Busy weekend. It’s odd because on Friday night, my husband expressed his concern that we are lazy parents. That we don’t take Justin out and about much.
I just about fell off the bed. Seriously?
We had just come back from taking Justin to the Taste of Red Wing and had found a little midway with some games even he could play. He earned enough tokens to win a little prize, one of those hand clappers and he just loves it. He’s only missed one concert in the park this summer. He has two story times each month, a LLL meeting, and he sees his grandparents about once per week. He’s been on bike rides with us; we’ve taken him to the park. We take him on walks in his stroller. He goes out to eat with us every Friday night. He’s been to numerous birthday parties, family reunions, and visiting with friends. I’m not sure where else we can take him. The pool, I guess.
On Saturday, he went with me to the library book sale. The Friends of the Library have two sales each year. When one of the members saw us, she went to the back where she had set aside a special book for him. Yes, this is the same book club that threw the children’s book baby shower. He also went to the craft fair with me. On Sunday, we took in the parade. And I must say that the floats with all the “royalty” were a big hit with him. Maybe even more than the fire truck. He only smiled at the truck, the girls got an awed jaw drop and frantic waves. Especially when they were dancing. He would have made out like a bandit with the candy if I would have let him have any. Okay, I did let him have some of his twizzler because I could break that into small pieces, but let’s just say that our “neighbors” were very happy that he’s such an accomplished flirt and that his mother won’t let him have anything he can choke on. I’ve never seen so much candy in my life.
Granted, tonight we stayed home. He has a new friend in daycare–and I think that’s enough excitement for one day.
