I think I mentioned Vincenzo started preschool last week, right? Today parents were invited to join their kids for a picnic, and I was happy to see Vincenzo made a friend already! I knew they were friends when, five minutes into the picnic, I saw they had made a game where Vincenzo would spit on the picnic table benches and his friend would stick a rock in each of the spit piles. Isn’t that cute?! By the end of the year I’m sure they’ll be having so much fun seeing who can make their wee-wee hit the monkey bars.
(As a side note, the three-second rule should never ever apply to park benches. Or monkey bars.)
With school in session, we now spend part of our day playing school at home. Vincenzo is usually himself, baby Rocco is Teacher Debbie, and I, naturally, am the teacher’s pet. Mostly we just eat pretend snacks for the hour, except when Teacher Debbie gets fussy and needs a binky.
But some things stay the same, and there are still a lot of flying ninja turtles around the house. This morning Vincenzo showed me the ninja turtle’s latest hideout. Do you see all the ninja turtles?
Of course you don’t! They’re all hiding in crumbs! (Betcha didn’t know they could do that, did you?)
And because the baby doesn’t talk, I’ll let these pictures speak on baby Rocco’s behalf.
