Nicky’s daycare was closed after Christmas so he and Kate and I had a week at home by ourselves. Luckily, daddy had Monday off and grandpa Sam was around to help out at the beginning of the week, but by the end of the week it was just us. I’ve done many errands with both kids, but never an outing, so we decided to experiment a bit and the three of us went to the Children’s Discovery museum one morning (pictures here). Kate slept through the whole thing and Nicky was very good at exploring independantly, sharing with the other kids and listening to mommy. No one got lost, there were no tears and no temper tantrums. All in all, it was a success.
