Once again, Sunday night arrived way too fast. The weekend was nice, but somewhat busy; consequently, I do not feel rested and ready to start the week in the least.
On Saturday I took La Luz to City Park to celebrate Betsy's 3rd birthday. In yet another great example of how 'life is what happens while you are making other plans,' Betsy and her dad didn't make it to the party because they were both up the night before with a terrible stomach bug. Despite the fact that the guest of honor was not there, the party was a total success and La Luz had a great time.
She is still terrified of the carousel, however. Check her out trying to act all, "I've got this"...can you see the white knuckles:
La Luz had two friends over to play and exhibited the worst behavior I have seen in about a year the entire time. It was such a shame because I waited all week for some fun time with La Luz and there was nothing fun about her attitude on Saturday. Needless to say, she fell asleep at 6 pm and missed out on the fun of having a babysitter. She had been waiting all week to spend a few hours with her cousin Molly but slept straight through it. I hope the behavior was attributable to a lack of a nap and not some new, lingering virus. I cannot take another illness in the house right now. It is bad enough that La Luz had the honor of taking the class stuffed animal (and all of her outfits) home on the same weekend that we got a note about a lice incident in her class. Lovely.
Here is James, who was, incidentally, quite perfectly behaved all weekend. He is watching La Luz and her friends at the playground:
Saturday night Christian and I had dinner at Rambla followed by Josh's show at One Eyed Jacks. Dinner was delicious, particularly because of the lovely company, and the show was great. I was especially excited to here Telefon Tel Aviv's cover of "I am on Fire". I didn't know Josh had such great range. We didn't get home until after 2, just a few hours before La Luz was ready to wake up and start the day. Lucky me.
