Such a quick little post this will be, I just had to share how much fun my husband and I had with Miss G yesterday. Mitchell spent the night with my mom Friday night, and again last night (that's a whole different post -- just trust me that he is having the time of his life!) so we have had Georgia all to ourselves. Now, it's not that we are glad he's not here, but we've never had the chance to play "only child" with her.
I can just say that playing that game is something all three of us adored. We just took turns eating each other up.
We headed to some nearby outlet malls for the day and had so much fun. Last time we attempted this (with both kids) it was a nightmare but yesterday was so, so, so much fun. We only bought two things...new snow boots for her and soap for the sinks. (Have I mentioned that I'm a B&B soap snob?? I love it.) Anyway -- we just took joy in walking around, admiring the clothes, kitchen wares (drooooooool), purses, shoes, etc. and most especially in watching Georgia walk around. That girl charms just about everyone she makes eye contact with and had the lady at Geoffrey Beane about ready to take her home with her.
What a treat to have her all alone for a day. It makes me think that we need to do this more often, the one-on-one thing, with both kids. We love our family time and the first thing she asks for every morning is "Brother," but I also know that this was special time for us. I also know that Mitchell wouldn't change a thing about his weekend either. He had Grandma Kiki all to himself and lived out every 4 year old boy's dream by watching his cousin play Div I college football, go on the field after the game, and left with his gloves and wristbands. I can't wait to see him today and hear his version of the day's events!
I'll leave you with a post of Miss G and her new boots. She is in love with these boots!
