Last weekend Matt was in Tucson for a guy’s weekend visiting a friend. Since he was gone, I asked my parents to come up to give me a hand with Hadley for a couple days (and what grandparent could turn down time with this sweet face…?
We had such a productive weekend (although Hadley has once again proven herself to be the most stubborn child on the planet – I swear the girl decides not to nap just to spite me!). My parents fixed a part of our fence that a storm had started to blow over, helped me pull all the weeds/grass in our back garden beds, which had been seriously neglected with the crazy summer heat we’ve had, put down some fresh mulch and a few new plants, and to top it off, got Hadley a swing for the back porch!
Typically, Hadley cries or whines at anything new. It just takes her awhile to adjust, so I assumed a swing would be the same way. Not so. Although she doesn’t have the longest attention span for swinging, she has been so content when I stick her in there. Not to mention, the girl LOVES swinging high… it’s a good thing the swing we got has a strap to keep her in there!
