100 Days for My Baby Girl: Day 96

Day 96
With just 4 days left until 100 days, I just had an epiphany. Its funny how all great ideas always seem to come at the last minute, after you spent so much time thinking, planning, and doing. You get to the end of a project, and BOOM!, the light shines down upon you. 

Wifey's parents live in Canada, they are out of the question. However, my parents live just 20 minutes away. And, I have not taken advantage of that nearly as much as I should. So, in order to bring them closer to their grandchild, now would be an excellent time for that to happen. And, it would give Wifey and I some much needed one-to-one time.

So, this day is going to be all about vacation. And here is what I’m planning to do:

Grandparents Day with My Daughter
Yes, I realize that there is probably a Hallmark holiday established for this, but this is a different kind of Grandparents Day. This day won't actually be celebrating Grandma and Grandpa (Sorry, Mom). This day will be celebrating a day away from K2. Sounds horrible, doesn't it? I mean, who would want to spend the day away from their beautiful, adorable, baby girl? She's only this age once in her life, you should never want to be away from her. And just what would one do without her?
  • Grab coffee and breakfast at a real, old-school diner?
  • Come home and sleep until noon?
  • Eat grilled cheese sandwiches and Doritos for lunch while you sit in your Snuggie on the couch and watch an uninterrupted movie...in the daytime?
  • Read a book? An actual book that doesn't contain cartoon animals, three sentences on a page, or rhymes?
  • Cook a dinner that doesn't involve a microwave, and be able to actually eat a warm meal for the first time in three months?
  • Go to sleep at 8pm and not be woken up until 8am the following morning?
Yes, this horrible. How could we even think about doing such a thing. Very, very selfish on our part. Enough of that talk, that is just too irresponsible. We'll have plenty of time for those things in 2032. So, anyways...Mom, what day works best for you guys?
