Flying Solo

Brooklyn, 2014

Took Axel to swimming this morning as well as to his friend's 2nd birthday party down at Jane's Carousel. There were walks, taxis, and boats involved.

Of course, at this age, Axel has no clue he's at a party. He doesn't seem particularly surprised or impressed to see his friends out of context, it just is what it is. A carousel, balloons, bouncy balls, and snacks galore are just all in a day's work to him.

I spent much of the time wandering around after him, dozens of yards away from the picnic tables crammed with his little buddies, as he tried to befriend this caped superhero. Finally I had to put him in the stroller and walk around because the park was mayhem, and I was no match for his energy.

The moral of the story is that if you would like to interact with other adults at a children's birthday party, instead of spending the whole time trying to make sure your child doesn't eat goldfish crackers off of the ground, you definitely need two adults.

By the end of it, I was exhausted, he was exhausted.

How many hours 'til Will comes home?
