With a July moving date looming ahead of us, we've started spending our weekends looking at apartments. We've pinpointed
Apartment searching was kind of fun at first... sure, we found a pigeon in one living room (note to self & others: don't leave your windows open) and cracked countertops in another, but hey, that's charming, right? Sigh. Is it too much to ask for crown moldings, wooden floors and a modern kitchen? That's my dream and yet I'm not sure it exists (in our price range, anyway). We'll see... there's still time... all I can say is, wish us luck! I am confident that we'll find someplace great, because really, what other choice do we have?! Let's hope the power of positive thinking applies to Manhattan real estate. Mommy needs her nesting phase to kick in soon, as Baby S 2.0 will be arriving at the end of September, whether we're prepared or not!
We managed to jam a bit of fun into the long Memorial Day weekend (thank goodness!), hanging out in Ft. Tryon Park with friends who were celebrating their son's 2nd birthday. On Monday, we strolled over to Chelsea Waterside Park so Toddler S could splash around in some cold water. Summer has arrived (what happened to Spring, by the way?!), and watching her running through sprays of water was the perfect way to cool us all down. Wet toddler = wet parents!
