The past few days have been quite enjoyable! With the help of my parents and their expert grandchild watching skills I was able to head down to Miami for a concert… not just one night, but two (Thee Oh Sees
! King Khan &The Shrines
! The Togas! &more!)!!! Not overnight or anything, but you know… drive south, drive north, repeat next day. I recommended we eat at Gigi’s
before the concert, everyone agreed, their stomachs were pleased…. and we even ended up there the second night for a midnight snack 😉 I was incredibly pleased to meet up with an old Miami friend the second night. It was pouring rain, and so incredibly crowded, but such a good time.
Eric came by a lot this weekend to hang out with M and I. He’s using me for my cooking, I know, but I don’t blame him. 😉 (I’m only kidding of course). We visited Stitch Rock
so Eric could drop off some new shirts to sell. We ate hot dogs (veggie dog for M and I) at PS561
. I wanted to make a few fun purchases, but Marlowe, for whatever reason, had a whole different agenda planned for the day and was on a stubborn, stubborn little rampage. The only thing she wanted was to climb up and down and up and down the stairs. She screamed (SCREAMED) if she wasn’t holding my hand to climb up and down. I just kept thinking, “I wonder if this is what mothers feel like when their kids throw tantrums in public?” I know she’s at a tricky age where she knows what she wants to do, but doesn’t really understand a lot. Meltdowns and tantrums will just have to be expected at times, but man, how not fun is that? Today was much easier. Eric and I were on a mission for bike parts for my trike, then we took the little lady to lunch, and then spent the day at my house so Eric could play with Marlowe and I could experiment with my new mixer…. and create a disaster of a mess, of course.
sleepies from stair climbing. &yes, I wore this shirt multiple days. The venue was smoke free and I have no shame.
*Minor public tantrum aside, Marlowe has been amazing lately. She is more fun each day. I love her growing up. She’s pretty awesome. Motherhood just gets better and better. I’m a lucky mama…. until she’s old enough to start dating.. then I dunno, I’m scared. But thats a long way away.
How was everyone else’s weekend? Good I hope! It’s been chilly and on and off rainy, but oh so nice! Happy Monday everyone… or 15 minutes to Monday, on a Sunday night 😉
