My parents offered to take Jackson for 2 nights, so I could spend 100% of my time and energy with this sweet girl! I have tried to pack full our schedule with fun special events that will create lasting memories! I have learned that it isn't the $ spent, rather the effort I put forth to figuring out what makes this girl smile the most!!
Today we dropped Jackson off around noon and headed to Subway for a girl's lunch! I love that Sophia will eat the turkey sub JUST AS I LOVED IT: loaded with veggies, spinach, black pepper, and oregano! That girl doesn't complain and loves every bite like her mama!
We came home and read tons of stories and she took a nice long nap!!
After her nap I surprised her with an afternoon of fun! First we went to Shear Fun to have her nails painted! (Best $6 I have spent in awhile!). The girl that did her nails took lots of time and even added a top coat of silver sparkles! Sophia LOVED every minute of this!! Can you tell by the pictures?
|Just before this picture, she leaned over, kissed me, and said, "I love you mommy!" |
(Insert HEART MELT!)
|Of course this is a STOCK photo ... not our dessert!|
When we got home, we had a yummy dinner followed by her favorite ... A POPCORN PARTY! We watched the first half of Monsters, Inc together while eating homemade popcorn!!
I think this little girl is having fun, what do you think?? All for a grand total spent for the day $17.06! Not too shabby huh?
Tomorrow we are headed to the Children's Museum with my sister and cousin Hannah along with the library in the evening. Thursday morning we have a play date with a good friend and then we are headed to Trader Joes and Whole Foods to stock up on our yummy treats and "clean" food!!
I forgot how easy it is with just a preschooler ... wow! Such a nice break!! :)
