Homework is rarely ever “fun,” but it sure is a lot more enjoyable when I hold my little Marianne while I complete assignments. ^_^
She loved watching me do my homework online and I even let her enter a few answers as I told her which keystrokes to make and let her push the enter button to submit the work. I thanked her for her big help in my studies, and she positively lit up! Aww. Now that my homework is out of the way, I promised MA that I’d take her to the park now that the sun is shining brightly, birds are chirping and flitting about and spring is so close I could throw a stick at it. ♥
I hope Dani and Lori can tag along, because the day is too beautiful to waste home!
EDIT// I ended up taking Marianne to a dog park in Genzano where people take their dogs for walks, and she absolutely loved it. Too bad that Dani couldn’t come along (she was busy with her homework), but I’m glad Lori could. We were whole, in a way: dad, mom and child! I have tears in my eyes just thinking of that.
Anyway, I think Marianne really enjoyed seeing all the big and little dogs, we asked the owners if we could play with them. Remember to ALWAYS ask before you approach a dog you do not know, and even ask with those you do! It is respectful to the owner as well as the animal, and it is also a big matter of safety.
Lorenzo taught that to Marianne today, and we didn’t even have to remind her to say “please” and “thank you”. Her favorite was a German Shepherd who was a retired police narcotics and drug sniffing dog named Joker. Joker is all black, a very shiny coat and he and Marianne became instant friends. Aww! He would nose her and tempt her to chase him around the park. Ahah!
I spoke with Joker’s mommy, she has a child about Marianne’s age who is in preschool now. She told me about the pictures her son Davide drew and painted of Joker that are hanging on the refrigerator. When it was time to say goodbye, Lori and I ended up taking down the phone number of Davide and Joker’s mommy so we could stay in touch; perhaps Marianne would like to make a friend in Devon and I know she’d love to play with Joker again! ^_^
What a wonderful experience… And I even made a new friend.
