Three positive things, day thirteen

Tags: 

So today was the first day back to work after NYC Camp.

The first positive thing was sleep =) I got up a little early this morning to get everything ready for my day back to work, but was so exhausted after the weekend I went back to bed. What was rather wonderful was that my #awesomewife let me sleep in a bit, so I got an extra hour+ of sleep. And then at lunchtime I snook in another fifteen minute nap. After all that I was starting to feel normal again!

The second positive thing was going swimming with the whole family after dinner. The local YMCA, that we're members of, had been redesigning their family changing rooms, and this was the first chance for us all to see how they work, and, you know, go swimming :-)

The third positive thing happened when we were at the pool. One of the things we were having fun with was throwing a bunch of small colorful balls around to each other. I was carrying Kian while bobbing around in the water, splashing around and tossing the balls to the others. Along the way he started asking for specific balls, because clearly the purple one was better than the blue one. Obviously. Anyway, I was encouraging him to say "ball please" instead of just pointing and grunting, which he did after a little bit. Not being content with that, and because he appeared to spy a favorite, he told me "ringe ball" when he had grabbed an orange one. That's the first time he identified something by color! Quite awesome!
