Preparation O

I took the day off yesterday to hang with the family and go to a water park*

On Monday night, I walked into Owen's room and noticed that he looked flush. It was a gorgeous day so we had the windows open and it was cool but he was sweating his little butt off. I peeled back the covers and found him wearing a tracksuit over long jammies. I told him he looked warm and asked him if he wanted to lose the tracksuit.

"Is it okay if I'm maybe wearing a t-shirt and my bathing suit under this stuff? So I can be ready to go have a good day with you?" he asked.

"Absolutely, kiddo. But, um, take some clothes off, okay?" I replied.

Owen was a little wiener most of the day. He drove me nuts. But that, right there, was something special.

As it turned out, it was raining when we all woke up so after an abrupt change of plans we headed to a kids' museum in Baltimore and a nice dinner out.

If it's the Baltimore Children's Museum I'm thinking of (and really, there's only one) then I USED TO WORK THERE! For a period of time I came up with children's programs, like Fabulishes Jellyfishes (sister program: Fabuli Octopi) and Crabtastic Crustaceans. Ah, those were the days. Tell me, did you lose your offspring on the three-story climbing tower?
