it's unsanitary, but it gives him joy

In Montenegro it was too hot to consume anything but fruits and salads, and my son felt that the only reasonable response to being a 20 month old person was to run around and try to climb on places that have snakes. As a result of this no-food-all-action-all-the-time I shed close to 8 pounds in 10 days. I haven't shifted weight that fast since I gave birth, but since in London I have neither problem I am having pizza for breakfast while I sit in front of the computer and consider into which part of my day I should slot a lengthy nap. Left to our own devices the cats and I synchronise our hobbies.

Spending time with my son was beautiful (he talks! he doesn't shut up! I still haven't decided whether I'm more charmed by his conversations with inanimate objects or his statement-of-the-obvious sentences) and leaving him for another month was heartbreaking.

While my desires to write endless posts and read endless posts slug it out with each other, I leave you with an image of Postmodern Childhood: Collecting cigarette butts on the beach*




* A person cannot dissuade him from this course of action. I've tried. But I'm thinking he has a bright future in garbage collection.

Oh my.

Train OCD Baby to pick up things in your house, and you will be able to take those long naps.

(very cute)

Considering that a few days ago I was greeted by a sight of Baby running into the bedroom 5 minutes after waking up waving a carving knife he unearthed God knows where and shouting joyously "Matei Knife!", I may never sleep again.

I am however thinking of renting him out to the City Of London for the purposes of a 'Clean Camden' campaign.

He has a great future in data analysis or the sciences!

Where were my genes when this child was being made, that's what I want to know.

It was so lovely seeing you. xx
