Me again Daddy. I guess you have figured out by now that if I'm writing it means two things, I've got material and Mommy's burned out.
So here is how we did her in today.
Since her little Mommy and Me mishap our Tuesdays are now wide open so today we went somewhere we have never been before... to one of those indoor
I loved it Daddy, I climbed and played and tried to keep up with the Crazies but, well, you know how they run, I ended up just hanging with Mommy.
The Crazies found a friend and sure enough it was a little girl just their size. The Crazies just loved that little girl and they said they were a "team" and kept going down the slides together holding hands. Mommy was trying to cheer for them but she couldn't because she had a lump in her throat and tears in her eyes, and I think she was telling herself that this is how life would be if Hadley was here.
I just let her keep holding me, Daddy.
Lucky for Mommy, more kids joined the "team" soon and she felt better. But then (here is where Mommy got tears again) she heard someone say "watch out team, don't step in the pee pee" and she didn't even need to look, she knew that the person who belonged to the pee pee puddle belonged to her. So Mommy climbed in and pulled Parker out and started to clean it up but the people at the front said they needed to do it and Mommy was secretly relieved.
Once we managed to quarantine the play area, Mommy changed Parker and we moved on to the cafe to see what damage could be done there. We did pretty good, I sat nice (had no choice, she strapped me in) and the Crazies ate while they sat down, stood up, sat down, stood up... the usual ants in their pants routine. Who could blame them though? There was a big fat Christmas tree right in that cafe, those shiny ornaments are like magnets. Parker (who else?) just could not sit in his seat and eat his grilled cheese so Mommy gave up and let him eat in front of the tree.
She packed us up and we left really nice. Once we were outside and Mommy was hanging onto all of us like we might run (because we will) Mommy looked in the window and saw it... little piles of chewed up grilled cheese hanging right on that Christmas tree next to those ornaments Parker was loving. Merry Christmas Play Place, Parker left you a present.
