Thursdays are Girls Days! A day each week, where Daddy goes to work, and Buba goes to nursery and it leaves me and little Missy Moo to do whatever we want together. I love spending one on one time with my kids. To give them my full undivided attention, is so much easier and I get to notice more about them, separately. Not that I don’t love having both of them around but it’s nice once a week to have our girl time together.
Usually we go swimming, Missy Moo loves the water. She has been a natural fish since the day I first took her to lessons. Then we always go out to lunch just the two of us. I love taking my kids out to lunch just us. I did it with Buba and I do it now with Missy Moo and sometimes both. It’s fun to chat to them and they may not remember it when they grow up but I will. I am sure people find it weird that I sit there and talk to my 10 month old during lunch. But I don’t care. It’s our time together. And what mother doesn’t like showing her kids off in public too? lol Missy Moo is always ready to throw an onlooker a smile or flirt with the boy next to us.
Occasionally we let close friends join us but for the most part it’s just us two. It’s are special bonding time to be out and about doing girlie things. After lunch if there is time before Missy Moo falls asleep in her stroller for her nap we walk around a few shops as we are always eating at a retail park or the mall so plenty stores to have a nosy in. Mommy has been known to keep shopping while Missy Moo sleeps too, but shhh we won’t tell anyone that part.
This last Thursday we were unable to go swimming do to those pesky Chicken Pox that were popping out everywhere. Thought I would give it a week before I scare all the other Moms in the pool. It’s funny how kids are more contagious before breaking out but not after scabbing yet that’s when parents are most scared of it when they see you in public. I have got some rather stern angry mother looks this week wherever we have gone.
Needless to say I wasn’t going to let those angry Moms keep us in on our Thursday Girls’ Day. She had scabbed over therefore wasn’t contagious anymore, even though I decided against swimming, we still went out. It was a lovely sunny day so we took a nice walk to our local coffee shop, had our lunch together then came back home for some relaxing play time as Missy Moo still seemed a bit under the weather. She had her nap and soon perked back up.
She will never grow tired of “Peekaboo” or we say, “Where’s baby?” You should hear her infectious giggles when we play it. But only recently has she started to put things in front of her own face to play with me. It was hilarious when she kept using this jumbo puzzle piece as her face block! “Peekaboo”. Or in hindsight she probably was telling me enough photos already.
Either way, whether we are out or in, I love that our Thursdays are Girls Days! Time spent doing ordinary things together, but great memories to cherish forever.
