This morning Rory and I met up with Jennifer and Saffron and Marji, Gray and Baby Luke for a stroll along the river and play at Pier 5. The weather is slightly odd, as although it was sunny it wasn’t warm and it wasn’t long before Rory was asking for his mittens. We strolled home and stopped off for lunch at Almondine where Rory devoured a cheese and tomato quiche (it was excellent) before nap. In the afternoon we headed to a different park before popping into a very busy Jacques Torres to pick out a few Easter treats for the family. I’m trying to encourage Rory to become a little more independent and help get himself ready. As part of this we bought him this little basket which is a baby version of the ones that O and I use for our dirty laundry. He’s really enjoying putting his dirty clothes in it. Felt inspired by reading this today and feel very, very excited to have my boy home from his long flight and business trip. Roll on the weekend.
