The girl child spent the weekend here ...

well, Friday night and Saturday anyway.

     On Friday, we did some shopping and then stayed out until 3am (aimlessly wandering and girl talk, don't ya know). Skipped the movie we planned to watch when we got home, to bed by 4am and up again early on Saturday, we had plans to do a little early morning running around before hitting the beach.

     I woke her us as planned at 8am and for what ever reason, she opened her eyes and said "even slaves get to sleep". I'm not sure what that means but it did buy her an extra hour, I let her sleep until 9am.

     We got a later start than expected, and ended up junk store shopping all morning instead of sticking to agenda (her request) then off to do what we love doing most ... taking advantage of the sand, surf and sun here in beautiful South Florida.

     Home by 6pm and she was off to soccer practice with her roommates. These girls take there soccer serious. When my kids were growing up they took park in so many different sports, I was so a little league Mom. Mandy never played soccer until now, she was more into basketball, go figure she would take this up as a young adult.

     My one day weekend is over, glad to have spent it with the girl. Enjoy this beautiful Sunday morning all, I'm off to work. There is just something so wrong with one day weekends, right?

Its always fun to spend time with them as young adults. I  too did that this past week-end with my two adult children and grandaughter at a water park in New Hampshire. But a mom we'll always be whether letting them sleep a little later or making sure that we had all the goodies to bring to the water park. Mom maybe the hardest job on earth but also the most rewarding. Lets enjoy them!!

Yes! There is something seriously lacking in a one day weekend. I hate that idea! LOL Hope you can change that soon.
