It shouldn't come as a surprise but I wanted to get it on the record. My wife is awesome. I love my kids but I am not wired to stay at home and do all the mom stuff on a day-to-day basis.
Mickie worked a 12 hour shift today so Mia, Jace, and I hung out. We started off great. Jace slept till about 8:30 and took his bottle like a champ when he woke up. I got everyone dressed and packed in the car and we headed into town to do some grocery shopping. We needed to hit both Wal-Mart and Target for some essentials. Both kids were awesome. Jace slept most of the time and Mia helped me find everything I couldn't see on the bottom shelf. She even tried to sneak some snacks into the cart...
Because of the coupons Mick had sent along we saved almost $30 off our bill. That rocks.
Speaking of rock... After the groceries were bought we made a detour to Best Buy. I have some gift cards still from last Christmas and was finally going to purchase the new Guitar Hero. Unfortunately they were completely sold out - but only for the Wii. There were plenty for every other game system. We still had a good time though. Mia had a blast playing the drums on the demo set.
We got home, I fed Jace again and Mia and I played Mario Kart for awhile. I was very impressed at how much she has improved. She can actually complete a lap and there were several times that she didn't come in last against the computer. I would say that she'll probably be beating me soon but I wouldn't let that happen...
While Jace took his afternoon nap I put up Christmas lights...in 5 degree windchill. That was fun... I'll put up some pictures when they are all done.
After we had some supper, Mia and I cleaned the house and were all ready for mom to get home.
Fun day - but not one I would want to do daily. I love my wife.
