08:51 am: the things that kid says...
Peter took Teddy to the library yesterday to sign up for a Lego building class. Peter hates talking to people (this is the man who wanted me to tell people I was a widow so he wouldn't have to meet anyone), so he told Teddy to enroll himself. He fully expected to take over, but Teddy went right over and told the librarian he wanted to come to the Lego building class, spelled his name for her, and gave her our phone number.

Peter had to look up our phone number on his cell to make sure it was right, but Teddy knew it.

We've never taught him our phone number. Wuttayaknow!

I went upstairs to the kindergarten with Teddy this morning to help him change out of his boots, to carry a bunch of stuff (coffee can for art project, mittens & hat that a kid left at Teddy's party, snow pants for recess, lunch, etc.), and to let his teachers know that I'll be out of town, which may mean he'll need a little extra attention.

One of his friends came in as Teddy was changing shoes. Teddy got right up into his face (when do kids develop a sense of appropriate personal space, anyway? I don't remember that little tidbit from all those books) to tell him "My Mommy's going to Boston all week and Daddy and I can do whatever we want and I have to clean up all my papers in Mommy's office or she's going to throw them all out when she gets back!"

I guess that's a 5-year-old's way of saying "Happy New Year!"

He did consent to an actual hug when I left, instead of the head butt that is more typical of school-based affection these days.

I'm hoping to take some sitting-in-the-hotel time to reflect on 2009.

I just wanted to comment on the fact that your town library has a LEGO BUILDING CLASS and that is SO RAD. That is all.

It is. We like our town, and its library.

Teddy's sign-up

Lego building class? I'm impressed, too! But the thing that made me laugh is remembering when we lost a key (or something) for admission to Crystal Lake and the attendant said it would cost us $10 (or something high) unless, smirk, smirk, you remembered the number. You were about four, and immediately rattled it off. So it's a good gene and you've passed it on. Must have got it from your father -- I can't remember a darned thing.

it's just numbers

I can't remember anything else.

oh, ok, mystery plots. But that's it.
