my weekends are usually such a blur. they involve a lot of running and multi-tasking. and they always start and end the exact same way. i get home from work on Friday and the first thing out of Emily’s mouth is, "What’s our Friday treat?" and the last thing out of her mouth on Sunday night (when the husband and i get home from our weekly night-out with friends) is always "My stomach hurts. i had a baby throw-up in my mouth and i feel like i might barf"
every weekend. and i seriously wish i was joking.
well…she went to the Royal Winter Fair with her Daddy, while i worked at the Today’s Parent Baby and Toddler Show. where, i’m sure, there was no shortage of treats
(note the ever-growing mullet on Josh in the photo)
and every sunday morning we take the kids out for breakfast. We are big fans of a restaurant called Kiva’s…but we do occasionally take them to Tim Horton’s. and Emily always manages to get several donuts out of this…she eats. her sister and brother don’t. she’s the victor – she gets the spoils. no shortage of treats.
we also made a birthday party for Joshua. We took all the boys in his class, and Emily and his one girl choice (too cute) to see the Bee Movie. In a word, it was CHAOS. but the kids had a good time. and i sat next to Emily and once she finished her popcorn, she ate mine. and once she finished her drink, she drank mine. so, again, no shortage of treats.
(ps. movie was adorable. i highly recommend)
and then she went to a bowling birthday party. where, say it with me, there was no shortage of treats.
so, it comes as NO surprise to me that Emily has a stomach ache every.single.sunday.night.
(but, of course, it still doesn’t make me panic any less and pop the zantac AND the xanax with anticipation of a vomit-filled night that NEVER comes to fruition.)
how was your weekend?? 🙂
