what a girl wants.

At the beginning of the summer, I pulled out my wall calendar and started planning. I wanted to make sure I had lined up the quality activities that I was sure Claire needed.

Playdates. Check.
Storytimes. Check.
Parent-tot swim lessons. Check.

I had a plan but, as usual Claire had another. We have had some playdates this summer and we have gone to some storytimes. But somedays we skipped those things to hang out on our own. Or to nap when we felt like it.

We don't do a gymboree class. We don't do swimming lessons. We read a lot. We play a lot. We get really, really messy. And we do it again. And again. And again. It's not quality she wants, it's quantity.

That, and brownie batter.

I agree with Claire, brownie batter trumps even the best play-dates!
