It was quite a hot & humid day today, so we picked an indoor venue for running amok today. The mall in Tyson's Corner (about 20 min away) has a really nice indoor playspace, so we decided to check that out. Of course, everyone and their brother had the same heat-beating idea, resulting in rather a bit of congestion, but Soren and A didn't seem to mind. They ran around and even got to take a ride on the little train. Poor Eleri, though. She napped for about the first hour we were there, but when she woke up, she desperately wanted to get down and crawl around. It was really just too hazardous, however. (I saw another little crawler narrowly miss getting clocked in the head by a rampaging toddler running at full speed.) She more than made up for it after we got home, though, crawling all over the living room. She's getting so fast!
Soren's new favorite thing to do, apparently, is ask, "What're you're doing here?" It's definitely replaced "Whatzaaaat?" as his most frequently asked question. Several times today, he was saying it at least once every 30 seconds, for minutes at a time. It's getting old. That & the whining, I could really do without! And, oh god, the "I want"s. Not like he pitches fits in stores asking for candy or toys or anything like that (if anything, he's much more well behaved when we're out in public than at home, and I'm very thankful for that). But try as I may to
Anyhow. It was not a bad day, overall, but the very end of the afternoon was tough, and I was not in the best of moods when Tom got home. Sorry, Tom.
Ending on a positive note! I took advantage of Eleri's 6am wake up call to get Soren signed up for some fun rec center classes that'll start next month. (Even hitting the registration website that early, it was horribly bogged down with traffic, and the classes were filling up fast.) There's a music class during the week that he'll get to take with A, and then on the weekend he'll have a swimming class that Tom can do with him. So that'll be fun. :)
