Aidan (while eating breakfast, suffering serious jet lag and having been up since 2:30 AM, and therefore having watched a lot of TV this morning): Watch more baby crack?

Me: …

What have they been teaching the boy while we’ve been apart?!?


OK, I know, it’s been 3 weeks since anything’s been posted.  Between the vacation and the forced Mythtv upgrade (serious time zapper) things have been busy.  I intend to recap the vacation sometime in the next few days.


Yes, I know that you can’t reach the Funnyfarm right now.  I don’t know why.  I’ll try to troubleshoot that in the next few days too.

TV_thomas_the_tank_engine_screenshot.jpgWell, it has happened, we now have new baby crack, or should I say Toddler crack. AS you guys know Aidan loves trains and plays with his train table all the time. We also found that the youtube videos of people’s model trains could keep him transfixed. I had been trying not to get Aidan too interested in the Thomas the Tank Engine stuff because the trains are so expensive. However, when you are trying to get something done and he just wants Trains!!! you do what you have to. He has only been watching the Thomas and Friends for a few days, but this morning he brought me the remotes said “Thomas” and went to sit in his chair facing the tv. Guess what he wanted. :)

As some of you may know there is not a lot of yard space in Vancouver. In fact most people do not have any yard and just have a balcony. This means that there are not a lot of pools in which to dunk your toddler in the blazing heat. Well, I guess that I spent the best five dollars of my life. (Except maybe the cat basket I bought for a buck, but that is another story.) I bought a blow up wading pool.

Now usually a blow up anything will take forever to inflate and leave you breathless. This one took only five minutes and that was while taking care of a 16 month old and a 12 month old. The boys have enjoyed the wading pool in my living room for a few days (dry of course) and I wasn’t sure if it was going to be very good with water. Until today.

I put the wading pool on our tiny balcony, put less than an inch of water in it and Aidan crawled into it right away. I think that he has spent an hour and a half out of the last two in it. It is small enough that he can crawl over the sides and with the small amount of water he was very happy to splash and play without any worry. He was also cool.

Now, how do I get the water out?
