“Play is the beginning of knowledge.” – George Dorsey
Wise words. This past weekend was a whole lotta play for me & Gabe. I enjoyed every second of it! Since this semester started I haven’t had a helluva lot of time with my little man with exceptions of breakfast, lunch, dinner, & bath… and a little bit of reading, too. We went with Mom to Kees Park and he played his little heart out. I’ve created a slide monster, I’m afraid. I went with him on his first few trips down…. then he got brave & did it all by himself. His favorite part, though, was the little school bus they have. He loved “driving” it… and from the front he looked like a short little disgruntled driver.
We were there for quite a while. Afterward we went to Splurge. For those of you who are not familiar, it’s a frozen yogurt shop in Pineville. It. Is. AMAZING. Seriously. Momma got a wedding cake flavor that is incredible…. I opted for the cookies ‘n cream…. Gabe, of course, got chocolate, because I didn’t think he’d care for wedding cake or cheesecake (yes… CHEESECAKE. freakin’ cool. no pun intended). Go figure, he prefered my cookies ‘n cream, which was okay by me ’cause I liked the chocolate, too.
We ended our Gabe, Momma, Grammie day at Target, my store of stores, for diapers, wipes, and… well, I forget. Other stuff. We had a good day… I can’t wait for more like it. Holding out for summer! Got my mid-term grades back… A’s. Heck yeah… this may be worth it. Memphis here I come!
