This is my last year before both kids are in school all day, every day. Ella is attending preschool three full days a week. Going into this school year, I decided that Tuesday, Thursday and weekends are going to be special days with my kids. I will try to get the majority of my work done while the kids are at school so I can enjoy the days that my kids are home with me. Hence, Girl’s Day was born. The thought quickly grew on Ella. When she wakes up in the morning, she says, “Is it Girl’s Day?” If I reply “yes”, she shouts, “yay!” Some days we spent the day at home painting and riding our bikes to the park. Other days, we visit Paradise Pond and have a nice lunch at Jason’s Deli. Ella always orders soup. The staff always says, “what will she be having?” They are always surprised that a little girl loves soup.
On this specific day, Ella and I had cupcakes and tea at Let’s Pretend Tea Parties, a little girl’s tea room and boutique. Ella loved having her nails and hair done, and she even got a touch of makeup for the special occasion. She was mesmerized with the cubes of sugar. She wasn’t too crazy about her cupcake, but she did love eating the sugar cubes. If you live in Grapevine, TX, and have a little girl, I highly recommend a tea party at Let’s Pretend Tea Parties.
Of course, we call days that AJ is home Girl’s and Boy’s Day. We can’t leave my little man out.
I am so thankful for these sweet moments and also thankful that I am aware of how fleeting these special times are together. In the blink of an eye, my babies will have babies of their own. I hope they continue the tradition of Girl’s and Boy’s Day.
