|G and I today after getting my haircut!|
So I pampered myself for the first time in 4 months...I got a haircut! No I didn't get it colored or go get a pedicure (two other things that need to happen)...because when you have an infant who is nursing, it's just too hard to be away for longer than 1.5 hours at a time. So thanks to my parents for watching the little guy so I could cut off some split ends!
After my hair appointment (and watching some of the events in Madison on CNN...exciting! Way to go Wisconsin!) we took William and G down to Navy Pier to tour the Chicago Children's Museum.

|One ticket to Madison where all the excitement is happening please!|
I think William's favorite room was the water ways exhibit where the kids put on the provided raincoats and got "All Wet" in playing with the water.
|Happy Boy was excited to watch cousin William play all day!|
|William "All Wet!"|
|William soaked his button down, his undershirt wet too!|
|The Museum was exhausting for G|
We had dinner at the Pier before heading home...and to my delight Lakeshore Drive was quite clear at 6pm.
My free Uddercovers nursing cover arrived today...it's the same basic design as the one my mom's friend made for me (but not quite as nice)...it'll be nice to have a backup but I definitely wouldn't recommend buying one for the retailed $30. Find a friend who can sew and ask them to make you one...it'll be much cuter and cost less.
After putting G to bed (which I guess wasn't...since he was up for 2 more hours) John and I headed down south to see our friend Emily in a play ['Doward Facing'] at the Dream Theater. This was the first piece of theater I've ever seen in Chicago...and the first play I've seen in at least 4 months. It felt good to be in a theater again, I must say. The play was a short, well organized 60 minute play about relationships. It was sweet and heartfelt, Emily was very truthful and it was fun to see her perform (I think this was my first time seeing her onstage, eventhough I've known her for almost 6 years). Afterwards I got to connect with a couple Actors Theatre of Louisville Apprentice Alums who had all come to support Emily. It's always nice to talk to apprentice alums...
And it was just nice to be at a theater...no matter what theater it is...it inspires me to keep going.
