09:33 am: we need some adjectives
Specifically, Teddy needs some. 'Cause he's all awesome, all the time these days, and I'd like him to branch out a bit.

...especially because the things he considers awesome I consider less so, like having a Monster Truck theme for his birthday party ("it's going to be AWESOME!") or watching a new episode of Handy Manny ("AWESOME!") or getting a new Happy Meal toy ("it was AWESOME!").

Y'see how this gets really tedious, really fast?

I'm delighted that he's enthusiastic. I've certainly become more enthusiastic myself about, say, Star Wars spaceships.

But the only time I've agreed with him was this morning. We found out that the garage door opener didn't work (the two that do work were in the car, which of course was inside the garage). Peter was downstairs, doing laundry, and I called for him in a panic, because Teddy was going to be late to school if we didn't leave very soon.

Peter stomped upstairs, went outside, raised the door manually (um, Kate? DUH!), and stomped away.

As I was fastening Teddy's carseat, Teddy said: "Daddy is AWESOME!"

This time, I had to agree.

I really want him to meet you (and vice versa), as I think you're A Good Influence. Aptitude for both art and silliness - which you have in abundance, you talented woman you - are great virtues in my mind. :)
