I am trying to get outside with the boys more. I like to be outside, but I also like to get things done. And most of the things I need to do are not playground-friendly. So, too often, we just stay inside. I try half-heartedly to keep the boys entertained while folding the laundry. Many times, we all end up frustrated.
I know it's better for everyone to just get out and get some sunshine. Today we did it twice! It was some kind of record. We went to the playground in the morning, and the pond before dinner. In addition to all the fun and beauty, a bonus was that the boys were asleep by 7 pm. (Plenty of time to spare before the all-important 7:30 30Rock time slot.)
