Yes Day was a huge success! My biggest surprise is that Christopher didn’t ask for anything too crazy, and I feel like I had to keep reminding him that it was his special day. I only had to say no a few times (He wanted to swim in the lake, he kept pressing a button on a very loud toy, and he was talking/dancing/running while I was putting Emmy down for a nap).
SO, here is a recap of our fun day:
7:43 am: I heard “YES DAY!” from Christopher’s room. He then walked out of his room, arms raised over his head. He snuggled up to me on the couch and requested cartoons and a pizza party for breakfast.
9:09 am: Yes Day annoyed me for the first time. He insisted on watching Max & Ruby (annoying), he turned the volume up as high as possible – which only caused us to yell to each other over the Yes Day rules and regulations. Then he insisted on watching a specific part of Max & Ruby over and over – making it so that we watched the same three minute clip 11 times.
9:35 am: Karate time! There’s always time for karate – even on Yes Day.
11:35 am: HOME! He asked if he could swiffer the floors. “UH, YES!”
12:15 pm: Lunch time. His selection? Turkey dog, peaches, chips, and milk (I was absolutely expecting a request for a HappyMeal). He also asked if we could play the quiet game during lunch, so we did – and we stayed mostly quiet for 30 minutes.
12:40 PM: Chris wanted to measure any and everything in the house. We learned that Mommy is just a little taller than daddy, Christopher has big muscles, Daddy has the biggest muscles in town, Tinkerbells are very small, our kitty is hard to measure…
1 pm: Christopher wanted to play Super Mario Brothers and watch the Avengers with his Daddy (I didn’t get a picture of that fun, I was helping Emmy go to bed for a quick nap).
3:30 pm: Hot Tub time!
5:30 pm: I went to pick up his friend Easton for dinner. We went to a diner here in Cicero, Erika’s Place, so that Chris could have cheese sticks. My brother and his family met us, so did my dad and stepmom. Chris was a HAPPY boy.
7:30 pm: the kids ran around the house, had a nerf gun fight, played hide and seek and tag, and wore costumes.
10:30 pm: After saying yes to the “Can I stay up really late mama?” question, I finally tucked Chris and Easton into bed.
10:31 pm: YES DAY WAS OVER AND WAS A BIG SUCCESS!
