Thank you, sir, may I have another?

Cindy is taking a long long weekend and as a result, I'm off work today, too. There is something I love about being off work mid-week. And, while I love having family time with Chad home too, there is also something special about being on my own with Liam, the way it used to be. I'd bet that the very fact that there is nobody else to share the child care burden with helps; knowing that I can't shuttle Liam over to Chad in order to take care of stuff, I do a better job of incorporating time with him into my day.

Today, we went to Canadian Tire, where Liam rode around in one of the little cars for the first time, and loved it (clutching the steering wheel the entire way). We walked over to the grocery store to pick up a few items and then made a key lime pie. We went for a bike ride out into the country and past TJ Stables, where Liam got a kick out of the horses in pasture. After lunch we went outside; when Liam got tired of blowing bubbles, we turned on the sprinkler and he had a ball with that (well... except for when it hit him square in the chops, and he didn't realize that he could get away from it). We went for a trot around the neighbourhood in the wagon. And now Liam is in bed, tuckered out, which leaves me free to get ready for a party Chad and I are going to tonight.

I don't go back to work until next Tuesday, and maybe by then I will be sick of the endless games of chase and clamoring for stories and peace-making between Liam and Captain...

...but I doubt it.

Okay, now that was a FULL morning, I am tired for you both!! Minus the key lime pie I am green with envy.........something about citrus fruit and pie just don't mix for me!

Carrie, how did you get all that done with Liam? Last night there was two of us watching him and all we got done was the dishes. We had so much fun with him and he is so good.

It's because Carrie is perfect. If she wasn't so nice I would hate her (and so would everyone else).

Megan, stop being facetious!
