Spring Break

The girls and I are on spring break this week. So far we've already had one birthday party and one family playdate. For the rest of the break, I have planned: a few playdates with kindergarten classmates, baking homemade cinnamon-sugar muffins, a little girls' tea party, painting our fingernails and toenails (you would not believe how long Julia's been begging for this), a girls' lunch out at a restaurant (a big treat for my daughters), haircuts, and a trip up to the city to the Children's Museum. Everyone's excited.

The weather forecast is amazingly perfect--sun and 60 to 70 degrees all week!--so we'll also leave enough time for plenty of free play in the backyard, bike riding (both girls have little bikes with training wheels), sidewalk chalking, park/playground visits, and maybe even a picnic. I obviously won't get any writing done this week, but it's worth it to have full days with both my girls and plenty of time to have some adventures. If everything goes according to plan, I hope to run them ragged every morning so they'll nap nicely every afternoon. Because even the most fun day with small children requires a little break from them around 1 p.m.

Sounds like you are going to have fun. If you happen by a Walgreen's before you paint their nails, buy the $1.99 nail stickers. They'll love the little flowers and such.

Aw! Have FUN and be HAPPY this week.

(and yes, you just must buy The Happiness Project. It's so great!)
