We miss out on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day up here in Ontario, but we’ve got a brand new winter holiday: Family Day. It was implemented last year, when I called it “Give Me Back My Childcare; I’ve Got Work to Do Day.” This year, I’m a better planner I have more time to plan family activities, so I am embracing it.
This afternoon, we head to Buffalo to do some shopping in American stores–hello, Target!–and tonight we’ll go to the hockey game. The Buffalo Sabres are playing against my beloved San Jose Sharks, and Husband got us all tickets. We’ll stay over and splash in the hotel pool on Saturday, which may sound lame if you don’t have a kid, but you parents know what I am talking about. Back for Kid’s Timbits game on Sunday and a playdate on Monday.
I think I’m starting to get the hang of this motherhood thing.
