We haven't had any one on one time in a while, so I decided we should make this morning a special one. I started out by polishing her nails. She chose pink for her toes, purple for her fingers. I have to say that doing someone's nails is not easy when their younger brother keeps hopping on and off the bed. At first, Fred wanted me to do his nails, too, then when I got the brush close enough to his hand, he jerked it back and said, "No thank you". :) I think Daddy was happy about that one.
Can you tell she was getting pampered today?
She finally chose her accessories, for the most part.
The finished product, my Fancy girl.
After the story hour, and after the crowd thinned, several of the parents and I let our girls explore the books and dress up things while all talked about how we should certainly do a play date in the near future - with or without the kids. One of the moms even suggested starting a book club, and asked me to spread the word. Why yes, I think that would be wonderful!
Being a special day, Ethel and I went out to lunch. We don't eat out often. I think the last time we ate out was possibly on our vacation back in September. Ya, eating out is a huge treat in our house. Ethel was thrilled that she could have waffles and breakfast stuff for lunch when I took her to IHOP. Her eyes just about popped out of her head when she saw the "Funny Face" on the menu. A chocolate pancake decorated like a face with whipped cream, cherries, and chocolate chips. Wow. A sugar cookie and now this! On top of that, I let her order a chocolate milk! Holy cow! What could be better????
Fred and Daddy had their own time together today, having lunch at a greasy spoon in town. Fred was more than thrilled when he saw that Ethel had brought him a balloon.
My princess and my prince.
It was really a great day.
