The Asmo's ancient Small One escaped his cage, went all the way to the stairs, down, across the kitchen, up to the open window, out of that and into the shed where he was reacquired while sorting through the flower seeds.  :)

And The Asmo, he is proud of his old, barely walking-capable Small One and his epic conquest.

Awww, yay, good for the Small One! He indeed had an epic adventure! I do hope you let him enjoy his victory with a few seeds before reacquiring him.  :D

Oh, it took some time before the absense of Small One was noticed. He did get to do some digging and munhing and being self-satisfied.
In Asmo's grey lump,
wrath and dark clouds gather force.

My boy achieved his 10th Gup belt in his Tang Soo Do Karate this weekend and my daughter finally learned to use her bicycle brakes on our local hill. A good weekend!  :)

Our little boy is two today. I can't believe it *sniff* *sniff*. I saw a very pregnant lady at the grocery store yesterday and I almost cried/hugged her. It goes by so fast.
"We’ve thought of life by analogy with a journey, with pilgrimage which had a serious purpose at the end, and the THING was to get to that end; success, or whatever it is, or maybe heaven after you’re dead. But, we missed the point the whole way along; It was a musical thing and you were supposed to sing, or dance, while the music was being played.

Happy Birthday, little chap!

At two, I expect he'll have some idea of what's going on.

It certainly does.  My standard advice to new parents is "Don't blink or you'll miss it".

The birthday boy on his new bike. It's hysterical; it's one of those bikes where you back pedal to brake. He keeps accidentally braking and it's like he and the whole bike kind of pop upwards every time. Cracks me up.

Yay, the gift of independent travel - the best present a parent can give.  ;)

Finally got around to cleaning out a bag that was sent home from T's preschool at the end of the school year (like a month ago!  I'm a slacker.  And the bag was in an easily forgotten corner.)  Anyway, along with his blanket and extra set of clothes, they sent home an envelope of art projects and what not that he had done over the year.  Two pages really struck me.  In both cases, they asked him to draw himself, and wrote down his comments as he explained them.

What a difference 5 months makes in a kid's development, huh?
