The weather has finally decided to switch gears to spring here in PA so we’ve been able to enjoy a lot of great time outside. Having a kid who LOVES the outdoors is hell during the winter so now that warmer temps have made an appearance, we’re outside as much as possible. One of Maddy’s favorite things to do is blow bubbles. It’s such a simple pleasure, blowing bubbles. Kids love bubbles. I wish anything in the world made me as happy as Maddy is when she’s outside playing in the suds.
If you’ve been following the blog or my Facebook page for any amount of time, you know that I’m a huge Star Wars nerd. This love of mine has fortunately trickled down to Maddy, which is about the best thing since sliced bread. This past weekend was the Steel City Comic Con which gave us an opportunity to celebrate geekiness in all its glory. Truthfully, Maddy didn’t have a great time. She loves watching the movies and playing with her figurines but get her up close and in person with people dressed up in costumes as the characters? Nope, she’s not having it. I mean, acting like a cat trying to climb a tree (ahem, me) to get away from dogs doesn’t like it. Having said this, Michael and I had a great time and I even made some new friends!
Most nights end up this way: I rush from work to pick up Maddy. I drive through Pittsburgh traffic to get home. I’m rushing around to cook dinner, take care of the pets and all the while, keep the kiddo happy. Nine times out of ten this results in a meltdown of some sort SO wine to the rescue!
But I digress.
