This is Lyric’s first “summer break”, and also the first time I realized just how much he TALKS, and how LONG a day can be! haha! So, we decided that maybe a change of scenery and a change of pace was just what we needed. I didn’t want to waste an entire day driving somewhere so we decided on a fun little weekend away to Montreal. With only being about 2 hours away, it was the perfect destination for us.
So, I may not be a “new” mom, but I’m definitely a mom who is new to having a 4-year-old-spring-time-kindergartener! I had NO idea he could get this dirty! No, but really! When Lyric was younger, I (like most new moms) bathed my lil baby every day. He was just so perfect and new and I didn’t want to mess him up! As he got older, he developed very dry skin, and would scratch himself while he slept until he would cut himself. Now, I’ve learned that bathing your child (or yourself for that matter) every day isn’t the greatest for your skin. So I backed off, started bathing him every other day, or every 3 days. When he started school I noticed he would definitely be a little sweatier than normal, but now that the weather is nice, he comes home just DIRTY! Those recesses spent in the sand, rolling in the grass, practicing his “dance moves” or just running around has him needing to get clean more often.
If you checked out my Holiday Gift Guide this year, you would’ve noticed the most current LeapFrog tablet, the LeapPad Ultra XDi! Lyric was fortunate enough to get the original LeapPad1 for his 2nd birthday, and we LOVED it! It was immediately easy to use, even for my fresh 2 year old, as well as durable! As the saying goes.. it gets better with time, and this is so true when it comes to the latest release from LeapFrog!
Yes, there are 5 exclamation points following Disney in the title… what can I say, I’m THAT excited! Something is coming to town, and it’s not just Santa… it’s Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival!! Produced by Feld Entertainment, Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival is aiming to be the biggest concert experience to hit live family entertainment, and I get to take Lyric the day after his 4th birthday! EEP! I have a feeling he’s going to go absolutely BANANAS when he sees this! At this point I’ve left it a surprise, but I have a sneaky suspicion he might start wondering when I’m dressed as Woody and he’s dressed as Buzz and we’re leaving the house.. and it’s not Halloween! haha! (and just so you don’t have to simply imagine what that would look like.. here’s a picture haha!)
