So 3 things were necessary for a successful evening last night: Dinner, Bath, & Bed.
1. Dinner: Probably the worst of the evening. We’re in that phase where Chloe doesn’t like anything new. Plus it was here that Rae and Ali took off to meet up with ‘The Girls.’ Like every few minutes Chloe would ask, “Momma?” I’d remind her that, “Momma went ‘Bye Bye.'” And she’d get up and head to the door and say, “Bye bye!” So that whole process took the bulk of dinner. Then she took off to play on the playpen/slide dealio we have for her where I’d feed her each time she slid down the slide or jumped off the ‘climb wall.’
- Grade: C+
2. Bath: Surprisingly we got in and out without a hitch! I did douse her face with water on accident while trying to rinse her hair, but no crying! We did experience a slight snafu at the end. After drying off and getting lotioned up before putting on her pjs, in what scientists would call a ‘nano-second,’ she happened to pour water on her by picking up a toy filled with water from the bathtub! So that slowed things down a bit but still a successful bathtime!
- Grade: A-
3. Bedtime: Pippity poppity show me the zoppity! Kiddo passed out while walking her around her room in less than 15 minutes!
- Grade: A+
Bonus Points awarded for: Reading a book & completing a puzzle while watching an episode of Little Einstein!
Overall score for the evening: A
Go Dad! My night got spoiled by the electricity going on 15 minutes before LOST started and coming on with 5 minutes left in the show so I’ll have to watch it online today 😦
No spoilers please! I can’t wait to watch it but Thursdays don’t lend too much spare time.
