This is the park that has opened up the nanny pocket of our neighborhood; I had no idea there were so many! I'm getting to know them and the nanny world. There's some drama; nannies stealing jobs, etc. They are very sweet and affectionate with their little tots and it makes me happy. They don't know yet that I espeak the Espanish and understand what they're saying to each other. Thankfully they haven't commented yet on how slouchy I am dressed and whether or not I smell sweaty (we've been going right after family jog in the morning).
Along with the nannies, of course, come kids. A lot of them are about Jude's age, which I love. Some of these little kids I want to eat up. They are so cute and lovey (and good sharers with toys). A couple of the kids I think, "Well, at least you have a Mom who loves you."
|Here Jude is with one of the kids I want to keep. Such a sweet boy.|

- Whenever a Presidential campaign comes around, I usually smirk at the people that put bumper stickers on their cars. I smirk AND laugh when, after the elections are over, the stickers for the losing parties are still on cars. I am usually not in favor of bumper stickers of any kind; it usually ends up looking junky. I also have always removed the dealerships' license plate frames from any car I've ever driven. I feel like it makes me a marketing pawn when I've already given them an arm and a leg. However, for the next few weeks I'll have this gem on my back window:
I guess I feel strongly enough about this election. When Obama got elected I thought, "Well, I didn't vote for him, but I'll be his #1 fan if he gets the job done." He didn't.
