A Date Night: Coloring Easter Eggs

Now that I'm working "full time" AND competing in Lake Idol on Thursday nights AND trying to juggle everything else that comes with marriage and motherhood (a.k.a bills, grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning, and laundry), I have found that the rare times I have alone with Emma are very few and very precious. Emma loves to have "girl days" as she calls them. Those days when it's just she and I, and no Daddy. We don't always do something special, but she loves for us to spend time together, even if I'm just cleaning the house or running to the grocery store. She's definitely a mommy's girl :)

Well, thanks to a hectic week, I hadn't really gotten to spend alot of time with her besides feeding her dinner, giving her a bath, and putting her to bed. So, last night, we sent Daddy over to Uncle Geoff's house and we decided to color our Easter eggs.

So all decked out in her Sleeping Beauty costume, my little princess colored twelve of the most beautiful eggs. She was a little impatient waiting for the colors to dissolve, but within no time she was coloring her eggs and impatiently waiting for them to dry so she could put the sticker faces on them.

Her finished product looked great, and I am continually amazed at how big she's getting! It's hard to believe that in a few short weeks, she's going to be four years old! Geez! Where does the time go?! Anyway, the eggs are now nestled in our refrigerator waiting for the Easter Bunny to come and hide them. I think the Easter Bunny also picked up a few things for her Easter basket yesterday which I'm pretty excited about...even though it is ridiculously clost to her birthday to be buying anything BUT birthday presents. Too bad I'm a sucker ;)

All in all, it was a wonderful Emma and mommy date night. After we washed our hands (which are still stained), we enjoyed ice cream cones while we talked about her day at school, and the crazy games she plays at recess with her best friend, my nephew Noah. I so love when she comes out of her shell and actually tells me about her day. It warms my heart, because I know those times when it's just she and I are special to her, and for a moment, I actually feel like I'm doing a good job and being the best mother I can be.

I'm excited for Easter this weekend! I hope the rain stays away! I'm on the hunt for a new Easter-ish outfit today, because I've worn the same thing the last three years. I feel like I'm due. So, after work before Lake Idol tonight, I will be hitting the mall and enjoying every minute of my night. Go me! Stay tuned tomorrow for pictures or maybe a video of my performance tonight! I actually got a good slot this week, so maybe tomorrow I won't be so dead to the world ;)

Happy Thursday, everyone!
