I took the kids to Willow Springs park yesterday with some of the ladies from my playgroup. Didwe have a good time, you may ask? Well, Mallory had a great time. E and I, on the other hand, weren't as delighted as she was. I won't go into all the details (pooping out the diaper, no back-up clothes, naked boy in the sun covered by the blanked used to clean up the pooping-out-of-the-diaper mess, screaming boy b/c there wasn't enough milk in his bottle, naked boy not enjoying being strapped in the carseat (where he pooped out of the diaper), and on...), but Mallory loved being free of my hovering. A few of my friends watched her for me as I tended to Ethan and they weren't as strict I usually am around the playyard. She enjoyed her freedom while I sat on the sidelines with my heart in my throat as she climbed to the top of a BIG slide with a big smile on her face, all the while trying vainly to calm a screaming baby while my friends watched on (trying not to have pity). Anyway, this picture captures how much fun Mallory had yesterday.
