Things to Do

Man. We are having a ROUGH time at Casa A these days. There are fevers, tears, screams and a general dissatisfaction with the universe. Johnny's pediatrician told us there were two molars poking through the gum line when we took him for his one-year visit. He warned us that there might be some, erm, trouble as a result.

Yeah. Trouble. So here is what we do to distract the buddy from his miserable self:

  1. His new push car. I love it for shorter walks. It's light, easy, and there is the added bonus of watching how Johnny rolls- with one hand on the wheel and one arm out the window.
  2. The wagon. I'm not super confident pulling around the 'hood yet, but we're working on it. He loves it.
  3. Sidewalk chalk. Art therapy. Dusty teething sticks. Whatever works, man.
  4. The swing. My god, he loves the swing.

I am never inside these days, which is fine. I stupidly let myself get sunburned yesterday though.

So, how many more teeth is this kid going to get anyway?

Because it'll be cold soon. Then we're screwed.

Have you thought about perhaps using basketball instructional videos by Dean Smith and Rick Pitino as a soothing distraction? Just a suggestion.

Hmm, it's a good thought. God knows the kid gets enough of a Bobby Knight flavor in his life by observing my behavior.

Kidding, kidding.
