Maile was a little bit difficult to deal with this weekend, because she's teething. We think. Anyway -- Despite her iffy mood, and the fact that it was scheduled during her regular naptime, we decided to take Baby Girl to the neighborhood pumpkin hunt and magic show on Saturday. Sometimes, the best thing we can do with our fussy little, is to get her outside!
While there wasn't a pumpkin to be found, there was an awful lot of candy, and some cute toys, too. We typically don't allow Maile much refined sugar, but after her first find, we gave her a (blueberry!) Dum Dum from her bag as a special treat. Surprisingly, she also really enjoyed the magic show ... and even tried to make a break for the magician at one point.
As it happened, some fresh air was a godsend this weekend. Also, thank you to Mr. M who took charge of our Monkey after the activities, for some quality time on the slide, and hide-and-go-seek with Dada, so I could socialize a bit with some of the other parents. Whatever would we do without fathers?
