I have been a bad blogger. Ignoring my blog and not sharing my stories. I think almost everyday that I should write about something but then the creative juices just do not seem to low when I see the white page waiting for my words. So I will try today to write a little story.
We were told that we are not permitted to take the dogs to the Fortaleza Ozama any more in the mornings so our little morning dog group and the 3 Dogeteers (like the 3 Musketeers but doggie style) had to find a new place to play.
We now go to the Playita at Montecino. We have to cross the pedestrian bridge over the Malecon which wasn’t easy at first as Teli was afraid of it. Then one day when Teli saw her friends Blanco and Lula crossing she overcame her fear and now she crosses without me having to carry her.
This walk is a bit rough for me somedays. First I have to go down the three flights of stairs at my apartment.
Then we go down the stairs at Calle las Damas
Then we go to the pedestrian bridge crossing the Malecon
Then we go down the stairs inside the Montecinos monument.
It ends up being about 9 flights of stairs to get Teli to the beach. then we have to do it all again when we go home.
But all the stairs are worth it when I see Teli playing and running and enjoying herself.
Now I have to get ready to take Teli out. It is 6:30AM and she keeps looking out the window and then looking at me. She is telling me to common mom, its time to go out and play.
Sand in my shoes. Sand in Teli ears. A little sweat but it is all worth it for my baby
