Despite the Cool Air, It Is STILL Spring Break

Mrs. Nurse Boy here.

Spring Break~ Day 3

Today, we stayed home and had some friends over for lunch. The mommies chatted (and chatted, and chatted, and chatted... don't you just love that?!),
the boys played the Wii,
and the girls played dress up.
(Are they cute or what?!?!)
We had a nice, relaxing time. What's not to like about an afternoon with some friends, some pizza, and some cookies??
Unfortunately, Sweet Pea seemed to turn into quite the "princess" once she slipped into her tutu. I am afraid she was channeling Cinderella's Step Sisters today. After our company left, we spent some "quality time" taking about how we treat our friends. Hopefully, we can change this behavior now before she finds herself staring in Mean Girls 2.
But, one thing Sweet Pea refused to change was her clothes. Yep, she even got in a little workout in her tutu. (I think she was trying to give me a hint. Especially when she asked me why the weights were dusty. Yeah, I'll get right on that... after I recover from the hour that I was robbed of this weekend all in the name of Daylight Savings.)
All in all, it was a fun day. After our company left, Dimples came over to me and said, "So is that all you guys do when you get together? Just talk and talk? That's IT?"
Yes, Dimples. That about sums it up. And, I love every minute of it!

Are those real weights??? She is lifting them with such ease that I can't believe they're real!

Not sweet pea? I don't believe it. Look at those smiles. Play dates are always fun!

I LOVE when my girlfriends are over!!!
That is a perfect day-talking, and talking, (and eating-), and talking...

I love some mommy time. How great that you could combine it with the kids getting together and playing. A win-win for everyone!

I never seem to have my girlfriends over, but I'm glad you found time. As for your little princess...I'm sure she's going to calm right now and realize she can't be "the princess" all the time, if you know what I mean! :-)

What's a princess without a little attitude?! Sounds like another fun day.

Oh, how I love a good talk fest.
And I think SP might be trying for the Let's Get Physical video- in a non-sexual way, of course.
Love those adorable kiddos in their costumes- mean girls or not. :)

Awe you are so lucky. I am glad you took some spring break time for yourself. I love to visit with friends. I don't get enough of that one on one girl chat though, unless Lil' is chattering it up.

I wonder if it is something in the fabric of "dress ups" that cause our little do no wrong girls to behave so rude. Maybe they are sewn with "pride" and it makes them all puffed up.

I saw some sunshine today!!!

Aw, poor Sweet Pea, we all have our off days. And girls are just complicated sometimes. She's certainly no Lindsay Lohan though, I don't think you have to worry. Pizza and cookies and chatting sounds like a perfect little gathering. :)
