Big Story: 1. This morning, while RLF was playing soccer — I moved the chairs away from the dining room table so it could be the goal — BWF found my coffee mug. He tried to drink it. I’ll give him credit; he tried to be careful. But the taste made him cough and a[…]

Big Story: RnB each climbed up a slide for the first time, at least that I’ve seen. (My wife said BWF climbed up a small slide while they were visiting Long Island in July.) Today, when we took a walk this evening on our community’s walking paths — which include a path to the playground[…]

The kids were a little aggravating this morning. Perhaps the biggest incident was when RLF used the bathroom but (1) forgot to flush and (2) forgot to close the door when she was done. So guess who went in there on his own, the second he was out of my sight? Yes. So there was[…]

We broke our string of 100-degree days, only reaching 96°F today. Late morning: Despite the “coolness”, we swam at our community pool for the first time in a while. Both kids really enjoyed it. We had the pool to ourselves for at least 30 minutes, then a grandma came with three girls, one about RLF’s[…]

Dentist appointment today, to get three fillings on the lower left. I arrived at 11:55 for my 12:00 appointment and signed in. I was called back at 12:05. So far so good. Then I sat in a chair for 30 minutes. I eventually turned my phone back on (to check the time). Then a man[…]

More 100-degree weather. Today, we crossed the arbitrary mark at 12:30 and stayed there until 18:00. The high was 102°F. BWF was better today. But now he’s started this thing where he’ll bring you a book to read, but wants to get up after the first couple of pages (previously, he’d sit through the entire[…]

2014.08.21-22: Images From The Trip

During our two-day trip to Oklahoma for my Dad’s 70th birthday (and Ella’s 8th), I made about 200 photographs, and kept about 130 of them — a higher keeper ratio than I’m accustomed to. Here are 18 that I felt like sharing here. RLF with her grandfather (Copyright © 2014 by Wil C. Fry. Some[…]

RLF was good today, except for a major breakdown right before/during supper (crying, screaming, refusing to eat). BWF was fussy today, on and off. My wife thinks he might be working on his fifth tooth. I hope so; he’s a little behind on the tooth chart. BWF points at the ceiling any time the air[…]

RnB were very good today (R: 95%, B: 85%), until MF got home from work. Then RLF dropped to maybe 40%, though BWF kept up playing on his own and being generally in a good mood. (Both had taken naps today, though R’s was shorter than usual.) Another 100-degree day, our 19th — still the[…]

2014.08.22: Notes

The kids were happy to be home; we could tell. They rediscovered their toys — and the TV. Neither watched an ounce of TV during our trip and it was obvious they’d missed it. Both ate well. RLF took a two-hour nap. BWF skipped his nap today — I think it’s his first no-nap day.[…]

2014.08.20-22: Dad’s 70th Birthday Trip

In 47 hours, we drove nearly 800 miles, attended two birthday parties, went swimming, toured two houses, reconnected with nearly 30 people, met one new person, made over 200 photos, and slept a little bit too. Here’s the story, as brief as I know how. (Images will follow in a later entry, I assume.)
