Two weeks ago, we finally got to have Miss A’s four year old checkup at the doctor. Yes, I realize she’s almost five. We had a few hurdles to jump over to get this appointment — first, getting her records from her pediatrician in Florida was harder than we thought it would be, and nobody would make an appointment unless we had them in our hands already. The first time we requested them, they never came. The second time, we got a blank CD. The third time, we finally got the CD and made the appointment…and then the fates worked against us and we had to reschedule the appointment.

January/February in Boston = COLD outside. We try to keep it fun in the house and I think we do a good job.
Last weekend we were at Target, and because Miss A loves books so much, we cruised over to the kids books sections for her to entertain herself for a few minutes. I knew they had been learning a few “popcorn words” at school, but I had no idea she could do THIS.
I live for Wednesdays. On Wednesdays, Mr. Dad works late and I get to pick up Miss A from school. If he’s working really late, we go do something fun, just the two of us. Tonight was dinner at a local restaurant, a trip to the Apple Store, and a trip to the scrapbooking store.
Tomorrow, November 10, 2012 is Neighborhood Toy Store Day! As we’re about to commence on the biggest time of year for retailers, please don’t forget about your local neighborhood toy stores. Sure, the big box stores may have big aisles, tons of products, and deep discounts, but your local toy shop owner is sure to be a lot more knowledgeable about his or her products, and you’ll be feeding your local economy by shopping there.
