I’m back at work again. Away from home again, but not so far this time. For most of you the school year has started Bean begins Pre-K next week and I’ll be home this weekend to help her get ready.
Bean’s wonderful babysitter, Holly Poppins is back, having spent the summer with her mother in England and she has already taken Bean to her very favorite New York City museum, the American Museum of Natural History (or as Bean says, and I can’t bear to correct her, “the muzz-eum of matural history”). Bean loves the whale. I think the muzzeum is an awesome destination for preschoolers–it’s grand and huge and has dinosaur bones and empty slightly scary corridors full of animals and native peoples and cross sections of mammoth trees to get lost in.
For Bean’s third birthday party she chose a whale theme. I think the big blue whale at the Museum of Natural History was the inspiration.
Even the whale needs a baths sometimes.
Bean, Mama will be home on Sunday. Until then, check out this super neat time lapse video of the blue whale getting a bath. I love you.
