Rachel and I had a good time with cars today. First we drove down to meet Daddy for lunch during his lunchbreak. The drive is about 30 minutes away and it is mostly a highway drive. At one point Rachel was doing her naptime “battle cry” as we like to call it, and I had to pull off the interstate to find her pacifier. After a few minutes of searching what seemed like everywhere, I found it. Somehow it became lost underneath her body, not sure how it got there but as soon as it was in her mouth she nodded off to sleep. We got back on the interstate and away we went for attempt number 2 to meet Dad! 🙂
We met at one of our favorite places to eat and had a great time. Tim and I were able to have a “mini-date” while she slept. Rachel was so surprised to see Daddy in the middle of the day! She woke up partway through lunch with a big smile on her face when she saw Daddy! Tim was drinking a milkshake, and despite Rachel’s pleas and attempts at grabbing his drink she was not allowed to have any! Sorry babe, not yet!
When we came home we played in her first “Corvette.” I took a delivery box from Amazon and drew a car on the sides (you’ll have to excuse the artwork, but as I tell my kindergarten students “It doesn’t matter how it looks, as long as you try your best!”). Very simple and inexpensive and it has kept her entertained for most of the evening! Some day when she’s older and wants this and that, I’ll have to remind her of the “simple days” when all she needed was a box and a blanket! 😉
These are the days….
