This morning I managed to get in a little adult TV and was watching The Today Show. They did a piece on cocktail playgroups. All I have to say is given the right time and place, I think it is a great idea. I know by the end of the day or week, I am ready for a little me time and not able to get that. Being able to be around other mommies and partake in a glass of wine shouldn't be a big deal! I suppose this will be the next controversial thing that mothers do that will get a bad rap. As far as I am concerned, how is it any different than having a glass of wine with dinner while your kids are around - there are just other kids around to keep yours entertained. Anyway, now that I have said what I have to say about that. . .
We had our own little playdate today at the mall. I figure this is another way of mommy getting what she wants (shopping) as well as the kids. Our mall has a soft play area by the food court. The kids are able to run off their energy on cold days like today and not get into too much trouble. We met a couple of friends there and then got some lunch. Needless to say, as you can tell from the pictures, AJ decided he was going to paint with his cheese today. It is a good thing that he had such a colorful shirt on, otherwise the layer of cheese crust wouldn't have blended in so well.
