Father’s Day: A Succession of Moments

June 16th, 2008

But first, some photo notes:


–I’m growing a bodybuilder neck. And I don’t lift weights. Or work out (much). Thoughts?

–I don’t intentionally dress my children as hobos. It just turns out that way.

–Costco does not sell enough Kirkland wipes for Toots.

–We do not beat our children (although we sometimes submerge them in ice baths) as the discoloration on their right cheeks might suggest. Rather, we all attended a Kung Fu Panda reception Saturday night and the girls had their faces painted. Of course, Toots asked for the Viper on her face and has the distinction of being the only child at the party to do so. Again I ask: maniacal genius? or future herpetologist? (which is not a VD doctor).

–Ice cream is the universal salve. We need more of it in the world (the full-fat version, not sorbet. is sorbet even ice cream? I say no).

Neck: Go have your thyroid checked.

Toots and Laura would soooo get along.

I want full fat ice cream for breakfast.

Thyroid was the first thing I thought of with your neck, too. But it could also just be the way your neck is meant to be OR it could be that you’re a little too self-critical. My guess is it’s a case of you looking for flaws.

Great looking family.

Don’t worry about the snake stuff. I find it rather cool that the girl likes snakes. My own daughter loved snakes up until the time she was feeding one and it tried to take a mouse from her which made her think it was striking — it was a rosy boa. Mojo still likes snakes, but won’t feed them. Snakes are actually awesome.

As for ice cream, it’s all good. Unless it’s some sugar-free blah creation. While sorbet isn’t exactly ice cream (more of an iced dessert), it’s still yummy.

i guess i need to take a better picture of the goiter on my neck and show it to you. because, after you see just how big it is, you won’t be concerned with your own tiny neck…

No big neck, and I’ve seen it. Nothing, nada, zip. Normal neck in proportion to a normal head on a normal body.

But the photos…..ahh! Gorgeous subjects and gorgeous composition. I hope we see more.

This looks like one fun Father’s Day.

Ummm, the neck thing? You’re crazy (I mean that in the kindest possible way).

Messy kids are happy kids.
