Today we were being visited by my in-laws. Rather than wait around for them to arrive and have both kids underfoot as we attempt to get the house ready I decided to take Andrew out of the equation and take him kayaking with me. This would give us a little time together out of the house and give Allison one less kid to entertain/worry about. It also helped that she could go to the store with only one of the kids. Andrew tends to make the supermarket visit a bit challenging.
Andrew did pretty well in the kayak with me. Having the whole seat to himself was a plus. He didn’t fidget around, too much and I only had to have him pull his hands out of the water a couple of hundred times. At one point I splashed him a bit with the paddle to get his attention. He loved it and wanted to be splashed more. That backfired.
