Today, we may have spoiled our child.
She skipped her nap because she was so excited to go see the animals at Wildlife Prairie State Park. We had a blast there, as we always do!
We grabbed ice cream on our way home – before dinner. Oops! Lauren was so messy – I guess they don’t have kids sized cones at Cold Stone Creamery? But she loved her cookie ice cream.
We got home & played inside – and then Lauren wanted to go out to play. Her favorite thing in the whole word is a bucket, a shovel & dirt.
She had on this cute yellow sweater with a new navy blue sleeveless shirt underneath. Adorable.
We soon noticed that she was just getting dirtier & dirtier. And we just let her play anyway. She was pretty well covered in dirt (and ice cream, from earlier).
And I think she had a blast today. Ice cream for dinner ( M&M’s for a treat for going to the potty! Yay Lauren!) is something we have never done, and won’t make a habit of it, but man – they are only young once! And her clothes will wash.
This is my girl – this is who she is. She’s messy, she’s fun, and she’s about to be 3 next week. *sniff*
