I had forgotten what it was like to walk anywhere with a 3 year old. OK, so Max isn't 3...yet. Walking from the beach condo down to the water is like a trek across the Andes with this kid. Better pack some water and snacks. A rock, a patch of sand in the grass, a patch of grass in the sand...who know what could cause him to stop and ponder and comment. Any walk is like we are walking through a documentary.
"Look, a bug. I'm gonna squish it!"
"You don't need to squish it, the bug lives outside"
"Ooooh, look a 'pider (spider). I'm gonna squish it!"
"You don't need to squish it, the spider lives outside"
"Oh a rock. Look at the rock, Mommy. No crab in this rock."
And so on and so on and so on. It is very cute and very frustrating all at the same time.
