PARENTING, TRAVEL, AND LITTLE JOYS
Start All Over Again
“Keep on beginning and failing. Each time you fail, start all over again, and you will grow stronger until you have accomplished a purpose - not the one you began with perhaps, but one you'll be glad to remember.”
The Olden Days
“It was back in the olden days, when dinosaurs roamed the earth and you were in high school.” - my 5-year-old
Me: What do you want to do?
Max: Hmmm, we could rest in savasana and recharge with some whole grains.
Me: Are you asking to lie on the floor and eat chips?
Max: … yeah.
What non-parents see: a fun box that contains everything to do 15 experiments!
What parents see: a box that probably has a plastic dish and a rock in it, which inexplicably expects that you have soda, vinegar, sand, a very delicate scale, baking soda, popcorn, balloons, a thermometer, food coloring, glue, a lot of plastic bottles, 3 measuring tapes, SNOW, and a partridge in a pear tree so that you can all cry together while you wait a week for mold to grow on some bread. Bread not included.
Seriously, this is the perfect Christmas gift. For someone you hate. Please don't do this to your friends.
“Can we watch that show where sad people cook boxes of garbage?” - Max
... He was talking about "Chopped".
The number of Very Hungry Caterpillar tasting plates we've made is... not low.

Elephant Birthday Cake
I'm lucky to have known this elephant for over 8 years, at the Elephant Nature Park in Thailand. What a cool birthday cake. P.S. don't ride elephants. Thanks.

Take All the Time You Need
Max: You have to give me 94 ideas.
Me: Buddy, I don’t have 94 ideas.
Max: I’m giving you all day! If you can’t come up with 94 ideas how do you even have a job?!
Max: … take all the time you need.
