her time


taylor is in NY with her best girlfriend, daddy and kellen are in MA on their own advernture, nanny is on her way to PA, so casey and i held down the fort today with bayley (the dog). to top it all off the rain stopped and the sun shone. so we took advantage and road tripped it a bit. radio on, sweet summer songs {"Blister in the Sun" for the SECOND day in a row!}, she my trusty dance partner boppin' in the back. had to go to the farm anyway today to pick up our week's share of goodies, drove out of the way to enjoy some farm views, a roadside lemonade stand, the fruit stand, bananas for her and cherries for me. a flea market where a lady just up and gave her a stuffed flamingo, she loved that. there we hit the playground but the slides were too hot, then to mickey D's for 1 ice cream cone and 1 small fry, (lunch!) then home to make chalk drawings, now she is napping and i am enjoying our pictures from today. we never get this aloneness. it was good for us both. i love the little ones dearly but the noise level in here gets mighty high every day. power struggles over pirate hats and treasures, "no me do it" , "mine!", and the tears and wails and hurt feelings and me a torn momma. don't get me wrong, they love just as hard, but today, in the peace of just 1, it was nice. quieter, no tears. thank you casey shea for a really fun silly carefree day, love mommy.
