A perfect day before Lu:
A sunny but not too hot Saturday. Waking up no too late (9 maybe) so we could have time to enjoy the day. Breakfast in La Condesa (Mexico City´s SoHo) and a walk in the park. A fun exhibition in one of the city’s many museums and free exhibits (extra points if it´s downtown) Late lunch comida with the family. Romantic comedy at the movies. Dinner and board games at a friend´s house.
A perfect day after Lu:
Any weekend with Lu and Devoted Daddy!
But ok THE PERFECT DAY would be:
Lu wakes up at 5 or 6 am for the first time, drinks her bottle and goes back to sleep until 8 on our bed! Cuddling, snuggling and giggling in bed until it´s time for the first time of the day. Homemade chilaquiles for breakfast while Lu naps. Choosing a cute outfit for our baby doll and taking one million pictures. Walking to the park and laying Lu down on a blanket to excitedly coo and laugh at the moving leaves on the trees. Comida with BOTH families to give Lulita the cuddling overdose of the week. Somehow finding time to rent a movie (Saturday night TV sucks!). Devoted Daddy on the guitar and Tone Deaf Mommy on the vocal singalong sure to make Lu excitedy kick and gurgle or at least crack a smile at her silly old mom. A warm bath in which she´ll either drink bath water while chewing on her octopus finger puppet, eat some soap from her just washed hands, empty the tub with excited kicking, pee on her towel or all of the above. A bottle and a bedtime story to a lovely smelling, soft, sleepy baby. Movie (extra points for chick flick), pizza, popcorn with chamoy and chocolate chip cookies for mommy and daddy.
