…been riding the metro a lot, just because TRAINS ARE LIFE for a certain toddler. Plus, the metro allows us to have an outing indoors for rainy days, and my wild child is surprisingly calm and still on public transport. We are especially into riding the metro to the airport, getting coffee, and letting Henry watch the planes from the main hall (pre-security), or grabbing lunch at Chick-Fil-A. …been building a lot of forts. Pillow forts, blanket forts, book forts, chair forts- Henry can’t get enough. And I can’t get enough of being invited inside to snuggle. … been going to the doctor way too much. The back-to-school germs have slammed Capitol Hill hard, and an especially nasty strain of HFMhad Henry the sickest I’ve ever seen him. It went away, ultimately leaving a double ear infection with a side of pinkeye. …been really thankful that the full time jobs I applied for this fall didn’t pan out. My part time position does not make any money after childcare, but it gives me time for the train rides and the forts and the doctor visits and the cuddles and the books and the discipline and the growing and stretching and learning that our family is doing right now.

Lately, on InstagramHey moms- don’t forget to be in the pictures you take of your children. Otherwise they may forget that you never failed to have a hair tie around your wrist. Oh, also that you had adventures and they made you the very happiest. But for real...Henry actually thinks that the word for hair tie is bracelet.Sometimes I think fondly on the majority of my life where I thought pumpkins were orange, before adulthood educated me on my poor taste in gourds.
