All good things must come to an end…

…and so it is with our Maine trip. We had a great time playing on, around, and even a little bit in the water. It was fun to visit with the rest of the Zapolsky clan and catch up on various and sundry goings on. We’re back now, and getting used to not having the Atlantic in our front yard.

As a geographer by training, I personally believe, that this is the funniest thing I have seen. This year, in America. (And you all thought I was exaggerating when I told you stories of my FSU students!!!!!!!)

Analogies anyone?

So, I know a lot of parents think their kids are smart and we’re guilty of that ourselves. I’ll skip my wonder about the “napkin” incident and move on to Robert’s question of the night. At dinner, we passed the milk glass around, then we swapped one glass for another glass. Then Robert looked down at his dessert and asked what the difference was between swapping and sharing.

Dont know about you but I was pretty impressed by his efforts to differentiate between the two. (I said one was trading one thing for the other, while sharing was splitting the same thing between two people. I think Im right about that.) Gotta like a kid whos going to take the trouble to understand which word is the right one to use like that. (Whos my grubby little boy☺)

No more birthday parties on the calendar…

For now anyway, our calendar is devoid of birthday parties. That will give Robert some time to get used to “normal” days again. We’ve really enjoyed all the parties (and clearly he has as well) but the impact of his friends coming from the new mom’s group and his daycare class is pretty clear: all their birthdays cluster around the summer.

There are a few more photos from August parties in Robert’s section.

Birthday season continues….

Robert went to Ciaran’s birthday party Wednesday afternoon. There were a lot of kids and fun things to do. But, as usual, he really liked playing with trains. That’s Romeo in the foreground on the left and the blur in blue is Robert :)

Two Quotes
last update: 08/07 @ 21:03

Two quotes: (warning - perhaps of interest to grand and god parents only.)

Spurred on by Uncle Dan’s tendency to modify the refrain to “Who let the dogs out? (me me me me)” we use that phrase a lot. We had a rare break from our organic, home-made -three color dinners tonight and indulged in a feast from 5-Guys. (In my own defense, I did provide, via David, a few Brocolli spears for Robert, who preferred them to his fried hot dog.)

Anyway. Those who know Five Guys know that the only way to serve the obscene quantity of fries one receives is to rip open the brown paper bag and spread it out on the table.

The scene of French Fry devastation was almost complete, when Robert reached out, gathered up the brown bits and sang “Who gets the last crumb? Me Me Me Me.)

I just about fell off my chair. Then in a side whisper I asked David if it was just because I was his mother, or whether Robert was in fact exceedingly cute - when Robert answered saying, “I’m cute!”

Yes. I think he is.
