Desi Candor

Is heaven in your belly?

Dad? Do you want to smell my feet?

I wanna turn on the light, please, for my conscience.

mmmm. . . that banana cheered me up!

My imaginary friends are gone now they went to go around the world to buy toys and treats and stuff.

It’s math-a-roni!

Jesus made me to like all kinds of colors -- Jesus make me that way.

I’m done! I don’t want this. I’m going to bed – maybe tomorrow you’ll make me a yummy dinner.

Des: Mom? Did you get mail today? A guy named Smithy-Howard was sending you a letter.
Me: Who’s Smithy-Howard?
Des: A boy who survived by bad guys.
Me: . . .

My penis is the tambourine and my bum is the drum.
Lets rock-n-roll! Slap! Slap! Slap! Slap!

Des went apple-picking with his preschool class and I commented that I was sure the apple orchards were beautiful. He quickly corrected me, “They weren’t beautiful, they were hideous!”

Des: I have good news for you Zo. I’m gonna buy you a princess when I turn 4 years old!
Zo: Wow!

Why is Zoe crying so much? It’s hurting my ears. I wish I had ear muffs. Can I get ear muffs when I’m 4 years old?

I want to hug you in your hug.

Des: When am I gonna have a baby boy?
Me: Are you pretending?
Des: No. When I grow up and get married I will have a baby. I want a baby boy – I will name him Thom after my friend Thomas. I love him when he’s all snotty!

“You’ll miss all the fun!”
Des declared as he headed to the bathroom to go potty.

I want to grow up to be like dad so he’ll know I like pina coladas, hot sauce and lumberjacks.

I like my bum. Do you like my bum?

It’s math-a-roni! My imaginary friend was talking in my ear and said, “Can I have you math-a-roni?”

Weekend in the Country

Sometimes it's nice when friends move out of the city but still stay within reach. Visiting our friends, the Blosils, is a citydwellers dream: to escape for a weekend and enjoy another side of New York.

They live in their builded house with their 3 daughters and new son. They are excellent cooks, fairly expert Tivo-ists (we're usually subjected to their saved favorites), and they enjoy sparing politics into the late hours.

We usually try to go to a Farmers Market when we visit this time of year.

Nate got into the spirit of things.

Des overcome with all the pumpkins -- it's a carvers canvas!

Nate single-handedly managing all the babes (I was weilding the camera, Magda was with sleeping babe-in-car, and Kent? Kent? Oh, yeah, on the phone talking sports with his bro)

Hello Zoe!

Apple Picking

Big excitement for Des and his preschool class -- they went applepicking! Took a bus to the country, boarded a hayride to the orchard, picked apples, had a picnic, and made it back to the city in time for his full preschool schedule. I dropped him off at the school early in the morning, which meant Zoe and I had till late afternoon before we had to be back. So the first thing on my mind was lets head downtown! We met Jessica and Noah for playtime in Union Square and a trip to Trader Joes!!! Fun times.

Des had some of his usual motion sickness on the way there but they were ready with a bag (!) He managed to eat apples non-stop while there in addition to his lunch. Once we met up he was still eating them and I swear he polished off another 5 before I convinced him he was going to get a stomach ache!

Kids! Kids! Kids!

Picking apples with buddy Devon

This week they've made apple boats and apple crisp in class.


Afternoon's with Zoe

Des is going to preschool daily which means Zoe and I have 2.5 hours together 5-days a week! Sometimes she falls asleep, or we run errands, get busy on domestics, read, or I take a nap myself. But most days we spend playing and exploring things together.

We are spending a lot of time walking. Here we are one afternoon walking to Preschool with our friend Porter.

Yes! Now mom is mine-all-mine!

I love my brother, but it's nice to have a break!

Having friends is fun!

Zoe loves to play with Loretta. After dropping Des off at school on another afternoon, the three of us went to the playground!
