Picture Day

Not counting the soft launch in August, we are now fully into the second month of school (!) for the Micro-Dragon. It’s going fast and packed with events. For one thing, we’ve already had a Professional Development Day [aside: there are no less than sixteen PD days over the course of the school year – […]

School!

A week ago, it was the Micro-Dragon’s last day at proto-school. That was certainly a great ride. However, today was a new phase in his ongoing adventures as he started off with SCHOOL! The real one that counts, where he’ll start the path of learning to acquiring all the skills he needs to be able […]

Last Day

We have come to a very big milestone in the life of the Micro-Dragon: it was the last day at proto-school today. All the parentals can say is “wow! where did the time go?” We know from the calendar that it’s been exactly 1458 days since the first day of proto-school, when he ignored the […]

FIVE years old!

Five

Five! Five! The Micro-Dragon is FIVE! The parentals feel a little well, wiped right now. Five years ago, the Mom was tapping me on the forehead saying “it’s time”, with my replying “go back to sleep, it’ll pass”. After the multi-hour induction and after the Mom threw up (on me) before eating my peanut Glossettes, […]

We’re back!

Well, gee, that was painful. Following the ascendance of the Cheet-O, The Patrem decided to move services into another jurisdiction with better data safeguards, like France. Oops. They almost had their own near-death experience, with long lines of ex-pats not able to exercise their franchise because the bureaucracy lived up to its stereotype. So spend […]

Dirt

The year of being a giraffe is starting to wind down and Liam Wallace is about to transition from a group named after a very tall animal to one named after something able to intake oxygen via an epidermal route. Okay, fine. What they do at proto-school during this part of the year is take […]

Four

Can you believe it? It’s been four years since the Micro-Dragon decided he needed to come out and have a little stretch. Four! He’s not so micro anymore; still a bit thin (tiny butt) but definitely quickly moving towards vertical parity with the parentals. Also walks, runs, talks (lots), eats (limited diet). Sings show tunes. […]

Year of the Monkey

Happy Lunar New Year! Today is officially the first day of the Year of the Monkey, though more specifically, it’s the Year of the (Fire) Monkey. The big event was of course last night, and everyone congregated at the homestead as having the Eve falling on the weekend meant that there was more effort possible […]

Liam Wallce waiting for bacon

Berries

This would be Liam Wallace with his Saturday morning anime hair sitting patiently with his morning biomoo for delicious bacon. While he looks a bit mangled from yet another cold and some big-league nasal congestion (probably inherited from The Mom – you know, gigantico), he’s surprisingly functional. He’s mentally preparing for his inaugural session on […]

Forty two

Forty two! The Micro-Dragon isn’t so micro anymore and is now 42 months old. Forty two! That’s 3.5 years old as he starts the 2016 countdown to birthday number four. Forty two also happens to be the year of the consulship between Emperor Claudius and Gaius Caecina Largus, though we’re not completely sure why that’s […]
