Since your Dad was working again today, we took things easy this morning (I baked your Dad some energy bars while you napped) and decided to walk to the park close by once you were up and fed. There, we met with a lovely young mom who used to live in Quebec and we got to speak French together and made plans to go for a walk sometime next week. She has a little girl who is a year old and she has never been around Swan Lake so I told her we could go there together. I got a bit distracted talking to her and didn’t notice you were eating your first few handfuls of sand. Oh well, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger! Plus, you spat most of it all eventually, so I’m not too worried about it!
Then, while we were walking home, we ran into Mike and Poppy. I know Mike from your Dad’s workplace, so we walked back to his place (Paula had just left to run some errands). Eventually, we came home and your Dad was already there! We Skyped with your Nonno and Grandma and after dinner, your Dad took over your bedtime routine. He bathed and fed you and put you to bed. It was nice to have a complete night off “mommy-duties”! Usually, we tag-team for your bedtime when your Dad is here, but tonight, he offered to do everything!
Now that you’re in bed and all the dishes are done, we’ll cuddle up on the couch to watch a movie and I’m so excited because tomorrow, the new season of Castle is back on the air! It is my one guilty TV pleasure! I love that show and have been counting the days to its return! Only one more sleep!
