    We have this Star Wars abc book for Damian called ABC-3PO. It’s really cute, goes through the whole alphabet using Star Wars characters. Underneath each letter/character, there is a little poem about the character. Damian has just been bonkers over it the last week or so. Enough so that he has retained bits and pieces of the various poems. Squirrel and I walked into the nursery last last night to hear “A for Ackbar, poor Ackbar. B for Boba Fett, bounty hunter.” It was cute.

    Ours' favourite joke is currently:
    Knock knock
    Who's there?
    Europe
    Europe who?
    No, you're a poo!

    It's hilarious the first, I'd say, 3-5 times

    The one about the fucking space hairdresser and the cowboy. He's got a tinfoil pal and a pedal bin. His father's a robot and he's fucking fucked his sister. Lego. They're all made of fucking lego.

    Yeah, Niko loves his rainbow dress especially.

    I actually prefer the kids use makeup sometimes over... marker, which is what both kids used last night to decorate their bodies. Niko still has bright blue circles all over his legs!

    Man, fuck this winter.

    Jack has pink eye, a scratched cornea (has to wear an eye patch.... Mallory called him a pirate when she saw him lol), and has a bad cough

    Mallory has double ear infection, sore throat, pink eye, and croup

    My wife has a sore throat, cough, and fever

    And I, a week after getting over the flu, have a sore throat and a really nasty cough

    Somebody I know has just named their baby Xander. It feels very odd to not give the baby the full name and then use a shortened version. Going straight to short form rubs me the wrong way for some reason

    Mom is doing great, thanks for asking, and baby is off the air pressure system. Oxygen says are 95+ with no assistance.

    I remember with our son we celebrated each new thing he could do. And we would think "that's so cool, oh my goodness he's getting so big!" And then he'd incorporate it into his play with his toys and we got to watch him build on it and grow and it was so nice.

    With his sister one of says "hey guess what she did today?" and the other is like "shit don't even tell me I'll just go tape all the batteries to the ceiling and hopefully she won't figure out how to get them down right away."

    And it seems like all is dying, and would leave the world to mourn

    William (7) suggested we play I Spy in the coffee shop; he started with "two words, 'a' 's' " which turned out to be.... "a shop", which I declared to be cheating.

    Owen (almost 4), who clearly lives in some kind of dadaesque reality that overlaps ours in some way followed up with "two words, 'p' 'n' ", which after me and William had completely exhausted any possibility was declared to be "horse aeroplane".

    So I think I've discovered the secret to getting my 4-year-old to concentrate on an activity for a length of time.

    We just played LEGO together for 3 hours straight, using just basic blocks and me pulling up PDF build instructions from their website, showing him each step one at a time and letting him figure out what pieces needed to be added where. We got him that classic box as well as a Jurassic World set last Christmas, and while he worked with me putting the set together just fine over the holidays, he didn't show an interest in the generic LEGO experience of free building until very recently.

    His favourite build today was this friggin toaster, of all things. He mixed in some darker browns in the toast though "so it has peanut butter, daddy":

    I feel you. Our son has had the same bug for 2 weeks now. We thought he kicked it and was fine all week, then he randomly puked late last night and this morning. No fever, regular energy, just randomly has a sore stomach and needs to puke. And diarrhea.

    My wife caught some kind of slow-acting cold a week ago that the two little guys are just now getting. My middle guy's just noticeably snotty and drained, but it's managed to crank Tiny Wonder's usually high needs to painful levels. Just messed up the dismount trying to put him down, again, and it's nearly morning at this point- between myself and my now almost-not-quite recovered wife, the baby has woken up needy on eight separate occasions since bedtime last night

    Left the NICU today and got to bring baby Monica home.

    Quick feed for us and then her, then a bit of sleep. She’s been pretty good.

    They did mention she looks at tad yellow, but when they checked her levels they were perfect so it’s something for us to just watch. Seems like the baby jaundice is pretty common but everything is perfect otherwise

    Baby jaundice is definitely common! Yay for being home!

    Anya displays more adhd traits every day. Often it’s things like I’ll send her upstairs to retrieve a single item, and ten minutes later @Moriveth will have to retrieve her from the bathroom where she’s half-naked and singing.

    Last night I started her shower and called her to get in it. Five minutes later she’s not in the shower but is instead prancing around in a trash-bag dress. Mori brought scented trash bags for our cat litter and she loved the smell so much she decided she had to wear it.

    On the 1st I take my daughter to Amalie Arena to skate with Thunderbug. Then Saturday the 2nd we get to see them play Ottawa. And the best part for daddy? We get a meet and greet with the players. All for $75 Kids Club membership. She already got a ton of swag and a signed mini stick from Point.

    Events have transpired to decide that today is the day that my wife is trying to start nap training our 18 month old. We've had her sleep trained for 4 or 5 months now, basically right after she healed from her surgery, but she's already not a great napper. We tried this a couple of months ago, and she just sat in her crib and screamed for 45 minutes. Even with us going in to check on her, its just like its the end of the world all of a sudden. However, last time, we didn't really work to set a routine to make the move, like we did at bed time, so for the last couple of weeks my wife has been holding her for her naps in her room, after reading her a naptime book. So maybe it will go better?!?!? I'm guessing not based on early texts from my wife.

    I hope it's OK, but I can't do much.

    Also my uncle died last night and I haven't processed that yet either.
