Weekend Walk (with Guests)

Today we had company for our weekend walk. Gram and Ona came along on a meandering walk from Tribeca to the West Village and back again. Stops included Washington Market Park for fun at the playground, Jacques Torres for chocolate, Housing Works thrift store for bargains (including Henry’s first baseball: $1), Magnolia Bakery for cupcakes and the Hudson Diner for lunch.


New Hires

My au pairs for the week have arrived. Gram and Ona arrived yesterday. Our daycare is closed for the next two weeks, so they are here to watch Henry for the first week of the closing. I am happy to have them here not only to watch Henry, but also to spend some time with them.

Today we took a long walk through Brooklyn because Gram had never had a chance to see Brooklyn Heights or the Brooklyn Bridge Park. Although thoroughly exhausted, we had a great day.


Toy Box Trap

We keep a toy box in the living room in a futile attempt to contain Henry’s things. He enjoys taking things out much more than we enjoy putting them back. Anyway, the mishap in this video below happens about once or twice a week.
