We drove to State College to attend the Big 5 Gymnastics Qualifier.
While all three of us enjoyed it (probably me the most), Isabelle grew impatient after an hour. We moved our seats twice.
We even plied Isabelle with candy in an effort to liven her up. It didn’t work. “I wanna go to the hotel,” she repeatedly said.
After the awards ceremony, we headed to the hotel. Suddenly, there was pep in her step. Why? Isabelle loves hotels!
Isabelle claimed a bed for her and her bears. She unpacked some of her things. Then, she found oodles of notepads in one of the desks. That seemed to be the highlight of her day! She got to work writing P-E-N-N S-T-A-T-E repeatedly on the notepads.
Is it just me or does this whole thing remind you of when you buy a kid a toy and all they want to play with is the box?
