Patrick and I got up early to go to the Seaport Celebration at Terminal 2, which was opened to the public for one day. It was a free event, sponsored by various companies that work on the waterfront. It was a bust for us, Patrick threw a HUGE tantrum, he wanted to play with some toy trains, but just wasnt in the mood to play alone. He totally gets to up and beyond a tantrum that its almost like a rebellious fit. I don't tolerate that, so we left. He wasn't happy with me when he saw us approaching the car. I had to take matters into my own hands, and pretty much Mommy-handle him. I put him in his carseat where he proceeded to bite my wrist... luckily, I am immune to such acts. Meaning, it doesnt hurt
I got into the car, he was still raging, and I thought.. Why today, why did he have to bite me, but it was over as quickly as it came on. He hasn't bitten me in so long, that I forget when, he started talking and the biting just went away. Which I am very happy about.
So on our way home, I thought about taking him to a park, but not just any park. Some place fun, quiet, so we trekked in the opposite direction of home, and first tried to go to Elk Rock park, but I didn't know exactly where it was, so we headed down a street that Daddy said had a park, but it was years ago that he told me this, but we found it, and also found a really nice place to spend some time.
We got to the park, after eating a bit of lunch and I was still leery of his attitude. So I tested the waters, to see if he would mind and follow directions. I left my camera in the car once we got down to the River, so I said we had to go back, and here was the true test. He actually followed me back to the car... PHEW so, once we got down to the River, son immediately hit the dirt looking for rocks to throw into the water...
He fell asleep on the way home. After a short visit at Grammy's, who was having a garage sale, we said goodbye, headed home, and now he's asleep... which means.. I can A. take a nap myself B. work on packing (were are moving) C. organize D. Nap..... I think I shall choose nap
