But now that Theo's engrossed in Legos and they are both obsessed with Disney movies, some days they don't even show any interest in playing outside. Lame. So today when Dexter asked to play outside after we got home, I scrapped any plans for a decent dinner in exchange for spending the last hour of daylight with my baby boy outside. Theo enjoyed playing in the leaf pile I raked until he'd destroyed it, then he was pretty much pouting until I let him go inside to play Legos. I checked on him intermittently before dragging Dex back in so I could pop those frozen corn dogs in the oven for dinner. So what? They loved it.
Oh, and as Dexter and I were putting toys back in the garage, Theo opens the door and asks to go on a wagon ride. I was happy to hear that he'd changed his mind, but told him it was too late. At least I did something I've been FAILING at lately - I remembered to grab my camera to capture a few cute fourth minute of fall moments.
The purest, sweetest, most innocent joy.
I guess I don't totally hate fall.
