Mommy, Daddy, Colin Special Time!

Before the triplets were born Chris and I vowed to make time to hang out just the three of us so that Colin continues to know how special he is to us. So today while my parents watched the babies, we headed off to the Chicago Children's Museum at Navy Pier. I'd been before but Chris hadn't. I'm not sure who had more fun, Colin or Chris. Especially in the construction room!

We had such a good time together! In fact, it was all fun and games until we entered the water room. The museum provides cute little rain coats to use while playing. Still, somehow he managed to get completely soaked. Chris and I were oblivious of this fact until we left the room and noticed that his shirt, pants, socks and shoes were completely waterlogged. 

It was almost nap time anyway and clearly it was time to head home. There was really no other option but to take the wet pants, shirt, undershirt, socks and shoes off. We decided to put just his coat on and then drape Chris's coat over his legs because of course I didn't bring any change of clothes. He would have none of the coat being draped over his legs. Just preferred to head out sans pants. 

Alrighty then....

Off we went, through a surprisingly crowded Navy Pier, pushing a kid wearing only a winter coat and no pants. And there was snow on the ground outside. I tried to tell myself, "maybe people won't even notice", but they did! People were looking and one little girl even turned to her mother and said, "Mommy why is that boy a nudie?" Whatever that even means. 

We had a good laugh about it though and all that matters is Colin enjoyed himself. He was fast asleep before we even got out of the parking garage!
