 Today, in between preschool and dance lessons I took Polka Dots, Princess Sparkles and Pigtails to McD's for lunch where they had a huge indoor play structure.  Princess Sparkles was, of course, over the moon to see this play area. 

Usually I'm hesitant to let her go in to those structures (due to "sick germs" and the aroma of toddler pee), however, I figured what the heck and told her 5 minutes.  After 10, I told Princess Sparkles we had to leave.  It looked like she was about to come out, then I kept seeing her in different parts of the structure.  Either she wasn't listening, didn't care, was lost, or all of the above.

20 minutes later...dance class is going to start soon and I'm still trying to talk Princess Sparkles down.  I'm starting to lose my cool.  I'm about to take off my boots and climb up after her (thank goodness I didn't wear a dress!).  Parents are staring.

Then by some miracle (aka "bribes"), Princess Sparkles emerges from the bottom of one of the tunnels.  I'm pretty frustrated though trying not to yell since I'm in public and don't want anyone to call children's services.  Really I'm just relieved I didn't have to climb in there.

Unfortunately, this probably won't be the last time something like this happens.  As parents, we can tell our kids where to go, what to do, and how to do it, but they're still going to do what they're going to do.  I'm sure we'll want to get in there and help them (unless of course it's kind of gross, too tight to fit, and smells like pee) but we won't always be able to.  And eventually they're going to have to figure things out themselves.

Anyway, it all worked out in the end and we made it to dance class just in time.  All I know is I won't be going to that McD's again...unless it's the drive-thru!

this is one of the cutest outfits posted so far--or maybe its the pose--Rast jacket looks great over airy top and the red heels are killer.

Princess Sparkles sure has gained confidence since taking gymnastics where they change the arrangement of the furnishings every week
