Okay, so I thought today was going to be a little more relaxed. We were going out to eat with a dear friend of mine, Lisa. But other than that low key.
The meal was a disaster, I don't know why I think I can take them out to eat period. It is just too chaotic. After eating we were outside letting the kids walk around....(side note, Emma is watching basketball right now. They were showing a scene inside George Mason's locker room and the coach says, "Okay, team let's do it." and Emma jumps up and yells at the TV and says, "Okay, Let's do it.") soooo, the kids were running around and Emma is in a cute smocked dress playing. These three black boys come up to her, they were walking in with their mom, and they were probably about eight. one of them looked at her and said, "She's cute for a white girl." Emma was like, "Okay???" It was too cute.
So Bubby was so tired when we got home but would not take a nap. He screamed, I cried. Finally I gave up and let them both go outside and play. Which they absolutely adored. Then they got to have pizza for dinner, yummy. We had stuffed crust and double pepperoni. YUMMY. Then we braved a slightly chilly evening (we wrapped the kiddos in blankets) and went for a walk. I sure missed those from last summer. Bubby was absolutely falling over himself by the time we got home. He scarved down a banana and then went straight to sleep.
Emma, in the meantime, was playing playdough. She has a habit of making things and passing them out to people as food or candy. Usually, the people playing along realize it is not chocolate (being that it is often bright purple or yellow.) BUT today it was brown and she happened to include Big Daddy. Let's just say after he was finished with his piece of playdough, he quickly had mom come over and help him figure out what he had just eaten. Needless to say, I had to explain to Emma that when she gave Big Daddy playdough, she could NOT tell him it was candy or chocolate. I felt so bad for him. My kids are just so full of energy it is hard to know what they are going to do next.
So that is today. Tomorrow Tal is going to go to the Zoo with us!!! And Niki is taking pictures of the kids. So we will have a great day!
