This week Ted was away for 3 days at a work conference so Maddy and I were on our own. We had a few challenges, the main one being that I typically leave at 5:30am to get to UW in Seattle for work. With Ted being gone we really had to problem solve to allow me to be at 2 extremely important meetings/presentations and Maddy being able to get to daycare and not have to wake up at 5am. Thank goodness for the best babysitter ever, who slept over Wednesday night so she could handle the morning routine on Thursday. On day 2 we needed a reward so we went and got frozen yogurt at one of those places where you get to put on oodles of toppings. We had a blast and it was just what we needed to break up the night.
Today Ted had to work (geez, is that guy ever home) so Maddy and I spent the day together. We got a lot of household things done (meals made for the week, house cleaned, laundry, etc.) but even managed to fit in some fun like gymnastics and COOKIES! I had bought some prepared dough a few weeks ago so we finally made them today. Maddy had a blast and even more so eating the cookies!
