2nd children

Well, *apparently* Miriam knows her ABC song. Now, I know they must have been doing it at school because a few weeks ago I sung it "with" her, and she sung the "Now I know my ABCs" bit...

But Mark just started and she just got through *the whole thing*.

Allow this to be an advertisement for having other people look after our children. With us she would have just learned to eat olives on her finger tips (a favorite past time) and chase the cat.

Humourous postscript. I tried to sing it with her and she was having none of it. Mark is magic, apparently.

Second postscript - Zachary is playing violin a bit at school, and Miriam has been getting a bit jealous. I'm making her a box violin this weekend so we can all play together because she keeps saying ME VIOLIN PRACTICE. Yes, ma'am.

Pictures to follow.

Sleeping Baby. Flashback.

This is just a post to remind me that Miriam did, once, sleep. And sleep well. And by herself. Because she liked it. For *ages*.

Miri shares her slide

This is her second wind on her second birthday. About an hour before this she stumbled like a drunk toddler across the floor to put her grape stems in the trash and her dirty bowl back in the drawer. Then a quick revieving yoghurt stick and she was off to play on her slide yet again. 

Zachary rides again


Miriam got a scoot bike for her birthday! Zachary dusted off his bike and got back in the saddle. Today he spent about 2 hours zooming around an empty parking lot in our unseasonably warm 78F.
