This weekend we met up with Seth's friend and her 3 kids who were visiting NYC from Australia. We decided to spend some time at MoMA since it was raining off and on an entire day. Her youngest son's name is David, so our son was very excited to meet someone with the same name as his. Austrailan David is only 10 years old, but he is so good with the kids, so patient and friendly with them. We spent about 3 hours with them and our son wouldn't leave David's site for a minute and surprisingly big David didn't mind it a bit. Every time we moved to a different floor, big David would open up a map and show our son where on the map we were . He would look at the paintings and talk to our son about them and ask him questions about a certain piece of art. I didn't have to keep an eye on our son as I knew he was in good hands. I wanted to keep him even though his sisters insisted that he's not always such an angel.
Since both our kids skipped their naps today, their energy level quadrupled once we arrived home. I decided to pre-occupy them with a little bit of sewing project to keep peace in the house. I glued two pages of a greeting card together to make it sturdier and punched some holes around the edges. Then I made a needle out of a pipecleaner and threaded a yarn through it. The kids loved "sewing" and after I showed it to them once, they were able to do a few cards without my help. Unfortunately, I made only 3 cards and David was done with them in 10 minutes. Julia completed only one because David wouldn't let me undo more than one card he had worked on before. We'll be doing it over and over again although David already told me that tomorrow he'll be learning to knit. I doubt it is going to happen anytime soon as I don't have big David's patience.
