We had a great weekend and Monday hit me hard this was my desk at 2:00.
I never drink soda but I needed caffeine and could not leave work for a Timmy's run so I hit the vending machine.
Friday was just a nice relaxing night at home. I knew the next day that I had a fun "yes" day planned for Grayson and so we just took it easy. We had a minor meltdown because we took away a football that he took a huge bite out of (it was one of those nerf ones) and so he lost his mind. Then we had a conversation with Mike Wizowski in the bath tub.
It was early to bed for all of us.
Saturday Grayson and I slept in until 7:15!!! In out house that is huge! So we took it slow and headed out to the park. We got there at 8:30 and had the whole place to ourselves. He ran around, told me he was a big boy and that I could go sit on the bench and then proceeded to call me to him every 5 seconds to "hewp me up to dat big fing up der" lol boys.
We left there around 9:15 and headed to Kohl's to make some returns and pick up a few things. My child did not want to get in a kart. At all. So I decided to be a yes mom and let him push a kart. That lasted for all of .25 seconds and then he wanted to ride in the kart. So I put him in it. The basket part that is and it is a weird shaped kart and you couldn't see him in there. Some lady thought I was talking to myself until he popped his head up. Then we were getting ready to leave and well I had too much stuff to fit in the kart and he wanted to be carried so I was trying to juggle it all and stuff started to fall in the middle of the parking lot. The sweetest lady stopped and pushed my kart to my car helped me unload it and took the kart back in the store for me. God likes to show us that people are good and he is good all the time.
We had to run to the store for some chips and dip for dinner and Grayson wanted a minion cupcake and so I said yes and told him he could eat it after lunch. Then he wanted a fruit smoothie for lunch so we swung through the drive through and grabbed one for him.
He wanted to eat lunch on his stool and watch bubble guppies so I let him while I put away the stuff from the store. He ate half his cupcake and then went down for a nap. Saturday night was family movie night and relaxing.
Sunday was church, swimming at Chris and Tracy's, nap and then dinner at GiGi and Papa's house. Michael and I ended Sunday like we always do with ice cream.
I have to say that having a yes day with Grayson on Saturday was so nice and less stressful and really made me see how much I can make that little mans day by saying yes to simple things like letting him carry the things to set the table one at a time. Sure it takes longer but man he was so proud of the dinner table he set. I got this whole idea from Andrea and it is a game changer.
