Shawn had a man-outing on Saturday, so I had my first foray into double-child duty. Up to this point, even when Shawn was on a business trip, we stuck close to home.
I recruited Jules and Danny, and we knocked out a fun-filled day of activities at National Harbor, including checking out the new Children's Museum.
While it may just be a really big playroom with new toys, it did the job.
Robbie was a charmer.
Anna Helen? Not so much.
She's had a couple fussy weeks and was in full force on Saturday.
Luckily in a loud room of toddlers, a wailing baby in a Bjorn goes fairly unnoticed. And a room full of parents helps keep an eye on your adventuresome toddler- sends their five year old to retrieve Robbie's shoe out of the playstructure, grabs him when he tries to run, etc.
I did get my first "you are adventurous" and "they sure are close in age" comments from strangers who realized that both kids are mine.
Thanks to Jules and the whole village of DC parents who made our outing as successful as it could be.
Raising ruckus. Edwards style.
