Another Reason I Do What I Do

It’s been almost 1½ years since I went full-time in my business, and I’ve been thinking recently about the myriad of reasons why I did it…and wanted to share an important one. This is Joshie, now 3. When I launched out, he was 1½…and in some ways it felt like we weren’t connected, or not […]

Translation of a Two Year Old

Tuesday, December 15, 2009

Joshie’s newest vocab explosion is in expressing negatives..as in not wanting to do something. As shocking as that may be for a 2yr old, we have a little tweaking to do. He doesn’t quite have the grammar down, but makes up for it with emphasis:No, I hungry!=I’m not hungryNo, I go nap!=I don’t want to […]

On Being A Dad…

Thursday night we went to a play (Charlotte’s Web)…all of us, including Joshie and baby Maddie (who did outstanding, btw). Josh was sitting in my lap for most of it so he could see better, and out of the blue at one point he turns to me and says “Love you daddy” and gives me […]

Josh’s Phases

For the longest time, Josh only called me Dada. Then a while ago, he only called me Daddy, even going so far as to say Daddy any time he saw the letter D. (Yes, at 20 months he is recognizing letters…homeschooling starts early with us!) Today, though, I’ve been relegated back to merely Dada. And […]

Josh’s First Haircut…

Coming up on 18 months, Josh’s hair was beginning to get a little long… …but we couldn’t see shelling out $30 or so for some place like Fun Kuts. Plus Sammy wanted his hair buzzed again. So today JoAnn bought salon-type clippers. Buzzed Sammy. Cut mine, not quite buzzed. Then Josh’s. Now he looks like […]

Tell Me He Doesn’t Understand!

Yesterday Mika began teaching Josh to say yes, complete with the head nod. He was getting it well, except like any good American, reduced it to “yeah”. But did he understand what it meant? Well he’d just gotten into the pantry and was near some Hansen’s Mandarin Lime soda…so I asked him if he wanted […]

The Effects of Global Warming?

I was sent to wake Josh up from his morning nap, and when I got there, he was basically laying a pool of sweat. Well, his head, anyway. Soaked up by the bedsheets, but it would have been a pool otherwise. Kinda gross. But he’s always been a heater…but fortunately not as bad as Mika […]

All This Learning Is Making Me Tired…

Josh has been on the learning version of a growth spurt recently, mainly between climbing and talking. And boy is he gonna do both. A lot. And often. But for now he does take pauses or just plain passes out… So far his faves appear to be:In climbing: climbing up on the arm of the […]

The Power of a Big Brother

One of Sammy’s endearing traits is his sock selection, with his favorite pair being red. And apparently they go with anything and everything, even if there is no other red on his body. But he’s not wearing them today…this is an important point to make. Tonight, Josh was getting into his diaper bad and pulled […]

A Talking Storm…

So yesterday Josh decided to do a change-up: instead of saying “maaamaaaa” in that little baby, barely discernible voice, he’s changed to a full-blown, extremely clear “mama:. Last night there were a few times he was saying it almost in a demanding way: “MAMA!”. And, of course, he gets a kick out of us getting […]
