day 108: if there’s one thing that’s guaranteed to make my kids happy it’s going outside. They stand in the dining room, faces pressed up against the sliding glass door yelling “outside! outside” while staring longingly at the sky. It’s kind of heartbreaking actually since we don’t have a yard. This afternoon while they were napping I surprised them by cleaning off the patio (formerly home to lots of random trashy debris; like peanut shells, milk carton tops and dirt) so that they could go outside and play after dinner. It’s only a few square feet of space but at least it’s got the wide open sky above. They kept pointing up and yelling “MOON!” so I think it was worth it 🙂 They also liked to watch me blow bubbles (or bubbas as they call them). It was quite a pleasant evening.
