Nacho tombstone?! / PACHELBEL’S CANON, blankets, online school, onomatopoeia

March 31, 2020

Ayler called me at 3 to talk about Beckett going around with a blanket on his head (the same one that Hiero pulled off – and then Hiero was upset for five minutes), playing a six-page version of PACHELBEL’S CANON which took seven minutes to complete, knowing a couple of six-syllable words (“onomatopoeia” and “responsibility”), […]

The Butt Brothers?! / Birthday gifts, new rules, Hudson, talking a lot, schedule

March 28, 2020

Ayler called me at 9:40 AM to read me their schedule for the day: free play, mealtimes, piano, spelling, reading, and bedtime at 8 or so! He also says that his new rule should be that he can stay up 15 minutes later every year on his birthday. I said that sounds like a good […]

Mathias Jakshitz and Theressa Jakshitz?! / Oatmeal, pork, Auntie, puzzles!

March 24, 2020

Ayler and Hiero surprisingly called me at 10:20 AM, which is how I discovered that my phone was still on from last night, but that was a good thing in this case! This time, I was prepared with the light on AND my reading glasses very nearby! They wanted to call since we only talked […]

Ima Hogg tombstone?! / Nerfnow Comics: A treasure chest of toilet paper!

March 23, 2020

\Ayler called me briefly at 6, but I had to scramble to get my reading glasses in order to read the Caller ID, so I missed it. When I called them back immediately afterwards, the phone was busy! I checked my text messages instead, in hopes of getting ones from yesterday. There was one from […]

Banana bread, animals, and pompano! / Rannita Williams and Johnathan Robinson?!

March 19, 2020

Ayler called me at 6:15, wanting to know if I had gotten coronavirus yet. Not yet, and they haven’t either! They made banana bread yesterday, and had fish and chips for dinner today. Beckett ate only the sides of the fish, but Ayler says he himself can eat one pompano – hahaha, sounds good! He […]

Chili, blocks, broccoli, and mango pudding / SESAME STREET muppet generator

March 10, 2020

It’s MARIO DAY today! After COFFEE TIME, I went out at 3:10 on a 401 to help with the kids. Surprisingly, I just managed to get the 3 despite the elevator buttons not responding to my commands. I got to the house at 4:10 despite an electric scooter not knowing how to maneuver smoothly on […]

Pure Nail Bar / Biggerstaff?! / Coronavirus T-shirt / Lent / Today and tomorrow!

March 4, 2020

After COFFEE TIME / SHOWER TIME / CLEANING FRIDGE TIME (yucky sticky prune juice!), I went out at 1:30 on a 401 to finally redeem that Pure Nail Bar gift card from Christmas 2019 for a pedicure before going to help with the kids. I thought I’d be on time, but NO… the 3 bus […]

Cordia, bear hugs vs. bare hugs, a grammar sheriff, ever-vigilant Spelling Nazis

March 4, 2020

It’s NATIONAL GRAMMAR DAY today… MY FAVORITE! Aimee Vanderkarr tried adding one of my alteregos – DENIED! I had a dream where the London Drugs was being changed into a Shoppers Drug Mart, complete with fences blocking off our access. Beckett came up to me and said, “Beckett comes here every day to eat junk […]

Schwing tombstone?! PARTY ON! / Superfriends isn’t toxic! / DIDIBUG! / LICKING!

March 3, 2020

After COFFEE TIME, I went out at 2:40 on a 401 which JUST waited for me to help with the kids. Six minutes according to the new Translink website is not enough time to be comfortable – ten is way better! I got to the house at 4, managing to have a text conversation with […]

Mardi Gras 2020! / Andromada Deberry?! / Purple sticky rice! / Czech noodles!

February 25, 2020

Today is Mardi Gras 2020! I had some New England Clam Chowder today for National Clam Chowder Day. After COFFEE TIME, I went out at 2:45 on a 401 to help with the kids, but I just missed both buses – UGH! Got to the house, where the kids seemed to be better. Beckett walked […]
