An innocent enough question, right? Well, I woke up at 4:48 AM. Darus is pretty bossy first thing in the morning and full of spirit and energy. This morning was no different. Pee had leaked out of his diaper. I got him out of his evening jumpsuit and straight into the bathtub to clean and warm him up. I stripped his bed and put the items in the washing machine. Only to return to see -- our first ever -- code brown! Ugggggggggggghhhh. Jonas came to assist. Darus, of course, thought it was funny and wanted to keep sloshing around and wouldn't get out. I finally had to pull him out of the tub. Brought him into the shower in my bathroom while Jonas worked at cleaning up the bathtub. Overall, I guess, it wasn't that bad, but it sure sucked as it was happening. All of this and it's only 5:15 AM. We watched some cartoons and ate some breakfast and then it was off to the beach for a stroller walk and playtime.
I managed to get in 5 miles all while keeping Darus happy in his stroller. Not an easy feat. Now that he's getting older, he often times will only tolerate a few miles. He had fun playing at the park by the beach and then we got a message that some friends were down at the Venice pier so we headed back that way. Darus had a blast playing in the sand and chasing the ocean waves. We played until nearly 11 AM and then we headed home.
