The day started off relatively easy enough. Some breakfast, some Curious George on the TV and a little bit of snuggling. The Peanut even let me entertain myself by giving her a new "look" for her hair . . .
(I totally copied this from another blogger)
After a little hair-styling session, we then decided to make a present for daddy! The Peanut is obsessed with dogs lately and lucky for me, I had an old Beagle calendar in my crafts box and so our hand cut-out flower project began . . .
Loving the glue-stick
Adding a message of love
The final product!
Hey, I am no kinder garden teacher and it was the best I could come up with. She loves having her hands traced and now apparently loves glue-sticks . . . which I have conveniently "lost" so as not to come home and find anything else glued together in our house.
She really enjoyed making this for Vans . . . and he deserved it. He'll probably kill me for posting the following photo but it only shows how great he is with her . . . he even played My Little Pony with her the night before . . .
She wouldn't let him do the hair though. Apparently she has caught onto the fact that pony tails and hair clips are not his specialty . . . helping out the garage and doing some real "man work" however IS his specialty.
Look at me mom wearing my "work boots"
Overall the day was a bit rough. I wasn't feeling well and the Peanut is going through a transition at school to a new classroom which has resulted in a little potty training regression. Four loads of laundry on my sick day home was not exactly what I had in mind. Again, lesson learned. Yet solo time at home with her is rare for me so it was still worth it.
