The best thing EVER.

10 Mar

It is Seabass’ 10-month birthday today, and I’m excited to report that he is an absolute joy. 

Yesterday, I had planned to take him to the gym, drop him off in childcare, and sweat buckets in a spin class.  But as soon as I started to strap him into his carseat, I realized I didn’t want to do it –  I didn’t want to be apart from my baby for anything.  I even said as much out loud to no one in particular. 

So I took him out of his car seat, shed my spandex and re-clothed, packed a picnic, and brough Seabass and Murphy down to the park for a couple hours.  The weather was spectacular yesterday – you gotta love California in March! – and people on the street seemed carefree and a little giddy from the sun and the warmth. 

I took this video as Seabass watched some city workers trim a tree on the edge of the park.  For a little boy, is there anything better than a sunny day at the park watching a crane and guys in hard hats?  I think not.

    My little guy watched a bulldozer for an hour last weekend. He stood on the kitchen chair, looking out the window.
    Glad you enjoyed the day!
