If the calendar is correct, Liam Wallace will now have been in school for 100 days. Today is technically Day 101, but we’ll just call it 100 days, especially as there was a snow day which closed the school for one day last month. More specifically, it was a giant band of freezing rain that […]
So, is everyone feeling lucky today? Today is the first day of the Year of the Dog, though more specifically it’s the Year of the (Earth) Dog. The Micro-Dragon was partying last night at the paternal grandparents and while he’s too young to be suffering from the effects of the hair of the dog, he […]
We got the hint at breakfast yesterday that the Micro-D would be really interested (ie. content) if we held a special family outing at the Cosmodome. However, in spite of his valiant efforts including drawing a map to show how to get there, the parentals had something else in mind, so this would be the […]
Yes, I know that Groundhog Day is every February 2nd, and today is February 4. I also know that for those in the Apple ecosystem, the 4K/DolbyVision rerelease of Groundhog Day is currently selling on Canadian iTunes for a limited time at CAD$ 7.99, which is a pretty good price for a 4K film. Even […]
It’s already 2018! And Liam Wallace has hit sixty six! Months! The Big Croissant is coming out of what has essentially been a month-long deep freeze, with the Micro-Dragon managing to avoid getting freezer burn on his little yellow butt in spite of going outside a few times for activities including showing the maternal grand-parents […]
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 – […]
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 […]
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! 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, […]
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 […]
