Recently, Little Bit and I had the opportunity to spend a weekend by ourselves. It just so happened that all the boys were at a Boy Scout Jamboree, and Little Bit had a Girl Scout carnival to attend. I decided to use several gift cards that I had received over the past year. Gift cards that I would not do on my own, but with a little girl by my side, would be perfect.
The weekend started with an afternoon appointment to get a manicure and a pedicure. The pedicure was hilarious because Little Bit is extremely ticklish, and would not stop laughing the entire time. I think the specialist was slightly annoyed, as he decided just to paint her toe nails. She was done in ten minutes, and sat there in the massage chair to wait for me. It was pretty funny to watch her in the chair. She has never sat in one before, so the giggling continued until she was silent. She became so relaxed that I think sleep was on its way.
The next day was spent at the Girl Scout carnival. We had a great time together and her friends. She loves the Girl Scouts, and even though they may not be as outdoors as I would like, there are a ton of crafts, which is right up her alley! The day was long, but so much fun.
Finally we went to a local painting pottery store. We spent four hours painting our matching plates!!! Four Hours!!! It was so worth it. We relaxed and talked about so many things.
That weekend was so wonderful and just what we needed to continue our bonding. Things have been rough for her lately, but when we have times together, I think it helps her recover from the tough parts a little quicker.
Hope you all are having a wonderful week!
