Paige may not use the best grammer to describe her Tuesday, but I think it gets the point across. Tuesday started as only the best day ever, but got even better by the end of the day. It started with Ronnie and me taking off Tuesday to go on a field trip with Paige. She’s been asking and asking since the beginning of summer for us to go on one with her. I was saving it more for the end of summer to see how she would do. Paige had some behavior issues on the first couple of field trips and her ability to continue going on them was severely jeopardized. She settled down into things and has been on every field trip this summer.
I also picked today because it looked fun. Well, as much fun as going on a field trip with 15 assorted 5 year olds can look anyway. This one was to a painting party place. Don’t have them in your area? You’re missing out. This session was geared towards kids of course, but we’re thinking of going back later after we get a sitter. The place sketches out your requested picture, in this case a turtle for Paige & Mommy and a monkey for Daddy. They do have more complicated pictures for adults. The artist on duty walks you through painting your masterpiece. When it’s adult time, you can bring your own beverages (alcoholic or not, it’s up to you) and some appetizers and spend a couple of hours hanging out with friends and having fun. They even do birthday parties as well.
After the field trip we sent Paige back to daycare to get some errands accomplished in peace. I don’t know a 5 year old who likes to sit at the dealership through an oil change and tire rotation. I don’t know an adult who likes it for that matter. Paige didn’t know but we had one more surprise in store for her. Carmike Cinemas has a promotion where movies during a certain time frame are $5 per person. And since it’s Tuesday drinks were $1 each. We went to see Cars 2 this afternoon. Popcorn is also discounted, but since we have the popcorn bucket we’re good no matter what. We loan it out to friends and family all year long.
As we picked Paige up from daycare and told her about her surprise her entire face lit up. Ronnie asked if this was still the best day ever; she replied “Nope! It’s the bestest best day ever!” I was also told I’m the best mommy in the entire world. Sounds like we both had a good day.
