Monday morning Robin and I woke up and thought that the girls and I could use a mental healthy day. These MDS’s are a long standing tradition in our family. Take a day every once in a while and just hang out and play. Of course, uber-responsible Eldest was worried that she would get in trouble for "cutting" school. Ahem, I do think that it is not "cutting" when your dad is with you. Unfortunately mom has one of the jobs thingy’s that require a 9-5 corporeal presence so it was just dad and the girls.
This is how the day went:
- Lounging in pajamas
- Lunch at Fuddruckers complete with yummy plastic cheese.
- Pretend to fall into the fountain
- Horton Hears a Who
- Eat Candy
- Pose with Kung Fu Panda
- Stop off at the church
- Jamba Juice break
- Thift store shopping
- BBQ leftovers
We teased the eldest a bit and told her that someday she would appreciate the fact that her parents where not so intense about school and that we highly valued re-creation and play
. I don’t think she believed us.
