Re: what fun activity are you doing with DC today?

  • I'm working today--but tomorrow is my day off with DS and I'm thinking possibly the Children's museum.  We've never been there..  We might go shopping at Target for a few things.  And we'll probably color and maybe play with the homemade play dough. 
  • Today I'm really struggling.  After 2 days of frantic nesting energy I can barely move or keep my eyes open.  We are spending the day in comfy clothes and just watching tv and playing with the new Christmas toys the girls got.  I had a big list of things to do around the house today (since baby will be here in just under 2 weeks) but I think laundry may wind up being the extent of what I actually do.  And even that isn't going so straight. 

     

    Today is one of those days where I need to cut myself some slack.  A day of kids shows and trashing the living room with toys won't hurt the kids and hopefully tomorrow will be better.  :)

  • We went to the gym together this morning. Walked home so I could change and then took the subway to meet DH and have lunch together downtown (he LOVES the subway. Sometimes when we are super bored we just ride it for a while, LOL). This afternoon he needs to do some thank you card decorating for Christmas gifts - we are really behind on that.

  • Yeah, we have the same problem with nothing being scheduled.  I've tried to get out on a stroll each day, even though it's cold.  On Monday, we left just after dark to catch some of the Christmas lights in the neighborhood.

    We played "parachute" with a picnic blanket.  DD loves shaking it, hiding underneath, and singing little songs.

    We made a "bunny train" out of an old diaper box.  She pushes the train around the house, and every so often she makes a stop and a stuffed bunny hops on.  This can literally entertain her for an hour.

    We blew bubbles.  She'll be taking a longer, more elaborate bath than usual.  And last, there are always the Christmas toys to entertain her.

  • DH is home today and we took DD to see a kiddie rock band at a local coffee house with some friends.  It was fun!  :-)

  • DH is off all this week.  This morning, we took Ben here.  We met up with a friend of mine and her DH (who is also off).  They have a son who is 20 months and he and Ben are buddies.  

  • A friend of mine moved into a new house about a month ago and invited us over for a playdate. It was SO nice to have our kids run around playing together, getting tired, while the mommies sat around visiting with each other. She lives 40+ mins drive away so we don't get to see each other much, so it was very nice to get away.
