Sadly, Bradley has to work today… But since we’re headed home to the Okanagan at the end of the week, we’ve set aside a day to celebrate our own little Father’s Day while we’re there. Grae and I did manage to sneak out of the house this morning (in pajamas and gumboots no less) at 6:30 a.m. to retrieve Papa’s favourite hot drink and breakfast treat from our local cafe/bakery. We stayed a while, allowing Brad to sleep in, and when he awoke, he was very confused to find us at the table with our goodies all laid out. Yay for little surprises.
Happy Father’s Day, to the best Papa Miss G could ask for.
Today Bradley turned 30 (I love the couple of months a year that we’re the same age). We’re pretty low-key about adult birthday celebrations around here, but to celebrate, Miss G got to stay up late to have a family dinner and open a couple of little presents once her Papa got home from work.
This may have happened too… Her first ever taste of a chip. *Gasp!*
Oh. my. god. My heart is exploding from the cuteness overload. Not only are my plaid-clad loves all matchy matchy with their button-ups, jeans, and sneaks, but Miss G has got Bradley’s silly poses and serious expressions down to a tee.
I spent my day out in surrey teaching the most lovely group of Grade Four students and came home to my two loves playing outside in the sunshine… Ahhh… Nothing like sunshine, green grass, cherry blossoms, and a little monkey climbing on your back.
Today was a bit of a rough day for Papa and Grae… The power was out for several hours in the morning, Gracen didn’t want to eat what Papa had prepared for lunch, and then when nap time rolled around she coughed and coughed in her crib until the kids who live downstairs came home for lunch at freight train volume and ended all hopes of an afternoon sleep. Needless to say, there were no videos for this working Mama (whew – two work days in one week!)… I was, however, surprised when I found this little gem on my camera tonight:
Apparently snack time took place in a basket today? Who knows, but I’m sad I missed out! It looks much more fun than scrambling around in a day plan-less classroom of 21 anxious-eyed first graders.
Gracen LOVES jobs. And by that, I mean she actively searches them out. She finds the tiniest pieces of paper and promptly delivers them to the trash can, retrieves your orange peel before you’re even done peeling and marches it to the compost bucket, and reorganizes her books in a neat and tidy fashion just for fun. (Whose child is this anyways? I don’t know where she gets this stuff!)
So today, during Mama’s second day of subbing, Papa taught Grae how to do laundry… The clean, dry laundry comes out and goes in the bin…
