As Daddy was busy with work and had a few conference calls during the day, we had to give him some space. Because a few days ago we reconditioned our old printer which has been sitting in the attic for a long time, we decided to start the day coloring. We printed a lot of coloring pages and made a coloring storybook by stapling some of them together. Our daughter wrote a short story beside each printed drawing before coloring it.
Later, we played with our daughter’s doll house in a different manner. We used Lego pieces to make the furniture for her Lego Minifigures. Then, built a classroom for her Lego Friends girls, a lounge for parents, a bedroom, a kitchen and a bathroom. We also made a parking lot with HotWheels cars and a large garden with a playground. It took us a lot of time, but we had lots of fun searching for the right Lego pieces and coming up with ideas on how to use them.
At noon, we cooked a delicious beef salad and a chicken soup with noodles. My daughter helped me with the peas and the carrots… well, eating them, not chopping them, ha!
Our girl took a nap after lunch, so I managed to work for two hours (I am really lucky to have a flexible working program).
During the afternoon we played various role-playing games with dolls and plushies. We also printed and then played a Guess Who? game with Disney Princesses and Princes.
In the evening, our daughter watched Cinderella opera. She was fascinated by the artists’ voices, dresses and props. I managed to work again, for an hour.
Before bed, we made a plan for the following day. We decided to build a Lego Friends tree house for Yepu, a cute, brown Lego bunny figurine. Then, we read a few stories.
We all had a full day, but, overall, we felt really great because we had the chance to spend quality time together.
