Verona Park was hopping Wednesday in the balmy 60-degree weather. We at MontclairKids wouldn’t miss the local news involving our kids, so we went to the park to check things out. Luckily, we call this work.
It was nice to see a crowd outside enjoying Spring in February.
We didn’t mind standing in line for a swing. We didn’t even mind when a local mommy (yes, mommy) wouldn’t share her Little Tykes car with a handle. Her wee daughter didn’t give a poo about the toy, so my 17-month-old sat down in the red plastic seat. This mom told my baby to get out of the car, and when he did, she wiped the thing down with a baby wipe and some antibacterial lotion. She was so dramatic about it that I’m thinking she should try out for a play at Luna Stage. (See my baby high-jacking the car at left.)
I’ll admit that my son stinks sometimes. And his face gets dirty when
he eats peas. But he smelled fine and looked nice in today’s springtime
air. We flipped her the bird (okay, maybe we just smiled) and moved
along to the monkey bars. While there, we saw a 5-year-old give her
mother a lot of neck-swinging attitude about wearing–or not wearing–a
jacket. But that mom was cool. She walked away, hands in the air. She didn’t care because she had to attend to her Blackberry.
We loved every minute. We’ll be back for more tomorrow. The weather
channel is promising sunny skies and a high of 52 on Thursday.
Did you get outside today?
