As was the case in many parts of the country, it was hot as heck in our area this weekend. On Saturday, after a morning trip to the beach, the little guy was having trouble napping in the heat. So instead of fighting that battle, I put an old blanket on the living room floor, added a few pillows, and just sat there with my munchkin. The Cydermaker turned on the baseball game and joined us on the blanket too. And there we were, just being a family. And you know what. It was really nice.
Both my husband and I can be real busy bodies when we are around the house. Usually one of us is off tending to something else (the yard, garden, dishes, laundry etc.) while the other is playing with the kiddo. Having all three of us sitting on that floor, with nothing else to do but “be” was truly great. Sounds so basic, I know, but honestly, it just doesn’t happen that often. There’s nothing like a heatwave to bring a family together!
The photo was not taken this weekend. It was too hot to drag around the camera. It was taken on Memorial Day. Grammy was sporting a spiffy patriotic ‘do-rag, and the little guy thought it was pretty funny.
