After the beach we rinsed off in the pool with Little Buddy's new bubble machine. Anything with an on/off button on it is a thrill for him, and it makes loads of bubbles so that is a bonus. That is Hank in the background photobombing the picture.
This morning we headed out for our one hour reservation at the splash park. He had so much fun and once again conquered the slide all by himself. I was so proud of him. I can guarantee you I am the only mother at the splash park that needs reading glasses to see her phone for photos and videos. I got a chuckle out of that. So many young and beautiful families out there having fun. I did meet a lovely grandparent couple who were there with their seven year old grandson. I believe they were also younger than me. Little Boy doesn't seem to notice the age difference in parents or siblings, we are his family and that is that.
Luna Tuna my granddog arrived yesterday and by evening these three were exhausted. She is here until tomorrow which is loads of fun for everyone. She now opens the door to the garage when she hears my car pull in and runs out! I have to be very careful I don't run over her. She is a pistol!
I feel the worst might be over with Hank's hair loss. He is still thinning a bit but it isn't as rapid and it looks like there is growth where the hair has fallen out on both sides of his head. We tease him about needing a comb over, I am happy he is quite unaware that he looks very different right now.
Freckles, just because they are so adorable.
This three day weekend is much needed. I saw 37 1/2 hours of kids this past week in four days. That doesn't include driving time. I was a bit of a wreck on Friday but am slowly regrouping. Tomorrow is Memorial Day here in the US. I am not working seeing kids but will get some paperwork done. Dad is officially on Little Buddy duty in the morning so I am not disturbed for a bit. Right now I am going to sit by a cute boy as he plays his iPad and I will knit. I deserve it and I can keep an eye on him and make sure he is being responsible with video choices and not downloading games he isn't supposed to play. I am almost at the bottom of the sweater I am knitting, ready to start the bottom ribbing. I hope to get plenty of knitting time in today and tomorrow. My goal is to get a good start on all the ribbing so all I have left to do is the sleeves.
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. I never forget the sacrifices made by so many to help our country remain a free democracy. It pains me to see that those in Congress forget these sacrifices and try to sweep an insurrection under the rug like it never happened or was just another day at the Capitol. I doubt the sacrifices of so many, including the police officers at the Capitol will change any of that.
Stay safe my friends.
