I know that every Friday, I have deadlines. I also know that I have children. I've been fortunate enough to find a great day care provider for Madi and the past two weeks, I was kidless from 8:45-12:00 on Fridays. In this time, I'm able to get a lot accomplished.
This week, Ms. Megan was unable to watch Madi.
I had to do it.
Can you believe it?
Now, to the lesson.
We went to Target around 10:00 am to find some baby shoes. Yes, I bought Madi an icee and popcorn. What? You say it's too early for a snack like that? I disagree.
We stopped at Michaels and then home.
I decided I'd set Madi up with her popcorn and a movie. That should give me at least 20 minutes before I have to come up with another stimulating activity.
Did I tell you that I set her up on the couch?
Sure did. Did I tell you I gave her the entire bag of popcorn?
Do you know what happens next?
Yep, you were right.
She spilled it....everywhere.
And would have napped in it if I let her.
A better idea? That would not have taken me 15 minutes to clean up (and take pictures).
So the lesson in this? The moral of the story?
Tell Ms. Megan that she's not allowed to take Fridays off.
