Even though I’m totally wiped right now I have to tell you about my Sensational Sunday! It all started with a 5K run. I’m 2 months into my training and today I had a 5k scheduled. Carrie and I decided to run the same 5K route we did on the Jan 1 Resolution Run so we could compare times. I’m totally psyched as I shaved almost 2 minutes off the run! Check it out!
I’m not going to lie, it was a tough run! BUT it totally set the tone for my Sunday. I was feeling great! Upon my return, we made lunch and the husband and I decided to take the toddler roller skating.
Long story short… We’ve recently been taking the toddler Bowling and the husband said we needed to find something else we can do with the little guy. I blurted out ROLLER SKATING. Partly as a joke but when I found a rink just a few miles away I got totally psyched. I haven’t strapped skates on in at least 20 years (there may have been an attempt in college but I won’t go there.)
It was like riding a bike. I was whipping around in no time! I can’t say the same for the husband. LOL He warmed up after a bit but the first hour was a little shaky. The toddler? Well he was ALL smiles even though he had a death grip on both my hands. After a little while he said, and I quote, "I can’t take it anymore," in the cutest toddler voice ever. So we took his skates off and let him play some video games for a bit. The funny thing was he had more fun giving me high fives as I lapped a few times during the ‘adults only’ skate. Yes! they still do themed songs! (Only girls, only couples, trios, etc.)
Here he is not wanting his picture taken but check out the skates! :)
After we got our skating fill we decided on Hot Fudge Sundaes from McDonald’s. It just seemed like a natural ending to our afternoon. :)
After we got home I got a bit of work done and then started dinner. The toddler is going through SUCH a phase at dinner time. I want to just strangle him. Every night seems to be a battle. I’m not a food forcer so I always allow him to leave the dinner table as long as he tried a bite of everything on his plate. HOWEVER, I leave the plate there and when he asks for a snack I tell him his dinner gets eaten first. Let’s just say in the last 3 days he’s eaten his "chicken" (tonight it was tilapia) approximately 3 hours after later.
After dinner we caught Arachnophobia on TV and the toddler was GLUED to the screen. He’s always had this morbid fascination with spiders. So the husband and I decided to see if he could handle the movie and we watched it as a family. The toddler was SOOO cute! Asking where the spiders came from and telling me what his favorite parts were. It was the first time a movie (besides animation) has held his attention that long. Here we are snuggling on the couch. :)
Then it was B E D time! It sounds bad but I’m always totally ready for the toddler to go to bed. Don’t get me wrong we had a great day! But it was long and notice… there was no nap mixed in there. So mom needed mom time!
After stories the husband and I resumed our positions on the couch to get our computer time in and watch our 2 favored New Zealanders. Now…. I’m writing this. What a day! RIght? ok… Off to bed. :)
