Mommy and Me Time

This past weekend Aubrey and I enjoyed a fun Mommy/Daughter day.  Daddy was away at a church retreat and I had some big plans for us.  We won’t have many opportunities left for some good one on one time, so I hope she enjoyed it as much as I did!

Friday night started off with dinner – spaghetti with marinara – and a prompt bath after.  Man is that a messy dinner!

We then watched Dumbo on Netflix.  She didn’t seem to like it too much, but did love certain scenes.  I was also happy to figure out (remember?) that they don’t kill Dumbo’s mom. I always thought they did.




The next morning we woke up, I made some coffee while Aubrey had her bottle…and then…

She bounced on the couch and my coffee spilled on the cushion.  At least she helped me clean it? (also, thank heavens for slipcovers!)

After breakfast we got ready and headed to the mall.  There’s a new outdoor play area and Jon took her last weekend and he said she had a blast.  So it was my turn and she ran around, jumped, and then chatted it up with an older boy.  No dating till you’re 20 Aubrey!

We went to Five Guys for lunch and as you can tell, she was kind of over the day.  But once we got our food, and she ate, she was feeling a heck of a lot better.  The mall trip was also to find her a pair of summer shoes.  But each one we tried on, they just didn’t fit right.  But on our way back to the play area, I stopped in at Crazy 8 (sister store for Gymboree) and I found THE CUTEST flip flops!

So adorable right? And on sale 50% off! It’s her first pair and she did fairly well with the thing between her toes.

There was this huge rope spider web thing to climb on. Aubrey is still a bit too small but she liked climbing under the rope.

When we got home she got a surprise dinner guest – her Grammie.  And she brought dessert – mini moon pies! Aubrey ate all her dinner so she was treated to this dessert. She loved it!

Then it was fast to sleep for this tired girl.  I love how she sleeps on her pillow, clinging to her Violet puppy.

I love my little girl and so grateful for weekends like this!

    Very cute. I love Crazy 8 for kids shoes. Temera always asks me, “Mom, do you remember when I was an only child?” Sadly, I don’t remember a lot of it, but I still try and get as much one-on-one time with the girls as I can.
