Ever since my whiny post last weekend, Becca and I have been staying pretty active for the past two days (Oh my god, it has only been TWO days? No wonder we don't do more stuff.) We have gone for walks, hung out at Barnes and Noble and McDonald's. Oh! I have found the key to having a quiet dinner out--go during the Super Bowl. That was awesome. We were the only people in McDonald's. But, I still can't let her play on the indoor playground. The germaphobe comes roaring out of my like a rabid lion. No way, no how. I can almost see the diseased snot covering every nasty surface. Becca doesn't even know that the playground exists and I'd like to keep it that way! Also new, I didn't get her a high chair and just let her sit in a booth. That was so nice. Sure, she stood up and smeared her ketchup covered hands on everything, but it isn't my house, so I wasn't bothered. It was nice not having to drag a high chair around and force her into it!
Yesterday morning was taken up with the photo stuff. Yesterday evening we went down the street to our friends' house (they have 2 year old twins and an older boy.) We ate dinner there and came back in time for bedtime.
Today Becca and I were up and at Target before 9:30. Then, we went and fed the ducks and geese again. Becca loves doing this. I may make this a weekly outing. It kills at least an hour and she is outside and happy. Today I wised up and put some waterproof/mudproof/duck poop proof boots on her.
She had a ball. I'm hoping she takes a really long nap, since she's been waking up an hour earlier than normal the last few days. And lord knows, after running around for two days, I need a good nap myself.
