Mama had a baby and ……

It’s head popped off….


And it’s hands got chewed off too…


And who would do such a thing?


We left the dogs in today, it was 90* and very humid so I didn’t take them with us when we went to town. I just had three kids today, Abby, Rachel and Anton so we decided to make it a play day in town. We went here….


And saw…

And lots more. We had a guide of sorts that answered all of the kids question and would show them things they missed in some displays. The kids learned and had a blast being there.

Then we walked up town….

And went birthday shopping for our friend in New York. Got her a few very neat and wonderful things.

Then we went bowling. Our local bowling alley has a summer special, Monday-Friday 11-3 you can bowl for .50 cents. Now that is something even this daycare mama can afford to do. We played one game and had lunch (a treat from Rachel and Abby’s mama).

By time we finished all of this it was getting close to 4 and time to head home for a snack and leaving time. The kids had time to play in the water and cool off and have some ice-cream.

All in all it was a wonderful, but very busy day.

Tomorrow I have three again, a different young man. I think if it’s not storming, like they are saying might happen, we’ll head to the beach in Deerwood and then have a picnic. Next week it’s back to a full house each day so we’ll do games and stuff here. I do try to change things up and take a different bunch here or there so just depending on how many we do lots of different things. This Saturday I just have a family of three and think we’ll go and do something too. Maybe garage saling with Grandpa. We’ll just see what that day brings when it happens.

So there you have it, a day in The Life of Riley. Pretty darn good if you ask me. Something I really want to continue doing for many years to come. I can keep hoping and praying and see where the good Lord leads me.

Take care my friends and I’ll chitter chatter with you another day. Blessings to you all!!

Mangled Barbis and puppies. What a day! It sounds like you all had a fun trip to town. When I worked in daycare there were too many kids to make many field trips with. We mostly stayed around the center but occasionally we would take them to Iams nature center or the movies. There are a lot of rules in Tennessee about how many teachers are necessary per the number of students. It was hard to stay on top of everything. You center seems more personal and homey. I would like that, I think. Have a wonderful 4th of July weekend.
