MOMA

According to the disgruntled artist in the foreground, MOMA has mis-attrbuted this piece to Jean-Michelle Basquiat, when the true artist is Zack-Cole Malootian. I'm sure a correction will be made immediately.

His father's child

Zack and I were walking last night. He pointed out plants in someone's yard and said "You have those leaves, Mama!" 

"Yes, those are hosta." 

"Pasta plants? That's awesome!"

Walking

This boy did an awesome job of walking Georgia last night (though I think she went easy on him). She can be a challenge (Rabbit! Dog for whom a grudge is held!) but he kept control. And he and I got a nice chat out of it, too.

Doodles at Dewey.

About a month ago, on that super hot weekend in April, Kelly and I took Zack, Arianna, and Jo Jo to Doodles at Dewey. It was a great weekend to go to the beach. Z and A are great together--they keep an eye on each other and don't get into trouble, so it was relaxing for me, too.

May the Fourth be With You

This was taken May 4th, Star Wars Day.

I'm so glad I made this blanket. It seems to make a really good cape.

Mother's Day

This boy and I went out for ice cream on Mother's Day. The shop has shelves fill of books and games. When we sat down, he asked if we could play Connect Four when we were finished with our ice cream. What a great time we had! He was a good winner and a good loser. We laughed when the gate let loose midway through a game and we had to start all over. We had a great afternoon.

Cicada time

These guys are all over, having come out four years early. Zack and I think it's pretty cool, though I've got to brush them off my tires every morning.

We have...

..A cyclist! Something clicked yesterday and he's riding away, and quite proud of it!

Oink

(Z was sitting on the toilet before his shower)

Z: Mama, did Kelly say she had a pig bladder?

Me: No, she has a pig valve in her heart.

Z: (thinking)

Z: Well, that explains why she snorts when she laughs!
