You all know I'm not usually one to use this blog as a place to gush about my family, but today's triple header of special occurrences simply could not go unremarked:
The Boy, by his own choice, decides to wear a bow tie for the first time today. For this historic event, I offered a vintage Indian madras number from Trimingham's of Bermuda. A great look for a four year old boy with a blue oxford, embroidered khaki shorts and crocs...definitely not for grown ups, but I'd say he's headed down the right path.
The Girl discovers her love of the Ramones, particularly Blitzkrieg Bop, which was played at top volume half a dozen times before bath and bed tonight. Stripping naked and dancing frantically to the Ramones is great for a two year old girl...probably not for grown ups, but I'd say she's on the right path.
Mrs. G. decides to take up chess. She's brand new to it, but I haven't played in so long we're nearly equals. Sure, I beat her twice, but she did put up an impresive fight...but bragging is not for grownups, forgive me.
All in all, not a bad day.
