We were busier than one-armed wallpaper hangers.
Saturday we did all the normal Saturday chores, deep cleaning, baking bread, laundry, etc. AND had a party which added baking cupcakes, blowing up balloons and stocking up on some party supplies. We had a good time, it was just a busy day.
We discovered that while Monkey has totally mastered the art of sharing OTHER kids’ toys he’s not yet mastered sharing HIS toys, lol. Munchkin (the 4 year old cousin) was a pretty good sport about it and we did intervene. Bratty behavior will not be tolerated Mr. Man!
On Sunday, we took a few hours to ourselves and then set off on our trip to Maine around 1. We stopped to buy some more underwear for Monkey since he’s now in it full time during the days he needed a few more pairs. We had to convince him that he could have three packages, he was quite content with one and kept trying to put the others back, silly kid!
We then drove on to Papa’s house. Monkey was a little hesitant about walking into the house, it had been a long time since he’d been there. Normally, we see Papa at my parents’ house next door. Once we were through the door though he did great! He said “Hi Papa” which thrilled my grandfather to pieces. He played with the box of ancient toys (seriously, they’re toys I played with when I was his age and they were not new then either!) and explored the house while I sat and chatted. He wanted Duhdee to go with him on his exploration junkets, he was too hesitant to go alone, but we’ll work on that. We’re planning to put in a 3 sisters garden on our plot of land next door so we’ll be up there a lot more this summer.
We stopped by to visit my parents for a little while but they’ve been sick and it was getting late so we headed out to find dinner and make our way home. We stopped for a late dinner and Monkey’s head didn’t hit his pillow until after 9 and he was in a great mood the entire day. Amazing. He bounced right up this AM and headed off to school happily to boot. I wish I could say the same about me, lol.
