Sleepy Mommy Plans for the Weekend

So this morning, I woke up to my daughter calling out "Daddy! Daddy!" from her bedroom. Luckily, Little K stays in bed until we walk into her room. I felt rested, relaxed and glad it was Saturday. Since the clock said it was only 6:30 am, I figured my husband had just gotten up to go to the restroom so I ventured into Little K's room.

After explaining that the sun wasn't up yet, we cuddled close in her bed. Ahh. Saturdays.

Moments later, Little K insisted on "up, up", so we got her dressed and went on the Daddy hunt. No, he wasn't in the restroom or shower. Not in bed & not downstairs. At 6:50 am, I peer out the window to see if his truck was in the driveway. Nope.

Oh my gosh! It's not Saturday. It's Friday!
After a good laugh, I explain to Little K that she can watch "Little Einsteins" on TV, while Mommy gets dressed in lightning speed. Clothes, hair, makeup. Whew! I comb my daughter's hair & she seems ready for nursery school... almost as if she knew all along but didn't know all the words to communicate. How funny life is. Thank goodness it's Friday & tomorrow really will be Saturday.

If you're looking for family activities this weekend, here are a few options:
- - Head to the beach before summer ends. Moody Gardens in Galveston is wrapping up its Radio Disney summer concert series this weekend so it's a great time to head to the island. Moody Gardens and Island Star Performances have been presenting the "Radio Disney AM 1590 Summer Concerts 2007" since June -- each concert features a new cool artist that the whole family will love. This Friday, August 3, Everlife will be the attraction from 8 - 9:30 pm.

The concerts are held in the Moody Gardens Convention Center and tickets are $20/adults and $15/children. Before the show, you can enjoy all that Moody Gardens has to offer, including the Aquarium Pyramid®, the Rainforest Pyramid®, the IMAX® 3D Theater, the 4D Special FX Theater®, Palm Beach, Discovery Pyramid®, Ridefilm Theater and the Colonel Paddlewheel Boat.

- The First Annual Back2School Houston Parade will begin at Minute Maid Park (Texas & Crawford) at 10 am on Saturday, August 3, with the theme of "Our Children. Our Choice."

- Show your kids an easy way to give back to the community by perusing the goodies at the Heights Yard Sale. This monstrous yard/garage sale is raising money to support academic scholarships for high school students in Houston who are moving on to college.
Saturday, August 4, 7:00 A.M. – 2:00 p.m.
The Artful Corner, 3423 White Oak Dr. & Cortlandt

Enjoy your weekend, whichever day it is. Until the next nap time...
