And what does a good day start with? A good night's sleep! Last night both Maisie and Mum were fast asleep by 7:30 PM and other than a few wake-ups which required just a few moments of comforting, she slept in the p-n-p until 7:30 am. After a breakfast of yogurt and rice cereal we were off to the library for story time where we did clapping rhymes, sang little songs, played with a parachute and listened to two books followed by lots of toys and books being spread out so we could play with the other children.
Such a busy morning tired out little Maisie enough that when we returned home, she actually allowed me to put her in the p-n-p where she took a short 20 nap. Then the girl who thus far would only eat cheerios, goldfish, pudding, chocolate yogurt and chocolate mint candy, actually ate some chicken pot pie and apple/pear sauce, will wonders never cease! We were just having such a good day that I decided to take her over to The Playroom for their drop-in playtime. Maisie made friends with two little girls and though scared at first ended up loving the trampoline. I think that we'll be visiting The Playroom often as we had fun and there's so much more there to explore.
We were still going strong so a shopping trip to Tar*jay was our next stop where we found lots of tights on sale so she's set for the rest of this winter as well as next winter. It was getting late and cooking dinner was the last thing I wanted to do once returning home so a quick stop at the new Trader Joe's and a dinner of lobster ravioli in vodka sauce was just a quick boil away. Maisie really loved the chicken pot pie at lunch so a repeat meal was her dinner. Today was the most food and the most nutritious meals that she's ever had. Overall a perfect day all around.
The picture above is Maisie when we returned from our day out and she was still a happy girl. Now she's sleeping soundly in the p-n-p and hopefully it will be another good night followed by another good day tomorrow.
Just a few piccies from the weekend.
