A little insight into a Mommy trick – when Daddy travels, try to make the evening hours (aka the “witching hours”) pass as quickly as possible. Sometimes this is accomplished with television. Sometimes this is accomplished with reading books. Sometimes this is accomplished with wine (I was out of wine – um….how does THAT happen???).
Tonight, this was accomplished by an impromptu trip to the park (okay, I had actually promised a trip to The Children’s Museum, without first checking to see when it closed. Yowza – rookie mistake. And yes, before you say it, I realize I am no longer a rookie).
This particular trip was made even more fun when it turned into an impromptu playdate with the Colby ladies. In fact, this was our SECOND park playdate with them of the day! The only problem is that Paige is beginning to expect to see “Kelly Colby” (she always uses her first and last name), Audrey and Lu everywhere we go. Luckily, a majority of the time we do!
