HaHa! It's Not All My Fault

SwingDaddy's mother reports that he was a biter as a child too.

Q, baby - Just because your mommy and daddy used to bite doesn't mean that you have to do it too. Rebel! Be different! Make your own fate!

On the plus side, maybe he'll also have Trivial Pursuit skillz.

It's been a year of love. We've had eight of our dancers get engaged since Labor Day. Two of them were to each other, so there were an amazing seven separate engagements. The swing pair had their wedding this afternoon, and it was beautiful. (For you non-couple-dance folks, it's swing dance pair, not swingers. That's something different.)

We made our way to the elegantly labeled table, and found a charming and thoughtful place setting for Q. He had a high chair all ready for him, with a little board book and a cute plush cow for entertainment! We quickly moved the fine china out of reach and settled in to greet our neighbors.

We even got to enjoy dancing a few numbers as a trio, thanks to SwingDaddy's stellar abilities to hold Q on his hip and still lead a hot Lindy Hop. The photographer (who shot our wedding too, many years ago) told us that he captured a few snaps of our family dance, and I can't wait to see them.

Before we knew it, it was Q's bedtime, and we went home, happy and tired. This is going to be a busy week, wrapping up a lot of projects at work, and preparing to teach at the summer dance week.
