I remember when I used to think that long weekends were not nearly long enough. Now, the regular two-day weekend can feel endless at times.
Fortunately, this past weekend (the Victoria Day weekend in Canada) was just about the right length. We played, we visited with friends, we set up a tent in the basement, we wandered around the neighborhood, we got the youngest child an “okay to wake” clock and got ourselves a few precious extra minutes of sleep.
We also hit a major developmental milestone… well, our son did. He learned to use the remote control, mostly. Once we’ve got the Netflix menu up and the TV on, he can pick his own shows. Which explains why the kids have been so quiet in the basement from time to time.
