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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

New Year's Eve piano recital

Happy 2015!

Happy 2015! The start of the Gregorian New Year finds the Mom semiconscious from the lack of water and snoozies after-effects of the previous evening, and the Micro-Dragon knowing from The Fruit Song that like Aunt NeNe’s Atomic Blankie, watermelons are too big. And the Patrem? Jealous that this blog has generated more than 220% […]

Liam Wallace realizing he has to use a keyboard

The year in review

This is the time of the year when all the news shows legitimate or otherwise devote some programming time to the year in review. I guess we can do that here to see the Micro-Dragon’s year in review, especially as it’s Gregorian New Year’s Eve (not the good one). There is a lot of stuff […]

Xmas surprise eggs from the paternal uncle!


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? […]

Liam Wallace sitting in Seat 4F


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 […]

Breakfast with paternal grandparents

The army of frogs

Well, this was all that was left of the army of frogs created by the Mom today. Why did the Mom recreate the Army of Frogs that was first seen when the Micro-Dragon turned two? We’ll get to that. This lazy summer Sunday started lazily enough, with the Liam Wallace sleeping in until 03:45a (after […]
