Yesterday, my MIL came over and, in addition to it giving me some time breathe during the day with an extra pair of hands, it also gave Maya some much needed "Maya time". In the morning, it was what we called "Uita y Nineta" time (grandmother & granddaughter time). They went for walks around the neighborhood and came home briefly in the middle of their walks to give me flowers that Maya had liberated from the ground. Then, in the afternoon, after nap and snack, Maya and I had some much needed girl time. We went to the local Starbucks, where she enjoyed a lemon bar while people watching and some of my (decaf) iced coffee.
|I'm not nosy... I'm just people watching!
|Mmmm.... Lemon Bar
|Don't worry, Daddy- it's decaf!
|I love this place! When can we come back?
Then, it was off for shopping- well, grocery shopping that is! I was out of some of their snacks (breakfast bars, fruit cups, apple sauce) and, although our pantry and freezer is well stocked otherwise, we needed those ASAP.
|Did someone say "shopping"?
|I love you, Mommy!!
To say the least, she's adorable...
And she was talking a mile a minute when we got home, likely explaining to 'Uita' about her fun afternoon.
