We are very fortunate in that James gets to come home for lunch most days. Elizabeth lives for this, especially as most of the morning is spent with Mommy trying to keep Amelia asleep when Elizabeth wants her to wake up and play.
Today we were out on the porch waiting when he came home. Elizabeth had grabbed my hand and pulled me to the door; sure enough, he pulled up within a couple of minutes. I asked James to take her out for a bit of precious "outside time" before lunch. We don't have anywhere safe enough for her to play without someone able to grab her when she runs out into the street, so I'm leary of taking her outside on my own.
So 20-30 minutes later I realize they are still out there and James needs to eat lunch. I open the front door and what do I see?
"Outside time" has turned into "sit in the car and listen to music time"! James insists that it was all Elizabeth's idea, and I do believe him, but the idea was for her to get some fresh air and run around! Oh, and this picture shows her bangs that I cut too short...her very first hair cut. Oh well, they'll be perfect by Easter!
