Olivia and I got to enjoy quite a bit of one-on-one time today. She is so much fun and she really keeps me on my toes. Her new boundary tester this week is, when she does not like what I am saying, putting her hands over her ears and telling me she cannot hear me. She is so me, it's not funny. We are in trouble with this one!
Here we are together during nap time. Olivia gave up naps around two. I thought I would be upset about it. For a lot of SAHMs I know, nap time is their saving grace. It is their little glimpse of sanity during an otherwise chaotic and out of control day. For me it was a couple hours to myself to do whatever I wanted. When those hours were not happening, I thought I would go insane. Not the case. I really enjoy this one-on-one time that we would not get if she were napping. Then there is the added bonus that my children are in bed and asleep on most nights before 6:30 p.m.! Talk about some "me" time.
Today Olivia and I played her favorite game, Ear Tug. She won all three games! Helped that she was cheating (bottom right). Caught ya, little girl! Next time I will not be so forgiving ;)
