With all the birthday stuff last weekend, I neglected to write about Mother's Day. . .I do hope you all had a good one!
Pat was scheduled to work3-11, Pat's Mom was getting out of the hospital, and Aidan had hockey at 3:50, so our plans were loose at best. We did make the decision to sleep in and get going for the day at a leisurely pace. Pat slept until after 10:00, so I kept Aidan quiet and fed him his favorite, Fruit Loops and Orange Juice for breakfast. Not super healthy, but it didn't require a lot of work and he eats a huge bowl of it without any fuss.
Pat and Aidan left about 11:00 to go and help get Pat's Mom home and I was to meet them at Grandma and Grandpa's for lunch of sandwiches or something. I would then take Aidan to hockey and Pat would go to work. Seemed like a good plan!!
I left the house close to noon and headed over, but forgot my phone!! When I got to Grandma and Grandpa's, I called Pat only to discover that his Mom wasn't released yet. It was planned for her to go, just not yet. So, I waited around for a bit. By 1:30, we realized the plan wasn't going to work and I needed to go and get Aidan so I could feed the poor kid some lunch.
So, it ended up being a slice of cheese pizza and chocolate milk at the Ice House while watching Scooby Doo on the TV there.
After hockey, Aidan and I had some left overs for dinner and then watched a movie. A lot of running around, but still a quiet day, and not really all bad. It wasn't what I had planned, but I still got to spend some nice time with my kiddo.
And, the boys gave me a nice bird feeder with food that will attract these beautiful yellow finches.
This weekend, Pat is on the midnight shift, so Mom duty will include keeping Aidan quiet but busy. I see trips to Costco and Target in our weekend schedule!!! I really don't plan to do much else. And next weekend is Memorial Day weekend--three days off!! With the pool opening, we will be sleeping late and then lounging around the pool!
