The weekend got away from me

We were all over the place this weekend. I had the Boy Child at a birthday party for a while and then with me at the super market. I swear, at not quite four, he seems to be adopting some of his sister's speech formalism (I blame myself). When I asked him if David and Jack were is best friends, he pulled his thumb from his mouth and replied: "It would appear so, yes". Blew my mind. This on top of his six year old older sister telling me that another much younger person called her names that were "inappropriate". Sheesh.

Where was all of this wonderful eloquence when we needed it, though? No where. The kids, this Sunday, got to meet the Norwegian Crown Princess, ("my future queen", sayeth the Girl Child) and they were so shy they were somewhat struck dumb. The Crown Princess admired the Boy Child's Norwegian/American dual flag pin and told him that she had one of those at home, too. She seemed awfully nice. It was well worth meeting her, even if we had to drive to Queens, NY to do it. Never drive in Queens if you can avoid it. Enough said.

Now, back to work. Sorry about all the silence, by the way. Just overwhelmed and it won't get much better for some time, I fear.

"It would appear so, yes"

What a very cultured young man. Takesd after his father, it would appear.


Take time to breathe...

So how does one meet the Crown Princess of Norway?

Did I ever tell you my first dog was a Norwegian Elkhound? She had 4-legs, though.
