travelling

Tiredness and lurgy are hindering the composition of a longer post (travel stories and more links coming up tomorrow) so I offer up only this:

My son took his first steps today. (I wasn't there to witness it in person, but I don't really mind. I'm sure I'll have lots of firsts of my own to brag about, like his First Swear Word).

Reportedly he lurched from the playpen door into the embrace of his childminder and looked completely freaked out by the entire experience - the way I would if I spontaneously levitated en route to the kitchen.

The Cats rate this event at Defcon 2- Mildly Alarming, requiring close monitoring and hiding under buggies

:D yay! It's awesome how fast they start to walk once they know how.

And... Let's pray for the wisdom to know what to do in a restaurant when he loudly asks for a "fork". (trust me.. you'll see).

I'm still praying for wisdom for what to do in restaurants when he starts screaming and going rigid with crossness. ;)

Re: Congrats!
Thank you :)

I'm feeling a lot more excited about all this than I probably should when we condsider the world of hazard that is likely to follow this development.

The cats seem to be spending a lot of time outside. I wonder why.

Aww, congratulations!

Beware. The first swear word will always be in public, in front of the very person you didn't want to hear it (think a priest, Grandma, your boss). Bonus points if the little darling announces, "Mommy said *&((*& last night!". And I know this, how?

Hehehehehe.

Our godfather taught my friend a serbian song whose refrain was
The wind is blowing
And my balls are swinging


and he used to utter this every single time he felt the slightest breeze on his face. Like say to the parish priest when he was visiting his grandmother for tea in the garden.
