I'm prepping for solo travel: Today I took the two kids to a Rockies game—at naptime—without Greg. Another mom in my playgroup had free tickets, so a bunch of us met up for today's afternoon game. It was fun for the hour or so that we lasted, but poor little Sidamo melted down due to lack of nap. He was crying, and I said, "Sidamo, if you can tell me what you're crying about, I'll try to fix it." He cried harder, screaming, "I don't wanna fix it!" So we left, and the looks I got pulling a crying and screaming little boy through a baseball stadium on a leash were less than loving. Oh well, we all survived and actually had a good time.
I feel so lucky to have found this group of moms in my neighborhood. They're so much fun, and their kiddos are beautiful.
