Hiding the Phone

From Daddy: This morning–before dawn–he asked me what time it was. I told him to look at the (illuminated) clock in his bedroom. He wanted me to look at my phone. Again, I directed him to his own clock. In retribution, he unplugged and hid my phone. Thus began some serious consequences. It was not the worse thing he did today.

It’s So Sparkly


(or click https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IjZVU5Hn5SA to watch his basketball highlight)

From Daddy: On the way to basketball this afternoon, stopped at a red light on Sunset Boulevard, I said to him, “I spy with my little eye…the ocean!” He didn’t see it so I had to point it out to him.

“Is that the thing with the big waves?” He asked. “It’s so sparkly!”

This Morning

Thank you Uncle Albert for joining us for breakfast. He was hoping for Denny’s, but there wasn’t the time. Still, we had a great time.

Lunchtime

We got to watch The Amazing Race over lunch. Yay!

So Not Cool

From Daddy: This morning, he fell ill and was up and down for most of the day. As he said weakly early in the day, “This is so not cool…”

He seemed to be mostly recovered by mid-afternoon, but unfortunately we didn’t get to have a playdate with Uncle Albert. Uncle Albert come over briefly this evening just before bedtime, so he got to chat with him.

May

He was ill near the end of May also.
