Saturday afternoon, Kelsey’s parents and sister’s family of five joined us for Easter service at our church. And her parents stayed with us Saturday night. Which meant Sunday would be Funday with Nana and Papa for our little Roo.
So, when it came time for them to leave, right at nap time, I hadn’t yet realized how difficult the next few hours would be as a parent. (Total first world problems.)
Rooney woke up that morning as normal, although she had a full and leaking diaper that soaked her sleepsack with urine. Not the biggest deal; into the wash went her favorite sleepsack.
The forecast couldn’t have been better! It was mid 60s before 9 AM and at about 09:30 we headed to the playground, and then back home to get Rooney’s trike (she calls it her bike) that she’s recently fallen in love with after weeks of being uninterested. So we walked around the block.
The weather was more gorgeous by the minute, and we soaked up the beautiful Easter morning in our front lawn and made plans for lunch. Kelsey proclaimed that if we wanted to be practical, we could go to Hy-Vee (a local grocery store with a built-in restaurant), and if we wanted to be fun, we should go to The Cheesecake Factory.
Into the minivan we went and off to The Cheesecake Factory, where we had a great lunch and brought home tons of leftovers.
The perfect storm was about to let loose as Nana and Papa said their goodbyes and nap time was at hand. Actually, it was a little later than normal, which might have had something to do with it…
