I took the little jobber to a country club today.


No kidding — I had a luncheon to attend. All ladies. A ladies luncheon, if you will. I had forgotten about it until this morning so I packed Conal up and brought him along. He was a hit! All the ladies loved him — and he loved them. It was a love-fest. He was a little shy at first, because he had just woken up from a nap when we left the house. But, by the time we actually sat down for lunch, he was flashing smiles right and left. He loves being around people, especially friendly women all dressed in bright spring colors. Which is what everyone was wearing today. Even me! Even Conal! While not exactly country club finery, Conal was wearing a cute yellow top with a blue gingham tugboat on the front. Too bad I didn’t take a picture.

Speaking of baby/toddler clothes, Lands’ End makes the best playsuits. I have several striped polo-style ones that once belonged to Conal’s cousin (that LE no longer makes) and I wish I had dozens more. If I had my way, I would dress him in playsuits every single day. They’re like PJs, but only appropriate for going out and about. The best. Just the best.
