The little boys and I spent the afternoon by ourselves today, playing in the back yard, having a picnic, raking leaves (it’s a big yard, people!), and generally having ourselves a good giggle. Widget went to preschool for the first time (this time) today, and Little Bear learned to climb up the ramp to the redwood playset. We topped the day off with a little hide-and-seek, where Widget did the ol’ around-the-tree trick for the first time.
Both my boys are both growing by leaps and bounds, but not too fast — after lunch, each of them needed their mommy to read to them and put them to sleep. It was delicious.
The reason I’m looking forward to surgery today?
– Because there are many more afternoons to enjoy with my baby boys.
