I detest the heat. And “the heat” is hotter with J because, like all two year olds, she dawdles everywhere. Even in the very hot hallways of my building. But we managed yesterday’s heat by spending a lot of time at the playground. The water was on and she seemed to enjoy it.
But poor baby J fell down a couple of steps yesterday and scraped up her face. My friend was right in front of her, but somehow couldn’t catch her. Note to self: don’t let people without experience with kids watch your kid while she’s on concrete steps.
The fall came late yesterday after not napping. J without a nap is a dangerous thing. But she did have a good morning.
J seems happy enough today. On the way to daycare today she petted a dog and watched him as he went up the block to a tree to relieve himself.
J: Doggie? Up there?
Me: Yes, the doggie is making pee pee outside. That’s what doggies do.
J: [looking incredulous] NOOOO!
It seemed to be a mind-blowing revelation (or possible preposterous lie) for J. It was hard not to laugh.
J has created a little bald spot for herself. When she’s tired, she likes to take her left hand and pull out hair. After trying other remedies, I’ve decided to get her a short summer haircut to combat this issue. I just hope it works.Blogroll
