Triumph!

I got out of the house today!  Ok, ok -- I know all of you who are not encumbered with two under two have no idea how BIG this is -- just humor me for a second.  My next door neighbor, who has a newborn and a 2 1/2 year old and I, with my newborn and my 14-month old, loaded up our double strollers and walked to Milo Borden Park.  The babies slept in their strollers and enjoyed the shade and the breeze.  The big girls got to swing and climb and slide and run around.  The mammas chased and spotted and gabbed.  Not a bad effort, I must say.  We even laughed as we panted our way up the hill that had been a pleasant downward roll on the way to the park.  It felt so good to be out in the sunshine and to stretch my legs. I feel like I've been sitting for months.  The kids looked adorable enjoying what might be one of the nicest days of the summer.  Pictures, you ask?  Oh, gimme a break!  I was lucky I remembered to bring the children.

Hear hear! I can totally relate.

As a fellow two-under-two-er, I wrote a post on this very topic earlier this month. You can check it out at http://1yearapart.blogspot.com/2008/07/cue-rocky-theme-were-out-and-about.html

My entire blog is dedicated to managing two kids one-year-ish apart ... I would love to build a community of moms similarly situated and welcome your feedback and contributions!
