Throwback Thursday…way back.
Funny story. When my oldest daughter was born, friends of the moms made a quilt with squares from different people in their lives. In my 24 yo wisdom, I thought it would be funny to simply put the silhouette of a sperm on my square.  Years later when she was old enough, she asked the moms what it was. They deferred to me to explain my bad humor.

Hi dbd,

Just wanted to write you a note to let you know that Finn is doing an outstanding job learning the saxophone this year! I would really recommend having him start taking some private lessons outside of school, and I’m happy to give you some names of teachers in the area if you’re interested in this.

Also, I believe the Green Mountain Youth Symphony is starting a band and that would be another fun opportunity for him. It is so exciting to see the students able to do so many things on their instruments, and excited to extend their learning by taking on their own musical challenges outside of school time. He often comes in to class wanting to share a “solo” that he has learned- and they are very impressive!

Enjoy the vacation week.
Best,
H

He has been teaching himself "Glad You Came" from The Wanted. It’s been really excellent to listen to him figure it out. He went to school on Tuesday and played it for the entire band after only a couple days with it.

Not only did this 3 year old leave the house on his own and walk to an arcade, but somehow got INSIDE this claw machine. 
While I would have lost my shit if I were his parent, he is kinda my new hero.

Wow…these are brilliant.

Friday afternoon Finn notes. They are becoming a thing.
So many gems in this one. The P.S. is amazing though. I just imagine a film noir scene where some choice words were spoken and the lemonade found itself on the wrong side of a knife.

Sooooo….

In the last couple weeks, there has been a truly ridiculous increase in the number of new followers here. I can never tell is it’s just spam-bots on a rampage or if there are real human beans behind those quirky Tumblr names.

If you are in fact real, let me know and tell me why my dribble appeals to you.

Here’s a question mark for you (to answer directly from here)?

Regardless at what age, children are never responsible for their parent’s happiness. 

GPOY: Finn and I each night when the lights go off.  We are a little narco.
Happy Friday lovelies.
Here are more bunnies snoozin for you.

I shit you not, a case of vodka just fell out of the back of the truck in front of me. I think the universe is trying to tell me something

I’m not trying to be funny, but are you sure he’s not a midget with a learning disability?

Remember that time I hit my head on the ground (repeatedly) doing hand release pushups?
Or I have a hickey on my forehead.
You decide.
