This evening I took my 7 month old nephew, Lucas, on a little hour-long walk around his neighborhood. It has been raining here in San Diego pretty much all day yesterday and today but it finally cleared up enough this evening for us to go outside. He loves being outside and I could tell he needed a change of scenery. It was super windy so I was a little nervous about being out with him. Once we got near the ocean, it was even windier but he seemed to really get a kick out of my crazy windy hair and watching all the trees blowing. He was laughing up a storm! Ha ha, no pun intended!
"There is no experience like having children. That’s all. There is no substitute for it. You cannot do it with a friend. You cannot do it with a lover. If you want the experience of having complete responsibility for another human being, and to learn how to love and bond in the deepest way, then you should have children" -Mitch Albom; Tuesdays with Morrie
