Left Turn Planning

We woke up today planning on taking the boys to Kennywood again. Grandma found some half price tickets, which means that we only had to buy tickets for The Boy. The Baby had a doctors appointment (Spoiler: 12 pounds, 4 ounces, and 23 inches long), and we would leave directly from the doctor's office to go to the park. First hitch: double meltdown at 9:30 when we were about to leave.

So, I calmed the boys down, with Grandma doing much of the heavy lifting. Mom took the baby to the appointment. They got back at around eleven, and we debated what to do. We didn't want to bring Little Bear to the park, only to have him fall asleep in the car on the way home and not get a decent nap. We decided to take two cars: The Boy and me in one, everyone else in the other. Second hitch: today was the first day that the park was closed for the season. Much disappointment was felt.

We went to the science center instead, and it was pretty cool. The Boy had a very nice time, although the museum proper was a little old for him and the young kids area was a little too young. The Sportsworks addition next door was a little old for him, although he did as much as he could. It was worth the $2 it cost us for admission (thank you, public assistance card). He stood at a urinal to go, twice.

It is still weird to look at him and see an otherwise normal kid. You know?

The rest of the day was uneventful. We got Rita's, and the boys were in bed a little early. Little Bear was picking fights with his brother for much of the afternoon, and The Baby was cute. The Boy did figure out how to fake sleeping in the car, as he fooled Grandma and me both in separate trips.
