I write this post with mixed emotions – as it looks like Winter wants to stick around longer than I’d anticipated (much like an unwanted boyfriend). Yesterday was absolutely glorious, as we gallivanted around town and even checked out the flowers in bloom at the Union Square Greenmarket (highly recommend!). But today? Not so much… and it looks like there might be snow mid-week? Eeks!
But back to sunnier times, aka Saturday, when Mr. Snuggles napped for much of our outing (which was good considering we had a rather active lunch date, followed by some off-the-cuff playtime at the Scandinavian house (great place to take little tykes, and amped with sophisticated style & design for grown-ups as well). Along the way… our little sweet pea was tucked up nice and cozy in his 7am Beepod, which always, invariably, generates envious stares and compliments from the chic-mommy-set of New York.
All in all, it was a fruitful and happy day for the family. We even scooted to Babies R’ Us in Union Square for some fantastic learning toys for munchkin (now that he’s older and far more alert, I’m ramping up on interactive gadgets, more on this later!). A tip for the discerning consumer: if you see something you like, always whip out your smart-phone and check for it on-line. Chances are you can buy it at a cheaper rate, plus get fast, easy, and free delivery (yours truly is absolutely addicted to Amazon Prime). Bonus: it also means that you won’t need to schlep your stuff around town! As hubby notes: “it’s nice to see things up close,” but it’s certainly much nicer if you don’t have to carry it yourself.
Ah – the conveniences of modern living! What’s inconvenient, at the moment at least, is the rather delayed advent of Spring. Here’s hoping for a repeat of Saturday sometime soon!!
