on weekends. We haven’t seen it open in about a month (and my son desperately wants to go.) What gives, Asheville? Why all of the private events??
We’re having a small birthday party for our three-year-old this weekend. I feel like a Pinterest-fail. I really haven’t pulled out all the stops (yet) for his party. Of course, I have 6 days to pull myself together. A lot can happen in 6 days.
The weekend was good. We all got haircuts, and the toddler was able to play with a friend on Saturday morning. (Schedules don’t always align so that the neighborhood toddlers can play with each other!) My boy showed us that he could truly be well-behaved. Some days I have my doubts, but this weekend he was polite and shared and really listened.
Don’t get me wrong. My kid can melt down with the best of them. And he made sure we knew he was not happy to be at Sam’s Club on Saturday.
My latest Influenster VoxBox was a sampling of ice cream. My friend Carol and I made sure to stock up on Friday night. The girl at Target didn’t even question the five boxes of ice cream bars I had in my cart.
On Saturday, I ran 7 miles with a friend, and at the end we came across a moving sale. I randomly purchased a backpack for my son, as well as an outdoor play tent for him. He’s been having a blast – mostly with the backpack. He loves storing his cars in that thing. And for $5, it totally beat the $25 bags I was looking at on Amazon.
How was your weekend?
