A morning spent with cake and coffee, with a dear friend in an absolutely gorgeous log cabin in the woods... need I say more? My little guy was on his very best behavior and pulled out some pretty cute conversations and observations. I was so proud. She had some small dog toys that she brought out for him to play with. They belonged to her daughter who is away at college now. You already know how my little Abe LOVES little dog and cat toys. My friend told him that he could bring the dogs home with him if he promised to give them a good home. (a little bit of a toy story 3 moment there) He was thrilled!!! If you hadn't already figured it, yes he played with his new pets ALL day. He didn't even take a nap (that is NOT normal for my child (maybe it had something to do with cake in the morning)).
We decided in the evening that we ought to make a card for her to say thank-you for these special new puppies and for a lovely morning. My goodness three year olds are fun. I drew a few quick sketches of his new dogs and he colored them in (sort of (coloring is not his favorite thing)). Then he cut each doggie out and glued it onto the card. He told me what to write inside which I get a kick out of because I write it exactly as he says and reading it back is always super cute. We'll put it in the mailbox tomorrow. I wish every single day could be Saturday. No matter how frustrating a week might be the two of us always seem to find a lot of special fun and happiness on Saturday.
My budget for the month is $513.62 which leaves $263.41
