Ina had a big day yesterday.
First, she went to the zoo - fully ready with pig-tails and my swimsuit strap as her “nwekwas."
When I picked her up from daycare we headed straight to the farmer’s market in Raymore. I am happy to live in Belton, but I quickly discovered that the Raymore farmer’s market is >>> the Belton farmer’s market. Sorry Belton.
We picked up some peaches, cantaloupe, broccoli, grass fed ground beef, a free range organic chicken, a bow for Ina, and a plant for Dan. This will likely be a weekly stop for us from now on.
On our way home we stopped at Aldi to pick up a few things. As we were walking in, Ina said, “walk” and started wiggling out of my arms. We had 3 things to get, so I thought we skip the cart, and put her down on the ground next to me.
She thought she was pretty big stuff walking with me through the store and we made it through the chip / cracker / raisin section without her saying anything. I picked up some guacamole, handed it to her and asked, “Ina, do you want to hold the guacamole?"
She grabbed it from my hands with the biggest smile on her face, turned to the store and proudly announced that she had, “Mickey-mole.” Of course, everyone in the store listened and laughed, which made her say “Mickey-mole” about 50 more times. By the time we made it to the check-out aisle, Ina made 10 new friends.
Our last stop of the night was at the park for small group. We had burrito bowls. I made slow cooker Mexican beef with cilantro lime brown rice and everyone else brought the toppings. I was so happy to see someone brought baby spinach - it was surprisingly good mixed in there.
Unfortunately, after the rest of the day, Ina didn’t do so well at the park. There were many “No’s” and tantrums. She definitely earned her sleep yesterday.
My day wasn’t near as exciting as Ina’s but I did go to spin class over lunch.
I am hoping that one day I will like riding a bike.
I hope you have a blessed day!
