Now really, almost any post about a 13 month old could have this title, right?
This week's exciting achievement is that Miranda has begun to attend Mother's Day Out! Yes, she will bravely be facing down adults and kiddos alike, every Monday from 9am-2pm at the nearby Methodist Church. She seemed excited when we arrived, didn't burst into tears when we left, and did really well overall. She cried a bit when another child got upset, but recovered with the administration of chicken, pasta, watermelon and a good nap with her ultra-soft blankie. When Dad arrived at 2:00, the staff said they were impressed!
Still in her proud Daddy's arms, so far so good.
Early training in the complex arts of negotiation and acquisition.
Take a hike, Mom, I've got this covered. See ya at 2 o'clock.
