Xmas Time!

It’s Xmas Time again today! Liam Wallace is a whole lot bigger than that porchetta we made on his first Xmas and he takes up a whole lot of room as he spent an hour trying to push the Patrem out of bed (I was taking up too much space which he needed to stretch […]

Xmas Eve with Santa's cookie and carrot

Xmas Eve

Wow! It’s already Xmas Eve and the Patrem has just realized how long it’s been since the last post. There’s been a whole lot going on since the Micro-Dragon (who’s not really so micro anymore) joined the Giraffes, but I’ll have to get to that. Right now, it’s Xmas Eve, and Liam Wallace has enjoyed […]

Getting first day of proto-school instructions from The Mom

Giraffe

Can you believe it? It’s the start of another year at proto-school for the Micro-Dragon, and he’s gone from being an Étoile (Star) to an Ourson (bear cub) to a Girafe (giraffe). Let’s just continue using the English spelling of giraffe because it doesn’t trigger the in-line spell check. The parentals are having a little […]

Happy Birthday Liam! The proto-school's cake

Three

Can you believe it? The Micro-Dragon is three today. We’ve had a full late spring/early summer of lead-up activities to today, including space travel, house guests and a pre-birthday party (which we’ll get to), but today was The Day where we went from two to three. The Big Three. Hard to believe this was him […]

Gifts

Today is Father’s Day, the one day in the year that the now-defunct MCI identified as as the day with the highest number of collect call traffic out of all days of the year. This is different than Mother’s Day, where there is a run on flowers and the never-ending quest for a brunch spot […]

Thirty three

Yes, today be thirty three (months), and we start the Micro-Dragon’s countdown to the Big Three. The parentals asked Liam Wallace what he would like to do to mark the occasion. The answer: “iPad SVP!” (oh well, at least he says “please”). What he eventually decided upon was the following: Yes, that’s right – that’s […]

Liam Wallace's opinion of the view

Buffet Fu Lam

The little red blob in the distance in the following photo of a very grey day on the Big (still-frozen) Croissant is the Buffet Fu Lam. Here is a tight crop just to show that it really is the Buffet Fu Lam. The Patrem doesn’t really have anything against the Buffet Fu Lam but he […]

Climbing the mountain of snow

Long Weekend

So what does the Micro-Dragon do on the hump day of a long weekend? That’s right – put on the big boy (snow) pants before going outside in the blizzard to create a ginormous snowman… …climb a mountain of snow, …and then go for a long walk in the deep drifts. It’s choco-avalanche tomorrow.

Liam Wallace sharing iPad with Shiva

House guest

The Micro-Dragon is presently taking care of a new house guest for the next little while in the form of Shiva. That would be Shiva, as in the Hindu god known as “The Destroyer” and “The Transformer” but who also subdues the anger of Kali (some of you might remember Kali from The Temple of […]

Giant watermelon

Watermelon

It’s TOO BIG! Like Atomic Blankie! Watermelon covers everything! The Micro-Dragon decided to go out to supervise the parentals’ grocery shopping to ensure that appropriate items were acquired for his enjoyment. We came across an item at one of the local markets which required some hands-on up close and personal inspection. That’s right: a watermelon […]
