Keeping it real in toddler town, the major highs from our week together were paired with some lows. It seems that the second half of Waverly’s two’s are a little more “terrible” than the first, she is as strong-willed as ever right now & it’s safe to say that listening isn’t her strongest asset.
She definitely saves her finest moments for me, I know it’s because that’s when she feels most comfortable (I’m honored, really), but OMG, we have had some moments lately. I’ll spare you most of the details, other than that morning I asked her not to color on herself only to turn around & see marker across her entire face. Apparently she drew up & down her legs, then wiped her nose and immediately touched her face. Or certainly one of my biggest mom fails to date, I was putting new sheets on her bed for naptime while she was in her playroom when she walked in to show me the HOLE (around her belly button) she cut into her new Zara sweatshirt. Apparently I left the scissors too low (we have our office supplies in a hanging rack on the back of the door), I guess we won’t be passing down that one to baby sister.
It’s a good thing those times are always followed by the happiest ones, Waverly really is nothing short of hilarious right now & she is so incredibly fun to be around. Our weather was warm for most of the week & we were able to fit in time at the zoo, on walks, & with bubbles. So many bubbles.
On Thursday of my break, my parents kept Waverly while my husband and I had a kid-free night & a day trip to Ikea! We missed her (and talked about her the entire time), it was way too quiet, but all in all, a great way to spend some together before we are parents to two! The drive was about eight hours overall, I ate my way through it & we definitely decided it was well-worth it. We ended up getting this dresser for the nursery, a raksog cart for Waverly’s room (we moved hers to the nursery because it matched better), & a latt play table for both girls that we plan to hack it the next month or so. It’s really about time Ikea came to Virginia Beach, I’m jealous of every single one of you who has one within a reasonable driving distance. 😉
Happy Tuesday to you all!
