Today finally felt like Spring! The sun was shining and it was 70 degrees outside. Yay! After I finished cleaning up the apartment, I took Nathaniel outside to ride his scooter. He was so excited to go for a scoot. We went up to a park by us that has a beautiful view of the manhattan skyline. Unfortunately, we were only there for a bout 10 minutes! There were so many nats and Mosquitos buzzing around. They kept following us where ever we walked, or in Nathaniel’s case, scooted. Finally my son says “mommy, let’s just go home. I don’t want the Mosquitos to eat us!” Haha. Poor guy. I told him we will just go for a nice walk, away from all the nats and mosquitos.
After walking for a bit, we ended up at his favorite small park. Luckily it was open, so we went inside so he could play on the swing and slide. We bumped into some of our summer friends as well, so it was nice to catch up. As my son walked up the stairs and slid down the slide, I sat on a bench, soaking up some sun. It felt so nice and relaxing. That lasted just a short time though, because soon I was being asked by my son and his friend, if I wanted “ice cream”. Suuuure, I would like chocolate ice cream please”. “Yes I would like sprinkles please”. ” oh um sure more ice cream please”. This went on for little while. I think they were trying to see who could make me the best imaginary Ice cream ever!
Forty-five minutes later, after my son made a bunch of imaginary ice cream, raced cars, slid down the slide and swung on the swing, it was time to leave. We went to rent a movie, then went home and ate some tuna sandwiches. After that, I gave Nathaniel a bath, then laid him down to watch the movie, while I did some exercise. I know right?! I was able to find time to work out! Woo-hoo! 😊. All in all, it was a really good and productive day. I can’t wait for more of these beautiful sunny days.
