It was a landmark day. The first day my baby was going to be away from me at a school-like environment (since he starts 4K this fall, I suppose it's time to prepare him!). He's only ever been with a friend or family member when not with us, so it was a big event for the whole family. Mom got a day off, Dad got a morning off, and Gavin got to see what it was like to be at "school" (actually a gymnastics day camp).
I'm happy to report that both activities were successful. And, of course, Mom had to celebrate her mom's day out with an appropriate non-kid-friendly outfit and appropriate non-kid-friendly activities. I did bring an extra Shout wipe, in case of stains, but amazingly didn't require it. (Probably something to do with the kid-free status?)
If you're in the San Francisco area, and were debating about getting the the costume exhibit at the Legion of Honor before it ends on July 19, go! It's pretty amazing. Not cheap ($41 a ticket), but some amazing examples of dresses that are testaments to engineering and design. Just incredible.
