My wife is in Italy this week with her mom for a fun-mother-daughter-vacation-before-we-have-our-second-child-trip which means Noah and I are home alone! She’s only been gone for a few days (she left Saturday) and we miss her like crazy! But I’m glad she’s getting a chance to spend some quality time with her mom this week! She really deserves it!
A Boys Night In
Noah and I are also getting a chance to spend some quality time together this week as well. (Although we’re not eating nearly as good as we’re accustom to…my wife is an amazing cook!) One of Noah’s (and my) favorite toys are his Duplo cars and Lego City sets. They are easy for him to play with, he gets a ton of use out of them, and they have a ton of great occupational therapy benefits. I’m pretty sure he could play with them all day long (as could I.)
Tonight after dinner we emptied his huge plastic tub of Duplo blocks on the living floor and had a blast! In fact, I think we’ll do it again tomorrow night! Which also means I didn’t see a need in picking them all up. 🙂
A Messy Floor And A Full Heart
The picture you see above is the aftermath of tonights lego adventure. What looks like a mess to you is actually a great reminder of how full of joy my heart is. I love being a dad. I love being Noah’s dad. This kid has absolutely captured my heart, and I love how much fun we get to have together every. single. day.
Headed to bed with a messy living room, and a very full heart.
(Oh, and if you see my wife please don’t tell her that our living room floor looks like this, ok?) 🙂
