The first time my little nephew came to visit me in Chicago was when he was 2 years old. Now he’s 6 and heading to first grade. It’s amazing how time changes things. When he was 2 years old I was pretty exhausted after his visit but this visit was much easier being that he is much more independent and doesn’t require being held or strolled around.
The 2 year old
His recent visit to Chicago, as a 6 year old, included a trip to Millennium Park, the Children’s Museum at Navy Pier, Ed Debevics and of course Starbucks. Although, his favorite activity was riding the bus and train everywhere we went. I was a little worried that he wouldn’t be able to handle all the walking that comes with navigating the city but he was such a trooper. He never complained once, even when we were out and about in the rain. Each day I packed us a lunch and we headed out to tour the city. I miss him already!!
