zelda and i had an impromptu picnic last night for dinner. it was nice to get outside during a break in the rain, especially since z spent the whole day at daycare yesterday while i had to work. we were without papa since sunday, but we survived mama having three classes and repainting a living room wall, plus general toddler hijinks and new bed time shenanigans where zelda now opens her door and gets out of her room. it’s good to have papa back home. whew! i’m a tired mama that needs to rest up before the weekend birthday celebration.
