Second Day of the Spring Break Marathon

Or that is how I feel. When I think back to what I ate for breakfast today, it seems impossible that it was just this morning.

That is was fifteen hours straight of childcare will do for you.

Today was much more pleasant than yesterday. For a lot of reasons. Today did not involve as much poop as yesterday. And today included a play date with one of Jack’s classmate. Which meant a play date for me as well.

We decided to go to the Museum of Science and Industry. It is 350,000 sq ft, so I figured even with Spring Breakers everywhere, there is no way it would fill up. I was wrong. It was packed. I couldn’t even find parking in the lot.

Angelica watched the twins while I brought Jack and Ben.

My friend Rebecca brought two of her three kids. Jack’s classmate, Luke, and his older brother Nathan. It was really cool to walk around with Nathan. He is 9 and can actually read the exhibits and talk to you about stuff. I hopefully got a glimpse of what it would be like to have older kids. If this is what it’s like, I’m sooo looking forward to it. My sister said from age 6 to 12 is the sweet spot. They are old enough that you can reason with them, but young enough that they still like to hang out with you.

Here are some of the highlights from the day…

Sometime I forget Jack is just a little boy, until he does something like this - holding hands.
