Daddy came with us to the Toddler Story Time at the library Friday morning. We had a few errands lined up to accomplish that day but I asked him to go with us since we’re all going to town. And so my husband drove us to the library early because tickets to the Toddler Story Time go out quickly on Fridays. I though I won’t be able to get three tickets. But the librarian was very kind.
Because we were 15 minutes early (Story Time starts at 11:30 A.M.), my darling husband went to the bank and gassed up the car. And he came back just in time for us to get in the room. He settled himself in the back seats while our little princess and I were sat down on the carpet in the middle of the room. Kids and parents began participating with the opening song. The program for Toddler Story Time interests the young children because there’s singing, colors and shapes introduction, puppet show, and dancing. Also, there’s a puppet show this Friday and I was very glad that my darling husband was able to witness the activities.
My darling husband thought it was a very neat program for young kids. He said he is very proud of me and baby girl. She is really interested in reading books and getting social with other kids, too.
The grandparents came over Friday night to babysit the little one on Saturday. My husband and I went to Oklahoma for a weekend getaway as a post celebration for our 5th Wedding Anniversary. Darling daughter was very happy to see her Na-na and Paw-paw. The night the folks arrived, she did not want them to go to bed. 🙂
I was feeling a bit hesitant to go to Oklahoma without our little girl with us. That was the very first time my husband and I went on a trip without our little princess. But I guess it is also a preparation for me being away from my child for a short period of time because, before we know it, she will be in school in a year or two. Surely I am not ready of it. She’s in a preschool age where she needs to learn being independent sometimes. I am very thankful and lucky to have such a loving and caring in-laws. They love the little one so much. Even though she makes them exhausted from playing and activities, they adore her very much.
And that weekend was also the very first time I prepared things for the grandparents’ babysitting. I was confused where to start. My husband helped me with buying snacks and dinner for the folks. There’s food for the little one ready in the fridge so I just had to put them in food containers and told my mother-in-law what’s for lunch. Then I made the drinks ready for Saturday.
The only concern why they called Saturday afternoon was that, my darling daughter was coughing and there’s no cough medicine. I told my mother-in-law that I give the little one honey. Sure that helped.
I was missing my daughter so much. I couldn’t wait to go home. We got home before her bedtime and we gave her big hugs and kisses…she’s so happy to see us. The grandparents had a great time babysitting, too.
