what. a. week.
it started off raining and forced us to play inside and ended up with a full day at the happiest place on earth. throw in a little crown braid action and i think we officially accomplished it all.
when it rains (or doesnt rain) lex requests to bake. she fancies herself quite the helper. but when i turn my back on her to do something like defrost the butter she’s spreading “fairy dust!” and having a grand old time. and since i fancy myself the coolest mom ever i bit my tongue and let her have her fun.
let me present to you the crown braid. or at least my first attempt at the crown braid. i might need to hone my “finishing skills” by actually maybe reading a tutorial. thankfully two year olds cant see the back of their head. because lex also firmly believed it was a pink crown. all i did was inside out french braid her hair starting at one side. ridiculously easy. . . except maybe the finishing part?
my mom, sister, and i have been planning on hitting the big D for WEEKS. but we kept getting rained out. so thursday we FINALLY made it to the park for a fun filled day. yes we stayed the WHOLE DAY. it was hours longer than lex and i usually last, but with the extra hands the day flew by with zero tantrums, naps, tears (except when we got to the front of the line at the buzz ride to discover it was closed!), and a whole lot of smiles.
lex even got to meet the infamous tinkerbell. we’ve been looking for tinkerbell shoes in lex’s size since halloween when we spotted the light up pom-pom goodness at the disney store. but alas, no little kid sizes to be found. which lex lamented to tinkerbell for like 10 minutes. thankfully tink is a sweet fairy and ate it right up.
and now i’m off to a cookie party at lex’s last day of school for christmas break. meaning i get her to myself for TWO WHOLE WEEKS. im excited now, but i’m sure come january i’ll be counting down the hours until i get my few hour break.
