Rubberband Game

Walking back to our old apartment, my toddler fell asleep in the stroller. I knew if I carried him up the stairs, he would wake and be grouchy for the rest of the day. I couldn't leave him and I didn't have a cell phone with me.

I found a rubberband on the sidewalk, and made up a game, shooting the handle of the garage door. To challenge myself, I had to move back in increments of sidewalk squares and still hit the handle in three shots.

My neighbor came out and gave me a look when I explained what I was doing. I always thought she lacked imagination anyway, having once informed me "children like to play in grass." I was having fun.
