Loving The Friday

Finally got to Selfish Mother's Club on Wednesday night after some baby's daddy drama. Nothing a glass of cabernet and some good girl talk couldn't fix. The chips, salsa and goat cheese went over well. Yesterday morning I had a doctor's appointment and I was very brave so I decided to give myself the day off. I did some shopping and got some great deals. I love that courdoroys are back and those little casual blazers are so cute. Being a smaller size allows me more options which equals savings. I also picked up Keegan's Halloween costume for $15. Too precious for words, but you'll have to wait until Halloween!
During the afternoon I finally got his new tricycle together. Pieces that didn't quite fit, cursing and directions that involved me holding four pieces and simultaneously hammering. Who are they kidding? We took it for a test drive later and it was great. I had to show him how to rest his feet but then we were off and running. We took a big circle around the neighborhood and went home for dinner time. He was upset that he had to get off. This morning he pointed to the garage and said, "open." I assured him that we'd take a longer ride after school today. Let's hope the weather cooperates.
Oh and....

HE SLEPT THROUGH THE NIGHT IN HIS OWN CRIB!!!!
