Our Typical Saturday

Bagels and Barnes :>

This is not typical but Nui Nui picked out this dress she's wearing. I asked her what she wanted to wear and she said a dress— she doesn't (or want to) wear them often— but this day she even knew exactly which one she wanted. Dressing her was simple and I love when she gets all dolled up on the weekend when we spend time together. It's not that I like my kid to be dolled up but it's fun to see her in actual nice clothes (that she can still easily play in) but aren't her actual play or everyday clothes, which are pretty worn and repetitive. Honestly, though, whatever she wears, she still emits a radiant beauty.

Our Saturdays are simple and routine, nothing fancy. As I see it, it's just a time to relax and spend time together. I just realized as I am writing this, that we often eat al fresco, which is a treat I've been taking for granted— love al fresco dining. Recently, we've been spending our mornings on project errands— looking a bathroom stuff etc. That's followed by lunch and then Barnes, where we read, run around, play on the Thomas train set, talk to Elmo the puppet adhered to a book, and build lots of different things with Duplo legos. Hopefully after hours (literally) in Barnes, Nui Nui takes a nap and we walk around, or it'll be more legos and exploring new games and apps on the iPad. Our day usually concludes with either takeout or dinner out somewhere. Cheesecake is a regular go-to.

It's not an exciting life but it's my life. And it's filled with love, laughs, and smiles, so there's really nothing to complain about.

In case you're wondering, Nui Nui built this tower all by herself as I sat mindlessly engrossed in a magazine. I looked up to my amazement. It was really over a foot taller than her— either she stood on the floor seat or pre-fabbed a stack and put it on top. Either way, she's a pretty awesome genius :>
