This was what she tweeted me:
"please do something fun so i don't feel sad. something blogworthy so i can read about it. "
So here you go Ali, we had some simple fun on Thursday. I just didn't have a chance to get the pictures off the camera sooner.
|Old school wagon|
The weather was lovely and Nana (Ben's mom) said she had a surprise for Garrett. We went out in the yard to find an old fashioned wagon. The bottom was a bit rusty so we cleaned it and put a blanket down for him to sit on. Garrett then made sure that I got lots of exercise running him around their yard.
|Run, Mommy, Run!|
Then Nana pulled him for a bit.
|Chillin' with Nana|
And of course he had to push the wagon himself.
After that I decided to leave Garrett with his grandparents and take some time to myself. I haven't really done this and usually don't know what to do with myself but I figured I need to get used to doing things without Garrett. Especially since if we move out to Pittsfield we'll have several available baby sitters.
So I get in the car, start driving. Garrett is playing with Nana and doesn't seem to care that I left. Ben was at his interview so it was just Garrett and his grandparents.
I get about 15 minutes down the road, realized I had forgotten my wallet and had to turn around to go get it. I guess it's going to take time to get used to going out without a diaper bag.
