"That sounds like a good Friday night."

Smoothie Tuesday!
Three is the most fun I have ever had. This kid of mine, she's awesome. She's going to move to a daycare that's within walking distance of our home at the beginning of July. To help with the transition, I instituted Smoothie Tuesdays so that when she starts at the new place, I can do something (now) familiar to her to keep some semblance of sameness. I think it's going pretty well so far...

The Husband is out at a former colleague's house. We were all supposed to go, but I decided I didn't want to go home from downtown, pick up the kid, head back downtown to meet The Husband, trek on public transit out to the other end of the city, at rush hour on a Friday, only to turn around and go back home after an hour for a reasonable bedtime. Damn, was I ever glad I declined when our city's transit woes hit this afternoon!

Besides, I like having my little person all to myself once in a while. In the car I asked if she wanted pizza or noodles for dinner. She requested pizza AND noodles. And french fries. She asked if she could have a story and a cuddle. I said yes, because who the hell could say no to that face? I suggested we have a story and some cuddles on the couch watching a Tinkerbell movie. In the rear view mirror I saw the huge grin as she replied, "That sounds like a good Friday night."

And it was.

Those little moments are the things that make it easier to swallow when they have a melt down over the favorite toy being damaged by their own doing.
