Day 13: Wednesday Whimsy: The Good Kind of Selfish

This past weekend was probably one of the most beautiful weekends in many, many months.  I'm sure I've said that before, and probably not very long ago, but the more recent ones are the ones that stand out most brilliantly in our minds, right?  Anyway, it played host to brilliant sunshine and a welcomed absence of humidity.  We had no real plans laid out, other than to spend as much time outside as possible.  Well, that was my plan, anyway.  :-)  So while Steve did some stuff around the house and played soccer, Samantha and I managed to squeeze in four (4) playdates!  Sounds horribly selfish, I know!  But we accomplished so much - we got to spend time with great friends, enjoy the spectacular weather (vitamin D, anyone?), get a bit of exercise (3 playground visits!), and keep occupied (that's an important one to mommy, who spends most weekends trying to entertain Samantha and most weekdays trying to think of ways to entertain her on the upcoming weekend).  Thank you to our friends and playmates for spending time with us!

Here are a few photos of our fabulously selfish weekend.

Those swing pictures capture everything that is wonderful about parenting! One of those needs to be printed and hung at home!

It's not selfish, for the record. You are spending time with Samantha, she's spending time with her parents and friends. That's exactly what children want AND need. I think that's the opposite of selfish!
