Best Things One and Two

Best Thing One: I took the three younger Denizens to the park for a romp Saturday. This is the first time such a thing has happened since I went back to work (playing in the backyard, yes; being taken to the park, no), and I fell in love with my son all over again. While his sisters were busy putting all the sand in the sandbox down their pants (sigh), he took me by the hand and led me over to the swings, pointed at one, and then held up his arms.

This is shockingly good communication, from Captain Adventure. I picked him up and put him in the swing, pulled him back toward me, and gave him a good hard push.

He shrieked with a laughter so infectious that a woman coming out of her house across the street began to laugh, too. His eyes sparkled and snapped. He laughed and babbled and giggled and was so utterly in love with me…well. It was about the happiest I’d been in months.

And then about ten minutes later, somebody began screaming, VERY LOUDLY, that she !!NEEDED TO GO POTTY!!, and apparently that short little person felt I was in charge of this so I took her back to the Den so she could !!GO POTTY!!.

Afterward I wondered if I ought to call Channel 3 or something, so they could broadcast the happy news that she had, indeed, made it to the potty in time to a world that certainly awaited word. After all, she had SCREAMED IT LOUD ENOUGH that everyone from Fresno to Sacramento surely heard her plight and had pity for her…

Best Thing Two: I cast on the Celtic Lattice vest from Folk Vests. Eeeeee!

It’s a start!

Ooooooh, aaaaaaah. The Dancing (that’s the blue part) is gorgeous. It has a lot of depth and shine and I’m loving the occasional splashes of purple that like to jump in and surprise me. (Yes. I am that easily amused.)

And there you have it: Best Things One and Two from this weekend.

In other news, Captain Adventure said ‘juice’ today! And I am very excited because he is almost three and this is the first time he has said ‘juice’!!

{Pictures Red Stripe commercial} Yay, juice!!

I'd be excited by the purple bits too. It's a blessing to be easily amused. No expensive vacations for us! Just give us a ball of irregularily variegated yarn and we're set.

Hey-- I'm pretty sure FOX aired that story about the kid at the park who had to pee... (sounds like a great day--and the new WIP is awesome!)
