Today I took Xander to a playdate at Red Wing park. One of the girls had set up a Pirate Playdate & Treasure Hunt – which is usually right up Xand’s alley. Today, he was too busy pretending to be Mario (from Nintendo) to be a pirate. We even ended up leaving his pirate hat in the van! Anyone who knows this kid knows he is a pirate maniac … this Nintendo fetish needs to be ended I think. Well, anyway – he had a great time at least. He played with his friends and I got to chat with the other girls. They went on a treasure hunt complete with maps and colored a pirate bandanna. It was a lot of fun. I even got to finally meet one of my new OMBUDSMAN’s, Gabby. She was super sweet and I let her know that I was interested in getting more involved with the command, so we will see what comes out of that.
I caught a super short nap earlier while Xander was sucked into the damn Nintendo. I think I got about a 1/2 hour which was nice. I’m sleepy now – but I’m going to give Xander and shower and get him to bed. Then I can have some sweet alone time with Pinky Lee (yeah, that would be my laptop) and potentially a call from hubby.
