Sometimes Island With Stuey
Recently I haven't had enough one on one time with Stuey. I can just tell when he becomes extra needy. Or doing not-so-wonderful things to get my attention. With Nora in girl scouts, I have lots of mommy-daughter time with her on our way to/from meetings but haven't had good connection time with Stuey away from Nora.
This morning, Stuey was way excited at the prospect of mommy-son outing AND going to Sometimes island-a place he's never been to before. I knew the tides were low and I appreciated how excited he was to go check it out.
The rain and wind pelted us from the sides and our jackets were soaked just a few minutes into the walk. But it didn't matter as we walked across the mudflats towards Sometimes Island and the bunker on the island which Stuey was very excited to see.
On the return hike we took the beach route and the tide was starting to come in. Stuey took joy in seeing how deep the water was and testing out the heights of his boots.
