So we went to Liberty Park so Ella could play in the Seven Canyons water fountain. A photo at this point would be great, but I couldn't possibly take any pictures while holding a squirming Ava and monitoring Ella for drowning. By the end of day she had figured out that when you fall down, you can just stand up and save yourself instead of flailing and screaming and drawing the attention of every mother there while your large pregnant mom (who had forgotten to put on make up) stumbles into the water clutching an infant to yank you up by the arm.
When Ava fell asleep Ella enjoyed some apples dipped in yogurt...notice bilateral bloody knees from running from above mentioned pregnant mother just to be funny.
We were there for more than three hours and Ella led us from the fountains to the merry-go-round to the Folk Art Museum (pleasing wheelchair access ramp to run up and down) and back to the fountain to splash with various 3 year old boys...and blatantly flirt with a dad or two...
By the time we left Ella could barely stand and her lips were blue, but here is my concern. Other than a very brief ten minute snooze in the car on the way home, and despite me letting her lay on the couch watching "Minnie", she is not taking her daily nap. This mostly concerns me as she also skipped her nap on Monday. This is not the time in MY life for her to give up her daily nap.
Ava, on the other hand, after demanding that she be held at all times once we arrived home, passed out on the carpet when I sat her down momentarily to rescue Ella from some danger, and there she shall stay.
And the real reason I'm blogging about nothing today, is that it is nearly 5 and I realized 30 minutes ago I had made no dinner preparations, and don't want to. So if I keep busy with other things like blogging and a no-nap toddler, Zar will have to pick himself up some take-out to eat during his much anticipated LOST marathon (season 6 came out yesterday). Plus I'm on call so really should be relaxing as much possible in case I get called in at midnight. So that's how it's gonna be.
