Smile, it’s Friday!
are you as excited as I am that it’s finally Friday?! Oh, and guess what? We’ll have 70 degree weather this weekend!!
I cannot wait to share my adventures with you next week, until then many hugs and kisses!
I’m super excited for the weekend because it’ll be somewhat warm in Chicago! I truly enjoy being with my parents (in fact, daddy is my partner in crime but please, don’t tell mommy that!).
He truly is my best friend.
I often tell him to walk a little slower because I’m following his footsteps and I don’t want to fall.
This being said: Someday when I’m all grown up, I want to be just like my awesome daddy.
Have a great weekend!
Last weekend my parents + god-parents took me to the Symphony in Chicago! They had a special program going on, designed for young children ages 3 to 5 – featuring a small group of CSO musicians and a master storyteller who created interactive experiences that introduced us young ones to the world of music.
We visited the “The Three Little Pigs” program which was so much fun! They even had pre-concert activities (45 minutes before the performance) that prepared us to take part in the interactive portions of the performance and plant seeds for strong memories, of course!
The performance itself was great! My imagination was truly inspired by their vivid storytelling and let me tell you: It was so vivid that I got OH-SO scared of the wolf! Yes, when the bad wolf started playing his tuba well…, I started crying. I know, I know…silly!
After the performance, though we got to meet the musicians and the storyteller before heading home.
What an AWESOME day!
I cannot believe that the weekend is already over…I had so much fun! My parents + god-parents took me to Bass Pro Shop where they held a special fishing event yesterday! They had a catch and release pond where you could practice your fishing skills (über-fun!), a free kids’ fishing workshop (I won a hat and cool sunglasses, see picture!), and I got free photos (fishing certificate) and a free kids’ fishing tackle box!
I was beyond happy but it didn’t end here, of course! Afterwards my god-parents decided to take me and my parents to the Rainforest Café and I LOVED it! More aquariums + wildlife! Woo-hoo! I couldn’t have been more excited!
This being said…I’m grateful for my family who truly take the time to make my weekend(s) AWESOME!
Yesterday my dad surprised me with 12 Amazing Capsules Farm Animals (which he got for just $1 at Jewel Osco)! By now you probably know how obsessed I am with animals – so, this present was spot on!
You drop the capsules in warm water (adult supervision with warm/hot water) and watch as the capsule ‘creatures’ begin to grow and take shape! In just a few minutes my animals already started to appear!
It’s a lot of fun and the perfect surprise for your children!

It’s not only great for parents to meet with other parents, and have their kids play together, but it’s also good for us! We learn how to interact with other kids; learn how to share and how to get along in general.
Jenn Berman, author of The A to Z Guide to Raising Happy, Confident Kids, says, “It’s never too early for a playdate for a child, even an infant. Babies are fascinated by other babies, and any new stimulation is really good for brain development. Even looking at another child, touching hands, and just being curious is really good.”
I, on the other hand, do not care of the age(s) of my friend(s). I love to play, even if our ages don’t match!
I’ve been watching mommy and daddy for my whole life now and I’m OH-SO ready to start my own imagination games that either mirror our home life and/or outside life. My latest obsession?
I turned my room into a train station with me being the ticket conductor! Come visit me and watch the magic happen! My parents are happy to play the “role play” game with me and I must admit: It’s fun to boss them around every once in a while!
