Cedar Point

Super belated photo post.  We met Grammy, Grandpa, Uncle J, Aunt K, Cabbage, and Bean at Cedar Point.  There was a really incredible kids' ride section there and a second smaller section of kiddy rides in the main park.  I was most worried about Spork being able to handle the whole day but he did fantastic; I think it helped that the bigger rides he went on (the Octopus!) met a lot of proprioceptive needs!  My only complaint is that the park food was less than stellar and we were too lazy to pack food that would have to last for a 4h car ride.  We got home super late and were completely wiped out for the following day, but it was worth it, and we'd go again!

Daddy's beautiful shoes

T:  Ooo, Daddy...your work shoes are beautiful.

Tater was delighted to win a hand sanitizer at Art Beat this year.  On our way to dinner, she asked, "Can I sanitize people at the restaurant?"  We agreed that she could sanitize the family's hands but not strangers.  This did not, however, prevent her from shaming a boy in the restroom who left without washing his hands.  "Daddy!  HE DIDN'T WASH HIS HANDS!  That's disgusting!"

Spork watched my dinner preparations with suspicion.
S:  Mommy, whatcha makin'?
M:  Chicken.
S:  It gonna be good chicken or bad chicken?

Spork was very happy to watch me painting his room.  I was amused by his running commentary, "Why you puttin' paint on the brush?  Oh, you're puttin' it on da wall.  Why you puttin' more paint on da roller?  Oh, you're puttin' it on da wall.  Why you puttin' more paint on da roller?  Oh, you're puttin' it on da wall."  It was really an impressive feat of constant talking.  I stopped answering since he seemed pleased to answer himself.

Overheard while Spork was playing with his Paw Patrol guys.
"Are you ready?"
"I was BORN ready!"

First Day of School 2016

The big guy is taller and possibly wackier.  He rode his skateboard to school this morning, so I believe his street cred is starting out high.  Also I don't think I can get away with saying 'street cred' out loud.  Good thing this is just a blog.

This one was up at the crack of dawn singing his lungs out and literally bouncing off the walls, he was so excited to go back to school.  "I going to my new classroom.  I not gonna be shy, I feel brave!"

Tater actually napped, glory be!  She came home all smiles saying, "It was different.  I liked it!"
