Haircut

From Daddy: He’s been wanting a hair color for weeks. We were busy two weeks ago and we visited the cemetery last week with Goo-Poo, Vickie Goo-Goo, and Adrienne Goo-Goo, so we didn’t have the time.

Last night, on the way to a fundraiser at Mommy’s school, I stopped by to make an appointment for 9:30 the following morning. (At the fundraiser, over $22,000 was raised for science curriculum equipment.)

This morning, we walked to the salon. On the way, he asked if I would like to spend two months in space.

I told him that I didn’t want to.

He asked why.

I said that I would miss him and Mommy.

He said, “It would be okay” if he spent two months in space, “as long as it was not one year.”

I e-mailed Yeah-Yeah and Ngen-Ngen about the haircut, and they joined us. We played and then walked to Sheng Kee Bakery (or “Shane Keep” as I sent an auto-corrected e-mail to Mommy). After snacks, we walked to Cricket Wireless to show the grandparents their coverage map that he loves. It hangs on the wall and he likes to lay on their beanbags to gaze at it.

Later, he joined Mommy at preschool to play and then we had a playdate and dinner with friends.

Yesterday

I asked him if he wanted to go to McDonald’s this weekend and he declined. (Funny though, at the salon this morning, Google Now anticipated the possibility of our going and estimated the drive to have been fifteen minutes from the salon.)

Then I asked him if he wanted a haircut this weekend and he agreed. I asked when he preferred, and he replied, “Three, slash, twenty-two, slash, fifteen!” Yup, he meant 3/22/2015 which would be today.

Then I asked what he might want to do in terms of a playdate, and he suggested the friends that we visited tonight.

Mid-day was his swimming class. There was an evaluation in the beginning of the class with an unfamiliar teacher. We don’t know the result.

He was pleased to watch Despicable Me 2 on the ceiling-mounted video screen and I think that he wanted to stay to finish the movie, March 18, 2015, 4:28 p.m.

He’s been wanting to visit the dentist ever since watching “The Dentist” episode of Peppa Pig last year.

The Walking School Bus

The Walking School Bus, March 11, 2015

We were supposed to show spirit by joining the “Walking School Bus” to school. He was a little confused by the idea but decided to leave early because he preferred to play before school than walk to it. So we drove.
