odds and ends

I’m getting a cold. I’d forgotten how much I hate colds. You can’t breathe, and your throat feels nasty. I’m thinking I might head home and try to take a nap.

On a totally unrelated note, there was a fun little episode with Laura last night that’s worth relating. We were heading out to run a couple short errands last night, and she really didn’t want to get in her carseat. But she finally did, and we ran to the video store and then to pick up cheesesticks from Papa John’s. In both cases, Laura and I just sat in the car while Becky ran in.

While we were waiting at Papa John’s, I could tell she was really getting bored just sitting there, not getting to do anything. So, I grabbed a little toy rabbit and proceeded to play peekaboo between Laura and the rabbit, a game that she’s enjoyed on previous occasions. After bemusedly considering the rabbit, she looked at me with a tired look that seemed to say “thanks for trying dad, it’s not really that interesting, but I appreciate the effort.” Hard to explain, but one of those mundane yet priceless moments that make parenting such a joy.

    ….I just came on here and realized how un-often I actualy go around to other peoples blogs…. So when I finally do get around to a blog, I have to leave a comment. šŸ™‚ Sounds like things have been going excellent, except for the part about getting a cold.. It seems like I’ve had a cold off and on (mostly on!) for the last year. Mom blames it on not getting enough sleep, (and perhaps partly because I wear flip-flops all winter) and doing too much stuff. But I figure, if you don’t do it when you’re young you’re not going to ever do it. Sooo… I just put up with it.. Anyway.. on to another note.. You and Becky have got a precious daughter šŸ™‚
    Luv u šŸ˜€ thanks for my Happy Birthday post on here, I don’t think I’ve done anything too crazy… yet… šŸ™‚
