Today is Patriot's Day in Massachusetts, also known as "Marathon Monday" for the Boston Marathon. I'm a lucky duck that gets the day off. I haven't been to the marathon, since I was a girl, when my dad would round us up in the car and go to Framingham to hand out water and orange slices to the runners.
Instead of taking Will (by myself, since Daddy is working today) to the Marathon, we went to an Earth Day-themed playdate at my friend Ro's house. We played on her swingset, made a caterpillar out of an egg carton and even saw a HUGE earthworm! (I'd be lying if I said I wish he'd been more interested in it. The days of being interested in creepy-crawlies are around the corner, I'm sure.) We also planted little plastic pots of sugar peas. It's my hope that if he's involved in taking care of the peas and helping them grow, that he might be interested in eating them. I'm not holding my breath, though!
