An Afternoon Getaway with My Sweet P

I love getaways with this sweet girl. Read all about it and snatch up outfit details on the blog!

I feel like a broken record talking about how sick I’ve been for the last 10 days or so, but the struggle has been real. It’s been over a week now of nasty cold symptoms, unwashed hair, dark circles under my eyes, a messy house, a dirty toddler, and antsy dogs.

So when the opportunity came a few days ago to get out of the house for a bit to soak up some vitamin D and breathe in some fresh air, I had to take it. I threw my greasy hair in a bun, retrieved some clothes from P’s dirty laundry basket (I know, worst mom of the year award), packed my vest pocket full of Kleenex, and headed out the door with P for a little adventure.

And P loved it! Something about water just mesmerizes this little girl. She probably could have stayed for hours. Nothing makes her happier than being outside.

While we were playing at the park and watching the fountains, I couldn’t help but notice I got a few judgemental looks from other moms as they examined my get-up and P’s dirty knees, but given the week we’ve had, it was a miracle we even made it out of the house with all the essentials, so we tried to ignore them 🙂


And to top off the afternoon, we even got a surprise visit from dad on his lunch break.


So between the fountains, hanging with dad, and getting to play in the dirt (since her clothes were dirty anyway…), P had herself quite the perfect afternoon. And despite feelin’ crummy, this mama didn’t have too shabby of a time either 😉
