Busy Weekend

From Daddy: We had a very busy weekend!

This Afternoon

We had a playdate with one of the kids his grade from his school. We started with lots of time on tablet computers. Then we hiked along the historic trail above UCSF.

When we returned, there was more tablet time, dinner with pizza, a cookie, and a trampoline. He later said, “My best playdate ever.”

We started with a trip to Home Depot. Then we made a quick stop at Walgreen’s before sharing some Egg McMuffins at McDonald’s.

He enjoyed 1.5 Egg McMuffins at McDonald’s in Daly City, but he did not appreciate this photo being taken, June 29, 2014, 9:48 a.m.

Afterward, we visited J.P. Murphy Playground. He said that it was okay to go with me but “Mommy always falls on me and scratches me.” He understood that she didn’t try to do so.

Yesterday Morning

We walked to the cacti on Judah Street (which he claims no longer interests him). He raced ahead of me and touched a garbage can, so we proceeded down 21st Avenue to the hair salon to wash hands, etc. However, it was 9:25 a.m. and it would open in five more minutes.

So, we headed around the corner to the bank to deposit $10 to his K2C Kindergarten-to-College account. The kind teller allowed us to use the restroom to wash his hands (and he impressed her by knowing how to say it in Cantonese).

Then we proceeded to Sheng-Kee to buy a snack. He selected a bolo bao for us to share. That morning, we’d counted out fifteen pennies, so as I was laying the pennies out on the counter beside our bolo bao on a tray, another bolo bao in a take-out bag appeared to our left. I remarked that it was the same as ours. The mom who bought the bolo bao had her daughter in tow and told me that it was the plainest thing that could be bought that her daughter would eat. (Interesting, because for him, he is the least picky about breads.) We happily ate our bao and then continued to the salon.

At the salon, I had him wash hands again. I was going to make an appointment for his haircut tomorrow, but when the TV was about to air The Lego Movie, he whispered, “Daddy, can I please have a haircut?” He was so distracted by the movie that he didn’t even mind when the blower was used on him.
