I feel like we're just getting back into real life after the holidays. We were so totally blessed to have Todd off for like 4 WEEKS!!! Don't worry folks, he still has a job. He finished a case right before Christmas, got 2 weeks off (what the?) and then wasn't staffed for another 2, or was it 3, weeks! We mostly loved it. Although I will confess he was starting to cramp my style at about the end of week 3 so I sent him into the office just so we could not feel so abnormal around here. Cause you know, we're all so normal usually.
Anyway, since Todd can never sit still and because we're all a little cooped up in our apartment we filled our days with fun New Yorkish stuff like taking a carriage ride through the park. The boys had been begging me to do it. I think it was somewhat anticlimactic for them, possibly because it was negative 500 degrees out.
The Jewish Community Center nearby has free Saturdays and the activities are perfect for my high-energy boys, lots of "tag" games.
It was hilarious watching these bigger kids try to fit through Ben's little legs. He loved every minute of it-once again Ben keeping up with the older kids.
We took them to the Children's Museum of Art in Soho and afterwards got some hot cocoa at a nearby Starbucks. We were decidedly the only 20 somethings with any, let alone 3, children. Makes you wonder...
Are we surprised? For those who don't know Todd well, he was given the gift of being able to fall asleep in any and all positions and places, with or without children in arms.
