Today marked the first time I tried to take the 3 kids out without Tommy, although it hardly counts since Grandma Baba helped out for most of the day. We went to Touch a Truck at Southpoint – the girls were not so interested in any of the trucks (Kaya sat in the trash truck and we all got in the Durham public bus…and that was about it). Kaya did really enjoy watching the helicopter take off, the bounce house, begging for popsicles, and facepainting. Laney refused face painting and got about 1 foot into the bounce house before she freaked out, but I think she had a good time. Maggie slept despite the super loud truck horns. Then we had lunch at CPK, played in the mall play area, went out for frozen yogurt where we ran into a friend, and went to the Cedar Falls Playground. And I think that we may have made it through the day without all 3 kids crying at once – I’ll call it a win. Now it’s 8:03pm, all 3 girls are asleep, and I’m exhausted!
