Fun Times

Yesterday Art and I went to the City for my rescheduled GE appointment and had a great time shopping without toddlers. We visited that little shopping paradise I recently discovered and went to Target, Toys-r-us and Lowe's and then ate at Pei Wei. Bliss.

The feeling of hearing a child throwing a fit in the toy aisle of SuperTarget and knowing that it cannot possibly be your child, and is, thus, not your problem, is truly exhilirating!

I would like to announce to all that I did not even walk into the children's clothing sections at Target, and did not enter Old Navy either. I may have cast longing glances, of course, and I realize it's what's in your heart that counts, but I think it was progress, nonetheless.

Mim and Zaya had a great time with Grandma T in the morning (the picture above is Zaya showing her how to play Super Paper Mario) and Grandma Lilibeth in the afternoon. The latter was quizzing Mim about her opposites, and the following conversation ensued:

"Mim, what's the opposite of up?"


"What's the opposite of big?"


"What's the opposite of north?"


OK, so we're all little confused here in the Babystepper household, but that just adds a little zest to life, right?

Mmmmmm....Pei Wei. That is one of the two thing I miss about OKC. I loved having one 8 blocks from the house.

If you tried their chicken lettuce wraps I have a recipe that is almost perfect. I's a Rachel Ray 30 minutes meals so it's not too bad. Let me know if you would like it. It only requires the need to cut and stir in a skillet. My kindof meal.

There is much to be said for not living close to Super Target... With one less than two miles from our house, I feel it's irresistable pull on my checkbook every time I drive by!

And I'm just impressed that she knew that "North" and "Dakota" had anything to do with each other!

I'm glad you and Art had some together time. What did the doctor say? I hope you received good news.

At least he knows there is a North Dakota. When I was his age, I wouldn't have even heard of it.

I'll bet Grandma T learned more about Super Mario than she ever wanted to learn, eh? Might as well learn from the best though.
