Today we painted a bird house for the backyard. It was a bit of a trial for Papa, who would have preferred it look a little less like something had bled all over it but the boy had a good time. 

  • We bought the boy a sand box a few weeks ago. He typically enjoys playing in it for about twenty minutes before he is ready to move on—just enough time for me to get absolutely nothing done. 
  • He started doing this with his face last week saying, “I pirate, arrrgh.”
  • I painted my nails today and he insisted that his be painted as well. I love that children are so uninhibited by social folkways.
