Oh! My Aching Back!

“My back hurts,” AdventureMan complained, “and I am really, really tired.” He slept in yesterday, and I went to the early service alone.

We’ve been helping our son this weekend with the Happy Baby while his wife is out of town. 🙂

It is so easy to forget – a baby is hard work! Especially a mobil baby, able to explore and who moves quickly!

Fortunately for us, he is also a very very good baby, a sweet tempered baby who is easily distracted from his more dangerous attractions, and who is not yet fast enough to catch the cats, who evade him easily.

We took him out for barbecue yesterday, and fed him baked beans, sweet potato and broccoli. He gets this concerned look on his face, but he doesn’t complain, as he explores the new textures and tastes. I also bathed him when we got home, because he managed to get his hands and feet sticky between spoons of food.

It was a lot of fun, and we understand thoroughly why God gives babies to young parents, LOL!

  1. I can so sympathis with the aching back. Happy baby is so very much fun to be around, but when he leaves, I ALWAYS have an aching back.
