I have decided that Chloe needs some one on one time. We always do things as a family or else Jim takes Aedan places. and I stay home with the girls. Which I love because I'm a homebody. But I've realized that Chloe was being neglected. When she goes places it is always with Aedan and Alexa in tow. So on Sunday she and I will venture out by ourselves. She wanted to take Alexa with us " but no boys like Daddy and Aedan" . But I've decided that it will be better to just be the two of us. No stress of the stroller or bottles etc. Of course Jim had it planned that he was taking Master Aedan to the movies.. well sorry buddy you'll have the baby too. So deal. :)
We will most likely hit the BIG mall. Have pizza (her favorite) for lunch. Then hit all the fun stores like Claire's, Hello Kitty, Libby Lu and possibly Build-a-Bear. Then any other ones we see in our travels that look like a 3 year old girl would enjoy. When I asked her what she wanted to do she said "Look at jewelry and jewelry boxes" :) A girl after my own heart. So we will do that also.
on a side note..
Chloe has this habit of picking up a toy or something and carrying it with her everywhere including bed for a week or so before moving to another object. So seeing her pull dolls etc from out from under her pillow every morning is not suprising in the least. What did surprise me was what she pulled out on Monday morning. She gets out of bed, lifts her pillow and pulls out 4 mini princess dolls and a purple plastic butcher/cake knife. I was a bit disturbed that my 3 year old is sleeping with a knife under her pillow albeit a purple plastic knife. She then proceeds to put on her cinderella shoes, and grab her pocketbook that hangs on the bed rail. I ask her why she has the knife and she simply says "Because I like it" OK.. enough said.
