Of course this was my first time doing the park scene on a warm day with my BABY... So you could just say I may have overpacked for the occasion a bit.... I had enough toys to fill a 50 gallon trash bag, the camera, a blanket, a stocked diaper bag, ........I THOUGHT I had everything.
As we were walking around, I heard the all to familiar sound... of a small piece of plastic & rubber hitting a hard surface... Im sure all the mom's are now thinking "O-no the paci" Yup you guessed it... and it just so happens that, while packing the entire nursery I completely forgot to refill the zebra print Amy Coe paci holder I have hanging from the diaper bag. Of course, as soon as she threw it out of the stroller onto the walking path.. she cried for it.. and it most likely wasnt going to stop until she got it back...
So I did what every other super mom would have done....I followed the words of my late grandmother... "just kiss it up to jesus".. and then I popped it right back in her mouth...well, after I poured out almost my entire bottle of dasani water over it.... It's just building immunities right?!?!....Don't judge... I mean come on if thats the only dirt that ever makes it into her mouth.. I will be very shocked.
As we walked around the park.. with every other mother in this county, I was getting more and more excited for
I am such a people watcher.. When the hubs and I were dating we would love sitting places at the mall and just watching the things people do.. I would always make up stories about the lives of the strangers that walked past us.... "He's freaking out cuz his baby momma just caught him walking around with his new girlfriend"... "Look at that screaming kid.. watch the moms about to offer him a piece of candy if he stops screaming".....Well let me just tell you there is a TON of people watching available at the park when it's full of women.
We walked past the petting zoo and I saw a mother taking like 72 photos of her son standing in front of the fence where the momma cows and calves were at... really lady are you going to make an entire scrapbook about your little boy and a
Then I saw a mom there who, by the way she was dressed looked slightly out of place, she had on light khaki pants(a park no-no), Etienne Aigner riding boots, a white 3/4 length sleeve shirt, with an Anne Taylor cardigan over her shoulders and tied in the front..really lady are you going to nigh noon tea, or the park.. where there is mud, and rocks, and kids.. O my. I heard her yell to her son and then grab him by the hand and pull him over to the grass.."Tristen.. look how dirty you are, were leaving, let's get in the car.. I told you NOT to get dirty". Ummmm why in the world did you come to the park with a
By the time we came home I was so ready to grab my running shoes and hit the trail.. to bad it was getting late. I felt so refreshed after soaking up all of that vitamin D from the sun, getting out of the house after being cooped up in the sub zero degree weather for the past
Spring please come early!
