Today we had a "free day" - no therapy appointments, no swimming lessons, no doctors appointments - NOTHING. No plans. What a luxury! So I asked the girls how they would like to spend this day of luxury...."at McDonalds" came the answer.
So off we went to Maccas for lunch - which unlike most lunches made at home was wolfed down. We then browsed at the shops (toy shops mainly) and then the girls decided they were hungry again. "I want a Krispy Kreme donut" says A2 ....well, who I am to argue with that? So off for donuts we went.
It was so lovely to have a relaxing day where we could move at our own pace. We didn't have to rush to get anywhere. We weren't running late for anything. I was much less stressed than usual. Is this what life is like for "normal" people??? Do people without multiple therapy appointments a week actually have free time like this??? On a regular basis??? I had better not think about that too much or I might get jealous.
All in all it was a great day (the "best day ever" according to E who is obviously easily pleased) - a little old lady even asked if I needed a hand - very sweet - I didn't have the heart to tell her that pushing the double pram with the twins in it and E on her skateboard on the back might actually kill her. It was a nice gesture though...and as for the other little old lady who gave me the evil eye for parking in the disabled parking space - get over it luv - we've got a permit!
