Two kids on scooters and then one tires and is in the stroller with Amelia while the other (Micah) keeps riding and asking me every few minutes how much further we have until we get to the bookstore. We finally get to Barnes and Nobles and I quickly wonder if we’ve made a mistake as all three go different directions in the children’s section…I’m feeling a tad frazzled. We go upstairs to sit in the cafe, Ellie carrying her treat book she earned a few weeks ago and I wonder how long we’ll last. But the book is a charm…a Dora book with small, plastic figures to play with on the back page. Perfect! We’re set! Amelia plays with a straw, I read a magazine and sip a frappuccino and the kids play. It lasted all of twenty minutes or so before I decided it was time to go while all was still smooth sailing but I’ll take twenty minutes anytime!
We get home, the girls go down for naps while Micah plays some PBS kids games and as I’m eating lunch, a small earthquake rocks New York City and my lunch rattles on the table while I sit in disbelief. An earthquake in New York? What a surprise!
And each day brings its own little adventures!
Micah copied this picture from a library book this morning while I was getting ready. I love it!
