The boys go to preschool for an hour a day, four days a week. Their day off is Wednesday, and so yesterday I decided that I’d bring them to the McDonald’s with the play place for a while. I knew they had wi-fi there, and I thought perhaps I could get some blogging done while the guys tired themselves out.
They’d already eaten breakfast with their sisters at 7am, but by the time we got out of the house it was close to 9:30. I bought them each one of the yogurt parfaits and an orange juice, and Dylan ended up eating both because Ryan only wanted his juice. I didn’t know whether or not they’d want to eat, although I knew they’d want a drink. But boy, did they play!
There were several other kids there around their age, and they had a blast. We were there so long, that several families came in and out. I didn’t get any work done, not one thing. I booted up my laptop and ended up just closing it a few minutes later. And although my morning didn’t go quite as planned, it was totally fine because instead of blogging, I spent most of the time talking to a sweet L&D nurse who was there with her granddaughter.
Sometimes being a stay at home mom I forget how nice it is just to sit and chat with another adult. All the kids were so well behaved, it was almost like a a grown-up outing- you know, if I imagine myself removed from the McDonald’s play place and at a coffee shop or something.
Overall, I think we spent close to three hours there. Afterwards, we ran to Target for a couple things, and both twins stayed so nice in the cart. Sometimes they’ll whine, or fight over who sits in the seat and who sits in the basket part. I think they were pretty worn out at this point.
On the way home, Ryan asked for coffee and a donut. I think he misses our frequent Dunkin Donuts runs. Coffee hasn’t agreed with my belly for the most part this pregnancy, and I haven’t been craving sweets (Who am I?!). But I knew they had the pumpkin flavored coffee now, so I thought I’d give it another shot. Both boys picked their donuts and dug in.
It was a good Wednesday. How was your day? Do those of you that stay at home with the kids feel out of touch with adults as well?
