Finally got out of the house today. We met with some friends we haven’t seen in a long time and had a nice dinner at a cute brew pub in Waltham. Traffic was really light so we got there early and took a little walk down to the river and then stopped in for a visit at a very cool toy store where it required all my resolve to not walk out with some fancy German wooden toys. Bella was quite heartbroken when we left, too. But she cheered up at the restaurant, which had a very nice train table. Good choice for a family-friendly venue, Meghan!
A nice day today, hard to believe it’s the end of October. As you can see Bella wore shorts. But the fall colors are out: blazing gold and red maples like torches along the highway. I’m feeling much better, finally. Unfortunately, Bella’s getting a cough. Poor thing. There is nothing so pathetic as a little toddler with a cold. That cough just kills me. She’s never been sick before so it especially tugs at my heartstrings.
