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 […]

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


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 […]

Happy 2016!

Happy 2016! Liam Wallace kicked off the Gregorian new year a little pale from all the activities, though it was more from partying with his friend Dave pretty much all night and all day. Sort of this pale: This was taken a couple of weeks ago and not on NYE but the coloration’s about the […]

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


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


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 […]
