Time Change

For someone who regularly goes to bed at about 2am, getting up at 6am for conference calls with colleagues in Europe is not a sustainable schedule. I’m going to either need to start going to bed earlier or schedule calls at midnight when I’m up anyway, and it’s the beginning of their day.

In any case, it’s a highly eventful time at work, and I’m going to bed, so here’s just one little snippet from the boys.

There is a “letter of the week” at preschool, and the children are expected to draw or cut out a picture of a word starting with that letter. Last week, it was “X.”

Me: What word do you want to bring to school? What things start with X?

Five year old: X-ray! Or xylophone.
Almost two year old: X-box!

(stunned pause)
Five year old: Wow, that’s pretty good.

Of course, I could wish that the micro dude’s alphabet skills leaned towards something more erudite, but we’ll settle for techie in our bizarre little household.

This would totally happen at my house.

That *is* pretty good! Our latest x word is xolo--an African dog

First toothpaste science, now this!

FB, we have a book called Walk the Dog that lists a dog breed for every letter in the alphabet. The X there stands for xoloitzcuintli, a Mexican dog - wonder if they are related!
