I took Deeder to music class yesterday morning and it wiped me out. Despite our two hour nap following lunch I never really woke up again so instead of spending the 75degree beautiful sunshiny day at the park we stayed in our yard. It’s just as well…no threat of being kicked in the face by anyone here. The traffic always worries me, really though, if I watch over him carefully there’s no reason he should get hurt.

What a busy road we live on! I took some videos but wont bother putting them up because the traffic is so noisy that it drowns out Deeder’s talking.

Check out the new backpack I got him. Isn’t it great? It’s a child leash, trying to be disguised as a monkey lookin backpack. It is so worth the ten bucks that I paid. When Deeder makes a dash for the road I just grab the monkey’s tail and voila! my poor kid is stopped in his tracks. And he doesn’t mind wearing it which is good.

Music class was great!
Deeder participated pretty well, considering it had been months since we were there. The price has gone up (session is six weeks for $100, instead of $90 for eight), but Darren and I decided we’ll go ahead and enroll Deeder since he enjoys it so much. It’s an opportunity for him to get groovin to some cool tunes and learn to cooperate with group activities.

I guess I don’t have anything in particular to write about this morning. I’m just thinking about how fast the weather change happened when it finally came! We have mid 70’s temps (78F for a high today), green grass and even mosquitos. The landscaping guys have already been here to mow the lawn, rake out the flower bed, pick up winter’s fallen branches, and trim the bushes.

At 11 I have my 34 Week check up at the OB/GYN place.

Happy Friday. I hope your world is sunny too. :)

Even though it means swollen feet for Mommy–I’m glad the warmer weather is here.

    Sounds like Deeder had fun and as always I LOVE the pics :)
    The monkey ‘lead’ is a great idea. We just have a regular wrist strap for Zack.

    We were thinking of getting Lani one of those for our trip to Illinois this Summer. That way when she wants out of the stroller in the airport or zoo we can still have a hold of her! I think they are cute:) Love your pretty little daffodils. Our cat ate the buds off ours! DEVIL!!

    I totally thought the toddler lead WAS a backpack! It is SO CUTE how the soft monkey arms come down the front where Diederick can stroke them. For him, it is sort of like bringing a favorite stuffed toy along without having to carry it. For you, it is something easy to grab to keep him out of harm’s way. So nice!

    I like the photo of Diederick playing in the dirt. Remember how we kept a huge dirt mound in the back yard for many years, and how you children would make roads and rivers and tunnels in it? You all worked together like a little construction crew. :)
