    I'm taking a day off next week!

    We were invited to the set of Cupcake Wars - Hubby and I are taking off work, very excited. The producer's daughter was in 1st grade with my 7 year old. We're going at 10:15, will be given a tour, will watch one round of baking and one round of judging.

    QUESTION: Do we take the 4 year old too? She has school that day - we could just keep it on the down low and make it an outing with the big kid.

    What would you do?

    I would just make it a special day for the big kid. I know my older kids love it when they get 1 on 1 parent time.

    If you did thake the 4YO would you be able to enjoy yourself and actually watch it or would you be up and down to the potty several times? I know for me Colby would get bored really quickly and he would want to go before it would be over.

    Yup, you're right. My husband just reminded me about taking her to the movies. Even Madagascar, which she loved, had us taking time walking around in the lobby.

    And I don't want to miss a second (or a bite)

    Thanks Sarah!

    Nah, let her stay in school, it will be better in the long run for everyone. My kids absolutely love their one-on-one time with me but if they score a solo date with both DH and I---well, that's even better!! Have fun!!

    Thanks KC!

    I hope to have photos but the "non disclosure contract" that we have to sign might prevent it...
