Preschool guest

Day off to hang with my favorite girl and her class: read books, oversaw a craft involving ironing crayon shavings between waxed paper, playtime at the park and lunch. 

So cool to see Ava with her kiddie peeps. And one made me a picture! Just like when I was in news: my fan base seems to be girls 5-12 y.o.


Livestream of #sotu from http://m.whitehouse.gov/live is 15 seconds ahead of broadcast TV. Internet wins once again.

Me, telling bedtime stories in the dark: "Dylan: what did you think of the Goldilocks story?" Ava, from her bed: "Well, it made me bored."

Say what?

Dylan had his speech therapy follow up this week for tests to make sure his expressive language is still increasing as it should.

Standard range for his age is a score between 85 and 115. He got 123 and the therapist says he knows some concepts that usually don't come until ages 5 to 7. Perhaps like noting that without its blanket, the bear "is naked."

Tooth fairy alert

First lost tooth! Already?! It feels like she was born just a minute ago.

Tooth fairy visit

Clearly I'm getting as big a kick out of this early childhood stuff as the kids.
