Our Labor Day plan was to have no plans. We are in a super busy season of commitments right now, and a day of nothing seemed like the perfect idea. I had mentioned early in the day that it would be fun to break in our fire pit we got this summer with s’mores for dessert after dinner. When Brad’s sister asked if we wanted to go to the splash pad with them, we thought it would be fun to pair the two things together. So after having fun in the water, we headed back to dry off and get sticky. In retrospect, maybe the water part would have served us better after the sticky s’mores!
While the big kids have been having lots of fun things going on lately, Laurel seems to be missing out on blog posts. She seems to think she is just as big as Nate and Jilly, but she doesn’t get all of the extra fun things going on quite yet. I’m sure I’ll blink and I’ll be posting about her going to school, losing teeth, and running off to Husker games!
She is my faithful sidekick. I can’t seem to get more than about 5 feet from her before I hear a panicked, “Mom! Mom? Mom, where are you?!” Here’s a sample conversation from earlier today: (I had just hoped in the shower and Laurel pulled a chair to the bathroom doorway and was quietly sitting in it.) Laurel: I go play now Mommy? Me: Ummm, yes please!! (No audience needed while showering, thanks!)
As I’ve snapped pictures of the other kids lately, she has been right by my side with her little “me too, Mommy?”
