So Charlie had a birthday party to attend this weekend. I realize that for most people this is pretty much the definition of uneventful. You show up to someone’s house, eat a little cake, watch your kids from a distance yelling things like “stop hitting people,” and then head on your way.
Charlie likes water, though, so I thought this was a good omen. We started him off in this contraption that’s basically like a large plastic sprinkler that babies can sit in and get sprayed from every angle. Huge Hit. Being the king of oral interaction, Charlie felt duty bound to try to get a taste of every little stream of water in his immediate area.
