The first half of our day today was spent doing various chores around the house. David mowed while I did kitchen cleanup and vacuumed up all the Maverick tumble weeds.
While I was getting ready for the day, Ayden got an old tube of mascara out of the trash. I didn't think he'd be able to get it open so I let him play with it. He was sitting right at my feet playing with a few small items, mascara tube included. All of the sudden I had that moment that all moms experience once in a while. You know, that moment where you all of the sudden think to yourself, "he's way too quiet..." I turned around and looked down to see that Ayden had figured out how to get the tube open and hen proceeded to use the mascara wand as a hair brush. Awesome.
|At least its in his hair instead of his eye!|
Once we were all ready to go (and the mascara had been scrubbed out of Ayden's hair), we set out for the farmer's market! We always enjoy the market. It gives us a small taste of the city and gives us a chance to talk with like minded folks. David made a couple of contacts who said they would LOVE to have some volunteer help. David can learn a thing or two and they have some extra hands during the peak of their season. Everybody wins! We bought a couple of things then walked to a local juicery. We got a mixture of Granny Smith apple, cucumber, lemon and ginger. Fresh juice is always so exhilarating and tasty. Ayden fell asleep during our walk back and transferred to his carseat without waking up.
We are about to switch to a convertible carseat and I've been worried about having to wake him if he falls asleep. We've had a couple of times recently where he transferred easily without waking, though, so I think it's going to be just fine. The older he gets, the more soundly he sleeps. This is a great thing!
Have you been to a farmer's market yet this season?
