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 […]

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 […]

Year of the Sheep - Liam Wallace and the cake kit

Year of the Sheep

Happy Lunar New Year! Today is officially the first day of the Year of the Sheep, which is also known as the Year of the Goat and the Year of the Ram. There’s some ambiguity as to which delicious ruminant it’s related to as 羊 refers to both sheep and goats. Irrespective, this particular cycle […]

30 months and enjoying the morning yogurt

Thirty

The Micro-Dragon is thirty today! Thirty months that is. We actually measured him just to see how much he has been growing since it’s evident by looking at him that he changes every day. Weight was easy because it was simply a matter of holding him while stepping on the scale, then stepping on the […]

Xmas surprise eggs from the paternal uncle!

Xmas

Yes, the Micro-Dragon gets to acknowledge that it’s Xmas again and not The-Religious-Holiday-in-December-That-was-Declared-a-Civic-Holiday-Openly-Embraced-and-Enjoyed-by-All-Denominations-and-Faiths like it was last year. So his first Xmas was spent box-surfing and being compared to a porchetta and a turkey while his second one involved a piano lesson and being carried around like Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra. What about this year? […]

Vacation!

It’s Labor Day! That means that summer vacation is over for most everyone, and children and adults alike are whining and moaning that it’s back to whatever as of tomorrow. The Micro-Dragon isn’t one of them though, and neither is the Mom. There is this phenomenon called natal philopatry, where animals routinely return to the […]
