Balmy February Day

I don't know what it the "official" temperature was in Castle Rock, but on the news chanel, is says it was a high of 65. I think it was about 57 here. I love it! Exercise class was a bit of a bust, as our instructor was ill and put on a tape...and to top that off, Kyle was rather fussy...RATHER. So, I left exercise class after about 45 minutes of doing the Windsor Pilates (not too bad for a day's work out) and then Kyle (as I knew he would) passed out in the car. I thought, well, I could head straight home and salvage an afternoon nap, or take advantage of some "Just Rory-and Me"-time. I did that!

Rory has been asking, begging, every day to go to the park. Well, it's the middle of Winter...so I have to say no all the time. Well, I pulled up to the park and his little face just lit up. I parked the car (let Ky keep sleeping)--it was LOCKED and I could see him just fine and checked often--so Rory and I PLAYED! We went on the swings (his personal favorite)--went sliding and had just a glorious 45 minutes together. He was SO happy. I was happy he was happy. Now in a couple of months I'm going to think 56--burrr! But right now, it felt like shorts weather (or capris?).

What a great mommy-rory memory. I love precious moments like that. They're so fleeting. I remember having all this precious time with Jakey as a little guy, but when the new baby came, those times seemed so far between, I valued them even more when they came along. You needn't make any apologies for letting the babe sleep in the car...anyone who knows you knows your an amazing mom totally keeping tabs on your chicks...I'm sure baby is none the wiser that brother got to play outside while he was in dreamland!

We can't wait until Spring. Thank goodness for Artic Circle with their indoor playground and free courtesy cones. On frazzeled days it's a great getaway for me & the kids.
