Manic Monday

Just another Manic Monday!  

Lillian and I enjoy Monday's!  It's the first day in several that the house is quiet and WE control the TV!  It's the day we go to the store.  We try to hit the grocery store isles in the morning hours bc that's when I find the clearance produce we use for the week.  It's cheaper and these people eat A LOT!  I base our meals on what we happen to find, sometimes it's a winner and sometimes we have to move to plan B.  We never get out of the store with out a cookie.  In fact, Lillian asks for the cookie before we even get in the door.  "Can has a coooookie pease?!" I always make HER ask for it and HER say thank you.  If not, no cookie.  Then we move on to the deli where she stops for her "cheese pease?!"  They cut the free cheese into shapes like hearts and stars.   She prefers the heart.  
At the checkout, we have 2 options.  If at Kroger, there is a penny horse to ride.  Occasionally, we will spring for riding it twice!  And at HEB there is a kiddie slot machine.  Both are loads of fun for the 2 year old sector.   Honestly, Lincoln still finds them quite enjoyable as well!

Next, we try and make it to the Barnes and Noble story time at 11.  Sometimes we listen to the story and sometimes we just play with all of the stuffed animals that are there for purchase!  Coloring time is our favorite, if we make it that far.  

If there is time, we check in at the mall pet store.  Not my favorite place in the mall but they let you play with the little puppies they have for sale and I can't pass up the chance to hold puppies!  Lillian loves to think she's bossing them around, "Don't jump puppy" and "No bite puppy!"

After story time and puppy playtime, we head inside the mall for some refreshment.   She likes chicken.  What kid doesn't?  And it helps that it's right next to the carousel.  If only the carousel was a penny a ride!  (It's more like $2.50!)  She always chooses the cat.  The cat is the only carousel animal that seems evil.   You see, this particular cat has a bird in it's mouth.  What I can only assume is a DEAD bird.  On a Carousel?  Odd.  And WHY does my little girl choose it?  Poor blue bird!  

On our way back to the car we stop into Pottery Barn Kids to pretend we're having tea in their perfectly set up rooms before we go back the reality of our not so perfect house!  

But we did have the perfect Monday, if you ask us!
