today was one of those days. does it seem to be a theme? maybe i need to redefine what my days "should" look like. should is such a funny word. i mean talk about setting myself up for frustration and missed expectations. :)
so my afternoon consisted of enzo
my kind husband came home early from work. i made a few frantic phone calls (around the time that gia decided to leave naptime and change her own pull-up in the bathroom. oh cleaning poop smeared porcelain is my next favorite way to spend the afternoon. isn't my life glamorous? mary poppins are you listening?) to him during the day. i was guided to take deep breaths and pray for patience and strength. smart guy.
we packed up our brood and headed over to jupiters (think chuck e cheese meets dave and busters with great pizza) for gia's paci party. she gave up her pacifier last month and we had promised her a celebration for this milestone. games were played, tickets were won, pizza was consumed, cheap plastic (yet carefully chosen) toys were brought home.
my girl was so excited for this night. she had been very gracious with several cancellations over the last couple weeks on our part. but you should have seen the bounce in her step as we loaded up the van. she sang little songs on the way there and then danced in the booth while eating her pizza. i love this girl. even if she smears poop all over the bathroom.
along with some ultra cool bangle bracelets, gia chose these groucho marx glasses to "buy" with her tickets.
