4/26-4/29/18- Baylor and I went on his last field trip for the year. It was billed as a “farm field trip” but it was to the state fairgrounds where they had some hands on learning experiences for kids to learn about food. Baylor was quick to tell me “this isn’t a real farm!” He was pretty unimpressed from the moment we got out of the car. His favorite part was getting to make his own mini pizza because have I mentioned my kid loves to cook? But as far as the other activities- planting seeds, petting animals, “doing farm chores” goes- totally no interest. And they pissed him off by giving him a dollar for selling the (fake) milk and eggs at the “store” after doing the fake chores he didn’t want to do in the first place and then promptly taking it away. Apparently they didn’t think a 3 year old would understand what a dollar is but he was inconsolable because “I worked hard for my dollar and I didn’t get to spend it!” 😒 So thanks, stupid field trip. Next time, we’re just going to a real farm.
The good news is that it is FINALLY getting warm enough to spend time outside. And by that I mean, last week was in the 40s and this week is in the upper 70s and low 80s. So much for spring. But we’re taking advantage and spending lots of time at the playground, playing outside, blowing bubbles, and driving Baylor’s jeep.
On Friday evening, Michael and I went to go see Wicked which was WONDERFUL. I was so glad to see that Michael enjoyed it as much as I did. AND he finally got a weekend off!! We reorganized our storage area, worked a bit on a couple of other projects, played some board games with Baylor (one of his favorite things to do right now) and just relaxed. Baylor isn’t feeling great- he’s got a runny nose and a cough and a bit of an upset tummy so we’re hoping that he’s feeling better quickly since we’re heading to Florida next weekend! He wasn’t feeling so bad that he couldn’t pick his Mommy a beautiful flower when he went outside to play. We put it in a small vase on the kitchen table which made him beam with pride. “It’s like a restaurant, Mommy!“
