My friend Amanda called me and invited us to join them at the local park to ride the carousel as it was free that night. We loaded up the car, headed to the park and Little Miss was in HEAVEN. She has this game face she puts on when she's really, really excited about something and she was wearing it the whole time we were there. We must have rode that thing for an hour. That night when I went to bed I was still spinning.
It was one of the best evenings we have had in a long time. I can't totally explain why it was perfect but it was. I felt a little guilty about not making it to the first home game and then my husband encouraged me that taking her to ride the carousel was much more important than seeing him at the game for 15 minutes. Sometimes I feel like I need to do it all and this was one of those nights that reminded me how smooth things go when I don't overdo it.
