lazy sundays

this week i took rover to the vet and discovered that he needs to get surgery to remove a little tumor from his ear. he gets the surgery tomorrow. it’s non-invasive and shouldn’t be too big of a deal, it’s just expensive of course. here’s rover on the way to the vet last week! thanks for the ride, max.

if you ever wonder what my work day is like as a nanny, this is pretty much it! smash sleeps in the morning, we do the lunch routine, and then we go sit in the park and hang out. usually we people watch while drinking coffee and writing letters. there are always musicians and performers and birds and teenagers in the park and smash seems generally content sitting in his stroller or in my lap watching everything going on.

he’s a happy, easy, quiet baby. most parents would be pretty envious i think.

when we want a quieter day, we go to chestnut park instead of rittenhouse. chesnut is this little park tucked in to the middle of a city block. it’s carved into the space where a business would have been. so it’s shady and hidden and not many people go there. but there’s a fountain and lots of tables for sitting at. i usually go there with smash to eat lunch.

smash’s grandma is in town, so it’s been all hands on deck, quite literally.

midway through the week, our friend welch came for a brief visit. we had friends over for dinner one night, and then went to a dinner at joanna’s house the next. here’s lizz making hir signature gluten-free tiny apple pies.

they held a drawing for someone to win a free cycle of olympic lifting training, something i’ve wanted to try, but it’s far too expensive for me. here’s one of my main coaches shouting my name because i won the drawing! i start olympic lifting training today and i’m really excited about it.
