It has been one of those weeks. You know the weeks where you are kind of lazy, don’t really accomplish anything, but wonder where the time went.
Last Friday we were supposed to head out for a walk with our usual Friday group, but Paige had other ideas. Her two bottom teeth decided to make an appearance that morning and so once they were through I had my hands full with a real little fuss bucket. I am sure the cold was not helping matters. So Paige and I spent the day snuggling on the couch while I sang the same song (Rose Rose – a campfire
song I learned in Brownies) over and over for hours and rocked her. It was about 1:00 am before she settled down enough to sleep.
The week-end was spent waiting for the rain to arrive that they kept calling for and we need, but alas it never came. So we headed out for a shorter hike at Heber Down Conservation Area where Paige decided she needed to be in the carrier rather than the stroller which was fine with me. She had a nice nap while we walked around and Tessa (our Golden Retriever) had a chance to play in the pond with some kids.
The earlier part of the week was quiet with daily stroller walks up the road and still no signs of rain. We really need to get some rain since things are already so dry. I am concerned what this means for the summer and our well.
Yesterday was a big day for Paige. She woke up with a new skill (clapping her hands together) and couldn’t wait to show me. Then at lunch she got to use a fork to eat her frozen mango with and she was quite proud of herself with that.
Since Paige and I were starting to feel somewhat better we headed off to the zoo for the afternoon to watch the animals. Paige was really enjoying her time at the zoo and interacting with some of the animals. She loved the Great Barrier Reef pavilion and watching all of the fish (I am sure we could have spent an hour there). She also had fun watching the turtles and the gorillas.
