As I predicted in my last post, while my kids were enthusiastic about going for an early morning walk, their enthusiasm didn’t last long.
Elliott was wearing sandals because his shoes are now uncomfortable for him. They aren’t too small, and they’re in very good shape. I think it’s probably sensory related.
Anyway, he was also getting eaten alive. The bugs love him, and he barely made it the first one and a half miles.
Emmett did okay, but he was pooping out pretty quickly. I relocated us to a different part of the park in a bid to avoid the bugs, and salvage the walk. Unfortunately, Elliott was done and wanted to go home. I got less than two miles in, and it’s a bit frustrating. It was a perfect morning and perfect timing, but I guess it wasn’t meant to be.
My disappointment with the duration of the walk aside, it’s always awesome to spend some time with my kids. I always learn something new, and I’m helping them to make memories that will hopefully last, long after I’m gone.
All things considered, it’s been a pretty great morning.
