I left school before four o'clock today to try and get back early enough for R and I to both pick up Kage from day care. It's a special treat for her if we can both make it to pick her up. She just squeals with delight when she sees mommy and daddy walk into her classroom. And hearing her "mommy" "daddy" makes our hearts swell with pride.
|City Christmas lights are already on!|
I took the daily sheets to her pediatrician and she agreed. It wasn't sufficient, nor was it healthy. So, we got the handy dandy doctor's note stating that she must have juice or water offered all throughout the day. The whole week following that note being brought in.....she had milk with snack and lunch.
I gave up.
So we did decide to stay with the same school, just switched to a different campus. I mean, I am thrilled, beyond thrilled with their curriculum and program. I can't say enough about how much Kinley has learned already. But the campus just wasn't a good fit.
Don't get me wrong, it was so nice being able to walk her there and walk to pick her up. But let's face it, I'm so lazy. I walked one time. So now the new campus is about 10 minutes away, but it's on the way to work for both of us. And. She loves it. Like, really, really loves it.
So back to today....we both went to pick her up and it sure was a blessed treat, for sure. We took her to eat at McDonald's. Yes, I am a bad mom. Whatever.
We went to a fancy McDonald's in a nice, ritzy area. Does that improve my bad mom status? The Play land was posh. I loved it. She was in heaven. Played her little heart out. Ate a little.
So a kid friendly restaurant is all that we are allowed. Mac and Don's it is.
She ate (some) and we let her play for a bit. And then we headed to family night at the local play place. This place rocks. It has so many climbing things and slides and bounce houses and an art room and a coffee bar and pizza. And on Friday nights, it's only $5 per child. Score! Cheap and fun!
We had a blast. The last time that we went, she was so tiny and could barely slide on her own. Tonight, she was running us ragged. She was climbing and sliding and running and playing. Blew us away.
She climbed to the top of the twisty slide, and she always sits and waits at the top for us to count, 1-2-3. Well, some rambunctious boys that looked to be about 3 or 4, came up behind her and were just about to give her a push. I jumped over and yelled, "Don't you push her!" and before I could get that last word out.....Daddy ran right up to the boy and got in his face and growled, "You wait your turn!"
I about died laughing! Daddy to the rescue! The boy just looked at him and his partner in crime behind him just said, "Yeah, wait your turn!" Talk about throwing your buddy under the bus! Kage was oblivious to anything happening.
It kind of makes me smile to see my husband become such a protective daddy. No one will ever hurt his little girl. And if they do....watch out!
