A Place for Roo

A lot of you shared thoughtful comments about your own baby-feeding experiences in response to my recent posts. Thank you. It means a lot to know how many supportive women there are, each with her own story.

My household to-do list remains spectacularly untouched, but I have begun tackling two major motherhood items. One you heard about yesterday. And here's another step forward with the other. Buster snuggled in the sling long enough for me to check email, tidy up his room, and snap a picture!

Our beloved local Park & Zoo is closing down for major renovations in a few weeks, and I just read about the results of an auction they held, selling off various nostalgia items to raise money for the new and improved park. The carousel sold for $12,000. How cool would it be to have your own merry-go-round? A full-size 1943 firetruck went for $1500.

There were also smaller lots, like forty-three individual pieces of this bright colored maze. The highest bid was $250 for a section of wall.

I took one of my all-time favorite pictures of Q-ster there last summer.

I'm looking forward to the grand re-opening next year.

Aw, Buster looks so cute and snuggly! Glad you got that beautiful sling working.

You are doing an awesome job!
And you're two for two over me!
I was one of those non-milk producing mamas and I never did figure out the sling!
Hope you have a great weekend and happy Father's Day to Swingdaddy!

Your sling looks great! I'm sure it's a lifesaver with another small child running around.

That's cool, with the park, and I love the picture of the micro dude snuggled in. I only hope that works for me, too!

Love the sling. I think I will have to invest in one. Will have to get more feedback from you when I see you guys.

I am wondering what people are planning to do with pieces of wall from the maze?! We are sad that they are closing but the good side is that by the time the new and improved park reopens our little guys will be old enough to enjoy it too!
