This morning, we trekked up to Niles for The Girl’s swim lesson at the Leaning Tower YMCA. The weather was finally decent enough for us to enjoy it, so The Boy and The Tot played on the equipment in the attached playground while The Girl had her lesson. I sat on a bench in the playground area observing all of their “Mama, look at me!” moments and making a few phone calls to line up social occasions for the afternoon and next week.
When The Girl’s lesson was over, we went over to Target, as has become our custom, to pick up the 3 things on my list, have a snack, and kill time. The Boy and The Girl are at a double playdate at their friends’ house now, The Tot is sleeping and I’m enjoying some quiet time. Sometimes, the best part of a mother’s day is the part where her kids are happily and quietly occupied.
