The downturn on Friday was that Steven hurt his back at work. I mean BAD. Like, can't get out of bed Saturday morning bad. Thank GOD I got almost everything accomplished on Friday that we needed done before leaving for the weekend.
Once we got to Nana's house the fun really began! M.D. got to have lots of playtime with Nana and then his cousins came over to hang out. His cousin Gabe showed him how to play with trucks. M.D. was a big fan of trucks with Gabe. I was especially happy because I was out of our house (meaning no chores) and I had help with M.D. since Steven was down for the count.
Easter Sunday was a huge undertaking...at least the morning. We got all 3 kids (under age 4) ready for church and out the door on time. It was an Easter Miracle. To top it off, M.D. sat through mass without a peep. NOT A PEEP. I couldn't believe it. Maybe he just doesn't like Lutheran services? Either way, Jesus rose. PHEW! M.D.'s cousins helped him find his Easter basket and his favorite part was the Easter grass inside. Of course it was. Why did the Easter bunny even fill that damn thing with toys? Easter grass was 50 cents a bag.
I broke down and bought M.D. an Easter outfit. No, not the dressy outfit all kids need to wear to church so they look like their parents have their shit together. Nope. An Easter Bunny outfit. I swore I wouldn't, but then I saw it, and I had to. My rationalization was that the outfit actually is super cute and soft and comfy so he has been wearing it for p.j.s since I purchased it and will continue to do so until he outgrows it. I'm a big fan. I've never seen a cuter Easter Bunny in my whole life.
M.D. headed back to Miss Michelle's house today. I asked Steven to warn her. He probably will have a not-so-great day again today. Fingers crossed for her that I'm wrong in my prediction.
