The park

Today I decided we'd go to the park for a bit, I always said from the start I'd be the type of parent to take Al outside in whatever the weather, the reality being far from the idea.. this year will be the struggle to keep his hat on & gloves & I'm not liking the struggle so far.

but it wasn't bad today so I got away with it. we only popped out for less than an hour though, we had to get back home for nap time & my ironing pile, which ever resembled a sesame street character sat on my dining table..

Al's not bothered with anything but the swings, as long as there's one free for him he's happy.
he's the most contented child I've ever known, taking life at his pace & nothing more. he teaches me to slow down, that sometimes you just have to stop. and just live in that moment.
