I always say that, when solo-parenting on a weekend, the key is a busy schedule. No sitting around complaining about being bored, arguing with one's sibling, or otherwise making the solo parent sigh heavily and pine for a replacement and a brief respite.
Which is why we have four special things planned for Saturday: a trip to the weekend outdoor market, a playdate at our house, attendance at our local alpaca farm's annual open house, and an inaugural visit to Cherry Berry, a frozen yogurt chain that just opened a branch in our town.
Oh yes. Frozen yogurt in numerous flavors and a whole bar of mind-boggling, eye-goggling toppings to choose from. I am down with that.
