Are you having déjà vu? Pardon the redundancy of a another swing photo, but it’s how we spend much of our days lately.
Wednesday was one of those afternoons that we couldn’t have planned two weeks in advance if we tried, and we often do try. Thanks to maternity leave, working from home, and part time schedules, three of my best friends and their respective kiddos were able to get up and go to the playground without more than a couple hours notice. There’s just something special about a drop-of-the-hat hangout.
When my friend Sarah invited us to her neighborhood playground, I pictured a few swings like the rather rickety park closest to our house. But to our happy surprise, this place might as well have been Disney World. Of course Desmond can really only swing anyway, but he loved watching all the kids run and be free and happy. And he always loves seeing his best buddies. We mommas didn’t mind catching up either.
