It's like all the world is our oyster if we could just get out the dadgum door.
So, my favorite problem-solver formulated a plan of attack. Get up early. Get dressed. Leave the apartment when he leaves for work.
I tumbled out of bed this morning and straight into the shower, according to plan. And do you know there was a rainbow reflected on the wall of the tub? Kept me company the whole time and made me smile.
With the Mister's kind help, we made it out the door with him and walked him to work. I enjoyed a little morning conversation with my husband, something we don't often get. And the boys got to see Daddy go into work, which was a big delight.
Then, we were off to the races. Stairs to jump, fountains to watch, birds to chase.
Sights to see, people to watch, blankets to crawl.
This was seriously the funniest thing I have seen in a long, long time. A big group of tourists on their way to the White House spotted babykins on his blanket and absolutely descended upon him. They didn't speak any English, but they were all talking in a frenzy, making baby noises and waving their arms, taking pictures and posing with him. It was hilarious! One lady chased Little Guy around in a circle, trying to get his picture, too, and scared him half to death.
