« Milestone | Main | Mia Monday #92: Wagon and 'Tude Edition »

One Perfect Day

Mia woke up at 7:30 this morning, and when I went to get her she demanded her father. So we went to curl back up in bed for a while. Mia grabbed some books and got Dada to read while I got to lie in bed just a while longer before running out for donuts. Hey, we're still celebrating last night's Tinkle Triumph. After breakfast, we headed out to the pumpkin patch. Ok, it wasn't really a pumpkin patch, but Mia thought it was so it counts. We piled a wagon with pumpkins between trips into the moon bounce, down the slide and over to pet the goats. (One of which blissfully peed on his own nose, nasty.)

We ran home for a quick lunch, and then headed out to the high school that is behind our house to finally show Mia the marching band she's been hearing for weeks. We watched a bit of high school football, danced in the bleachers when the dance team took the field and stared wide-eyed at the marching band and "kites" (color guard). Mia's favorite part, by far, was the lollipop I bought her at the snack bar.

We left after half time to have a very short nap and then spent the rest of the afternoon playing with pumpkins. Mia enjoyed pushing them in her doll stroller and showing them to the fish. Dinner, a quick run around the neighborhood, and we were all ready to collapse into bed, but only the two year old actually did.

I have brownies in the oven, ice cream in the freezer, mindless house flipping shows on the tv, a zonked out toddler and a husband who thought to bring me that ice cream just in case the brownies weren't enough.

One perfect day.

What a man. You know my favorite is a brownie sundae! Oh super yum!
Sounds like quite a perfect day though.

Man, I am going to think twice before licking a goat's nose, I can tell you that for sure.

It was definitely the perfect day for the pumpkin patch. We went about five miles east and found a great spot. But you guys definitely packed a lot more in today than we did! So glad you had such a great time.

Oh those days. I love them so.

I'm so happy you had such a great one.


Sounds heavenly.


Sounds lovely!!! We're going to that pumpkin patch tomorrow.

I've been struggling to figure out how a goat pees on his (has to be his) nose. I think I finally have the picture.

What a great day for you!!

Wow! That is a REMARKABLE day.

It's really bothering me, though, about the goat thing. I can't figure out what kind of contortion it must've managed. I mean, it's gross no matter what, but I'm having a hard time with it!

How on earth did it manage to pee on its own nose? I'm not sure I want to know, actually.
And major hubby points for Chris :-) He's so dreamy *sigh* :P

What a lovely day. Congrats on the potty success, I hope it continues!

How lovely

Pure bliss, dude.

can't beat a day like that!

WTG on the potty success!

You're a good man, Charlie Brown.

How does a goat pee on its own nose? You're blowing my mind, here.

Before I even got to the last line of this post, I was thinking to myself as I read..."what a perfect day". I haven't had one of those in a long time - so much life gets in the way all the time and I'm going to make a point of having one too. Soon.

What a lovely day! It just sounds like you had so much fun. I can't wait to take my bear to the pumpkin patch. She's just 1 so she won't really "get it", but I have a feeling she'll love it anyway.

Now get some sleep, woman! While your day did sound delightful, it also sounded exhausting. Whew!


I am also wondering how the goat managed that.

And how do you feel about cloning Chris and then sending the clone to live with me? Ice cream just in case brownies weren't enough..nice!

Well, if that doesn't make a perfect day then I don't know what does!

Goats are gross.

Is it worse to pee on your own nose, or someone else's?

I'm just gonna have to just stop thinking about that. Brownies, ice cream, pumpkins, yada yada - it sounds lovely yet I'm fixated on goat piss.

Sounds like a great day!

How does a goat pee on it's nose? I've been trying to picture it.

Female goats love it when male goats do that. It is goat mating season right now.

Sounds perfect to me. It would have been nastier if the goat had peed on your nose. Yuck!

And yeah for the potty triumph.
