I keep forgetting to blog! Maybe it’s because I checked my blog stats last month for the first time in a couple years, and realized that a lot of my old readers are FORGETTING TO READ my blog. Thank you to my loyal few. I heart you!
Anyway, not a lot going on here. People ask me what’s new and I say “Nothing,” and that’s probably how it’s going to be for a long time. We’re done having babies; we’re done with the house remodel; we’re just sitting around waiting around to get cancer or for one of the kids to get married so that we have a better answer to that question. (Is that insensitive, the part about cancer?)
As I type this, Rocco is sitting at the island sorting pennies by date for a homework assignment.
He holds one up to me.
Rocco: Wow, this one is OLD!
Me: Yeah? What year?
Rocco: Two thousand FIVE!
(He later finds one so old it is hard for him to think about. 1989.)
Leo comes out of his bedroom saying, “Do you like the outfit I chose?”
(I put this here so that if any of you see him today, you know that it was not me who put this ensemble together.)
Of course, his older brother has recently been spotted wearing the outfits below, so I can see how this has led to the some style confusion.
Leo is still sleeping on the floor every night and I knew the nesting had gotten out of control when he began actually using the mattress as a blanket.
(No, I didn’t let him sleep under that.)
During his brother’s conference, Vincenzo spent a half an hour arranging cubes to write a message to his friend. It reads “HI NAI.”
Kai, we had to point out, is spelled with a “K,” not an “N.” *hand to forehead*
Here’s how Leo waits for his brother’s bus.
He’s holding out a stick. I ask him, “Are you shooting things?” “No,” he says. “I’m fishing.”
In the afternoon we return to the bus stop and Leo picks up his stick again. “Are you catching fish?” I ask. “No,” he says. “I’m shooting things.”
And that’s a whole blog post of nothing going on.
