For a couple of weeks, my mom has been asking to have Angry Toddler overnight. I ask her every Friday, "Is this going to be the night?" She gets a little skittish and back peddles her request.
My parents haven't had Angry Toddler overnight since he was about 5-6 months old. He will be 4 in May. My mom and dad have heard our struggles with getting Angry Toddler asleep at night. I think they were more scared than anything. My mom watches Angry Toddler all day on Saturdays while Angry Husband and I are at work. By having Angry Toddler spend the night at their house, my mom actually gets to sleep in a little. My mom usually gets to our house at about 6:45am on Saturdays.
We picked Angry Toddler up from school yesterday and then did some errands at Costco. Angry Toddler wanted hot dogs and a churro from Costco, of course, for dinner. Gee, do you think we were going to say no? A less than $10 dinner for all 3 of us.
After we left Costco, I called my mom. She told us to bring Angry Toddler over. We promptly, ok, at an almost high rate of speed drove him to get some stuff for AT. I packed his blankets, and clothing..oh, and couldn't forget the Hershey's Syrup for chocolate milk. We dropped him off at about 7pm.
Angry Husband and I then proceeded to Sur La Table. This is his new favorite store. AH has really gotten into watching the Food Network lately. So he's researching some gadgets. I think he's narrowing down his wants/needs right now. We are probably going to buy a KitchenAid Mixer this week to get him started.
After browsing a little more, we headed over to Fashion Island. Fashion Island is an outdoor mall in Newport Beach. It was soo quiet there. Plus, there were lots of stores vacant. I was truly shocked to see that Pottery Barn was gone. We spent lots of time in the Apple store though, which will be a whole other post.
We finally both decided we were tired and went home. We ended up watching TV for a little bit and then we were both snoring about 10pm.
My mom said AT did great. He went to bed around 9pm and woke up at 8am! YAY!
