our yes day
April 16, 2015
Over spring break, we had a Yes Day. Or rather, the kiddo had a yes day. I had a day of saying yes. IT WAS VERY HARD FOR ME. I was always asking and second guessing her by saying, 'Are you sure about that? Is that really what you want to do? Are you sure you don't really want to do this instead?' My kiddo had to tell me to take a chill. That's also VERY HARD FOR ME.
Anyway, our yes day was very nice and I highly recommend them. As long as plane tickets or buying puppies or rodents aren't involved. Basically, as I suspected, what my kiddo really wanted was a day of my focused attention, and the emphasis was on fun activities she wanted to do with me, as opposed to me taking her to Target to Buy Stuff. (we did go to a local toystore to buy Something Very Small - it turned out to be this thinking putty in an extra small size, which apparently is all the rage amongst her 3rd grade class.)
'Ever After High - Royals and Rebels' activity book, I apologize for not showing off the cover.
But then again, if we had left out the frosting, we wouldn't have had our fun tint-the-frosting apple red project. Because they were supposed to be 'Ruby Red Apple Cupcakes'. As you can see, we had white, pink and a gross looking red. Hurray! I'm not sure how to make red frosting look attractive.
'The Sound of Music' for the very first time! (for her) She loved it. OF COURSE. Who doesn't? (don't tell me if you don't.) Andrew has never seen it. And he told me he doesn't think Rodgers & Hammerstein is as good as Rodgers & Hart. It's at times like that, I begin looking around for some kind of striking implement.....
