shared some of the details of my slumber party with my niece, but because I'm an equal opportunity aunt, I decided I also needed some one-on-one time with my nephew. Since I don't think he's quite ready for a sleepover, we went to the dinosaur/natural history museum instead.
The second we were through the door he started telling me all the things he want to do - first up, ride the elevator. I've never been to this museum before - but he has so I thought we'd be taking the elevator up to some of the displays. Turns out it is just an elevator to classrooms and he just wanted to ride it for the sheer joy of riding an elevator.
Next up he started talking about the computers - it didn't take long until we found one and he settled in and tried to make the games and learning activities work, I think he'll do better when he can read. But man, has he mastered that mouse.
All in all, it was a great way to spend the morning and I can't wait to spend more one-on-one time with both of my favorite little ones.
I liked Jakob Dylan as part of the Wallflowers back in the day, but I really love his current solo work, including this one: "Nothing but the Whole Wide World to Gain."
