A Day at the Mall

The last week of the year I was on vacation, but Charlie wasn't. So me and Avery hung out all week. I got a good taste of what it would be like to be a stay at home mom: WONDERFUL! Her nap schedule was WAY off and we ended up waiting for daddy to come home every night (at 11pm!) from work. This meant sleeping late and 5pm naps. I actually enjoyed it very much! We also shopped till we dropped most days. I was loaded down with returns, exchanges and gift cards from Christmas, so we were out and about every day. I loved every minute with my lil sweetie. I don't think I could survive a trip to the mall without the carousel, riding toys and the cookie shop! When I can tell a meltdown is on it's way, I simply say "I guess it's time for us to go home. Unless you want to be a good girl so you can _____(insert fun thing here)." It worked like a charm all week! Bribery at it's best. ;)
