My kid has a much more active social life than I ever imagined. Before he was born I told myself I wouldn't over-schedule him and wear him out. But now that he is here, I never want him to miss out on anything fun. If we sit home all day he goes off the rails with boredom. He isn't in school yet so I feel an obligation of sorts to ensure he has fun stuff to do.
I really overdid it this week, but not for him, for me. My body is so sore I can barely move! As a consequence of our busy days, he has not napped all week so we have butted heads quite a bit, but one pre-birth promise I have actually kept is that our lives would not revolve around napping. We are definitely flexible!
Here is an exhausting run down:
Monday - Gymnastics followed by lunch with friends. Then we visited family and ran errands.
Tuesday - We went to Toddler Tuesday at the aquarium followed by lunch and shopping.
Wednesday - Kindermusik class and errands.
Thursday - Kindermusik class, lunch with friends, errands.
Friday - Disney on Ice, visit to Gas Monkey Garage, lunch at restaurant of same name, visit to my mom's office, errands, out to eat for dinner.
Saturday - Easter event that included face painting, bounce house humping, train riding, egg hunting, waiting for a balloon animal, meeting the Easter bunny and playing at the park where the event was located. Then we ran more errands. Today I was also not lazy (for once) and cleaned out his closet and did a bunch of laundry.
I feel like death and next week is already booking up. Yay/boo.
