I wasn't well enough to stay up today so went back to bed and slept until dh woke me at 2. He thought we could make it to the drop-in party in the village, to Costco and then to dd's in 2 hours. Given driving time was 80 minutes, and another 15 for me to get out the door, I said that wasn't happening.
So we got off to dd's early and the huge lineup at Costco didn't bother us because we weren't in a rush.
We had an hour-long play with dgs before dinner and another hour after dinner. He is lots of fun these days because he has so much vocabulary. And logic. Some things are mixed up. Anything that has already happened, happened 'yesterday' so he was talking about the taxi Daddy took yesterday (he left at 3:30 today on a business trip.) We were talking about dh going on a plane tomorrow and ds said, "Buppa go on two airplanes" so that was corrected to three (may as well tell the truth, but the kid already understood that one seldom takes a single plane anywhere from this city!)
He has started to say "sure" instead of 'yes' (which he still won't say unless you insist, he just grunts "huh" for yes.) For some reason 'sure' sounds hilarious to me sometimes.
Dd is going to let me have him for overnight on Thursday. I was to just babysit there for a couple of hours (she has a meeting) but if he's here I don't have to drive at night, and we can test run an overnight here (he's never slept here.) This is a practice run for the night they are out at a Fleetwood Mac concert. They didn't put our expected babysitting on the calendar and now I have a house guest that week, with the concert night the final night of the stay. I obviously can't have a crying child at our home with a guest so the plan was for me to sleep at dd's but then I'm not there for my guest in the morning and they can't have a nice romantic night and sleep in.
So step one, see if the kid will sleep at my place. Dd wasn't sure because he hasn't been sleeping well in the pack-N-plays but I pointed out I intended to put him on the air mattress on the floor so I could lie down with him while he goes to sleep. She's worried about his falling off onto the floor so asked me to put our exercise mats around it, but aside from that, she thinks it might work. I'm nervous as all get-out about having the energy to handle him on my own for about 16 hours, but it has to be tried. After all, he should be sleeping 10 hours of that time, which makes it more manageable. And I'm OK with sleeping when he sleeps!
We got home by 7:30 including a stop to pick up the ingredients for my dinner tomorrow night.
Dh reported that his blue tooth keyboard failed and so we put in an A-river order. I was reading something to him when he realized the problem (it had connected with his phone, not computer) so the order was cancelled in time. Except it include 3 items I really wanted but couldn't get free shipping on. So he added in a touch lite adapter and put the order in for me. I was $3 short for free shipping but could not think of a thing to get.
I need more shoes since the ones I bought last weekend were perfect. My cousin said to buy more while I know what I need. Online they are $200 - $400 a pair (due to rarity) so I'll have to see if the store can order in more for me (they were $120 at the store.) Some things just can't be ordered online and these shoes are one of those items (I tried 5 online shoe retailers that carried them but none carried them for a reasonable price in my size.)
