Ottawa

This year for Christmas Brent and I took the girls to Ottawa to visit my Dan, Natasha and Zyta. Much to my (happy) surprise, we were immediately assigned as babysitters for miss Z because Dan and Tash’s work schedule overlapped.

WOOT!

I guess the only explanation is that it’s been 7 years since I had a baby, and those years were also the years I had a job, a toddler, a new business and a new house, but I feel like I have no idea what I am doing. But, it’s fun! And she is one of those kids that is just so darn cute, I can totally see her taking complete control of a household with a grin and a giggle. If I had to guess, the three pieces of banana bread I gave her yesterday after (she didn’t eat her) dinner were likely beyond Tash’s threshold for “spoiling.”

And watching Brent with her is just so awesome. There is something sexy about a man with a baby, I tell ya 🙂

Today Tash and I took the girls to the Children’s Museum. Were it not for the need of food, we would have spent the entire day there. I love times like these, where I can chill out and just be mom for a bit.
