Made for Walkin'
I had a bit of alone time with Boy2.0 today, and I was wracking my brain trying to think of a way to keep him entertained. Then I had a realisation: We could just go for a walk.
You see, he's at this perfect age when he's completely mobile in a world that is still new and exciting to him. Which means that going for a walk is actually a HUGE adventure! I mean, we spent 20 minutes investigating a stick on the ground. Not the most intellectually stimulating time of my life, but to see him make the stick become a sword or a pan or a plane or sandwich (yes, a sandwich) in his imagination brought joy to me. Did I achieve anything? No. Will he remember today? Of course not. Was it time well spent? Definitely.
