It was a sweltering day- but I am proud to say that we left the house and took the kids to the park. Children everywhere- screaming and running in the water. My husband and I took turns following (more like chasing) our daughter from activity to activity- while the other sat on a blanket in the shade with Leo. A beautiful day full of family and sunshine. I didn't do the laundry. I didn't clean up the patio. I didn't read my students' papers (which scare me a little- they are sooo long). I didn't go through the pile of no longer worn baby clothes that are sitting in the bedroom. I didn't take the latest exercise dvd out of the shrink wrap. And I am not going to. I smell like sunscreen. And now I will make art and consider the day a beautiful success.
