day of rest

By Tara Zandra | January 24, 2010

Two days in a row with no plans is my limit. I spent a good portion of the day wishing we could go out and about. Initially I had thought I would work on Daisy’s robe and party invitations this weekend. But when I was faced with it, I’d rather spend the time with my family. We spent a few hours together playing Pitfall, which isn’t the most constructive way to spend a day, but it was fun. Chris and I rearranged the girls room again since Daisy is a might too tall to be under Tabitha’s bed. We simply put Tabitha’s dollhouse and her American Girl stuff under the bed and moved Daisy’s bed to the tree painted wall. It’s not perfect and the room needs more work, but at this point I don’t think the room will be done until the day my kids move out.

Speaking of dollhouses, Daisy has decided this is what she needs and wants in life more than anything else. The problem would be space (isn’t it always?). Tabitha’s dollhouse is huge and we cannot make room for another of that size. On the other hand, I don’t want to skimp out and get the kid a tiny little thing that won’t be much fun. I’m frantically searching Amazon for an acceptable one that is eligible for Amazon prime because her birthday is in a week and a half at this point. I have three saved to my favorites so I need to go through them again and maybe make a list of pros and cons. Still not entirely sure where we would put it, but I imagine we’ll figure it out.

I’m kind of glad she came up with something though. As of 2 days ago her birthday wish list consisted entirely of “Fancy Nancy dog, Littlest Pet Shops, Webk!nz Tree Frog.” That’s it. Not exactly a lot to go on. At least she recognizes when she doesn’t need anything.

The parties are coming up and I do need to work on them. I keep thinking Tabitha’s is easy and doesn’t need much planning, but I really should make a list or I’m sure I’ll find myself frantic the day of the party. Why I had my kids 5 days apart is beyond me. I don’t recommend it :)
