Today was one of those great mommy-daughter days. It started after I got home from teaching 6am Bootcamp and Anna woke up calling “helloooo Mommy helloo” around 7:30am.
From that point on, I had a little mini-me on my hands. I showered while she brushed her teeth and read books on the bathroom floor and then we were off.
First stop was to the doctor’s office for a well-check and a flu shot. The appointment went late causing us to miss our playgroup which was a bummer.
But since Anna didn’t seem to affected by the shot, I decided to stop at a few faves on the way home.
She helped by pointing to things we needed and naming them: “appaw, gape, O’s, cacker, yo yo” I could go on…
When we got home, she helped me unpack the groceries into the family room.
That’s when she noticed we needed a few more things from the “store” and offered to pick them up herself.
Obvious necessities like: a remote control, another remote control, a mini bottle of water, and a few books.
After unloading them into a kitchen cupboard with the pans – where they belong, she started decorating the house for fall. I have clearly been slacking since we were out of town.
How could I have forgotten to put the pumpkins on the puzzle wheels?
She paused for a quick bite of apple and a great big “cheeeeese” then it was back to work making a sign for the fridge.
When that was done, she wanted to help with the dinner party. She immediately pointed out that I had not done a very good job decorating the silverware and they needed a little pumpkin flair.
So she set to work again.
Yes, if you come over for dinner you may wonder if your silverware has been on the floor. It’s a possibility. Luckily, I clean often with natural cleaner.
And then finally, after a hard day at work she greeted our dinner company with hugs and kisses.
Best helper ever.
