New things in our lives:
Exersaucer. These things are monstrous pieces of ugly plastic and I hate them. But kids love them and they give me time to take a shower, so I'm not complaining. Too much. My friend gave us hers to use for Otis so we didn't have to spend any money on one.
Drawing. Not really new but Ingrid is definitely getting better at it. She draws these little guys all over the place. She said this picture was a family and they were dancing.
Wading Pool. Our local park, which we go to at least three times a week, has a wading pool. It's not chlorinated, they refill it every day, so it's easy on the skin and nose. It's free, and it's open 10-2, which is great. I hate pools that don't open until noon. That's naptime, dummies! Yesterday after we picked up Ingrid from school we went over there. She loved it! So today we packed a picnic and a blanket and spent the morning there. This little squirrel kept sneaking up on us, causing Ingrid to shriek in half delight, half terror.
