Two Little Hours

| 15 Comments | No TrackBacks

Mark left for a business trip today. Shouldn't be much of a big deal, I mean, how should this morning differ from any other in which he leaves for work?

Well, by the time Mark arrived in far away Dayton (1 hour 10 min drive?) Yeah.

Liam had managed to discover that he could get a (soggy) cheerio up his (very snotty) nose. Lovely. And he found it amusing.

Then the tornado sirens went off. Yes, it is Wednesday. But not noon. Try 10 a. m.

Turns out, they were testing them at a random time. WHAT?! What is that about? Isn't the point of having standard testing times that if they go off at another time, IT AIN'T A TEST? Just asking.

However, I did find out, and I think this is fairly important to know: sirens are merely warnings for people outside to go indoors. Those of us already inside in bad weather are expected to listen to the radio.

And a Liam story I forgot yesterday:

If Liam hears a noise he doesn't recognize, he blames it on Mark thusly: "Daddy tooted." Even if it is Liam himself tooting.

And he auto corrects. That's actually the story I wanted to tell. I've heard him in the other room, "Liam down! Liam down!" to find him sitting on the coffee table. At dinner, he'll have his feet touching the table and say, "feet down! Feet down!"

Just now he was standing in his high chair and said, "sit down!"

In case I forget, who auto-corrects? Liam or Mommy? Liam auto-emulates doesn't he? Well he is a smart feller, and will probably be JUST LIKE HIS PARENTS oh my! At least where it comes to dark chocolate I'm sure....

A self-correcting child! How delightful!

I cannot wait to spend some quality time with my nephew! That is such a good sign, Mara, so refreshing; young Liam is self-aware and has a relationship with himself. I know forty year olds who have never managed the neat conceptual trick of modelling themselves in order to modify their own behaviour.

And not just a few - most adults lack the cognitive fluidity necessary to self-relate.

This is a wonderful development. I'm glowing with totally undeserved avuncular pride!

A good blog , it has long sought a paper document com this web 20.0

Hi, I enjoy you blog. I'm glad Bing pointed me to it. I was able to get the know-how I was looking so badly for hours now.Thank You very much for your great blog post. Keep posting.

I enjoy the time that you have lay for, in this article. Awesome, also I wish to quote a few lines from this website in my website, I will give a backlink to this blog post. Again.. it is really a good work. Thanks

I really like keeping as much as date on everything new so i??? ll definitely be bookmarking th is website.

Good point. I agree with you.

Hands down, Apple's app store wins by a mile. It's a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I'm not sure I'd want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

I wish more people would write blogs like this that are actually interesting to read. With all the garbage floating around on the net, it is rare to read a blog like yours instead.

Hey, found your site by accident doing a search on Google but I'll definitely be coming back. - Anyone who has lost track of time when using a computer knows the propensity to dream, the urge to make dreams come true and the tendency to miss lunch. Attributed to Tim Berners-Lee

Really informative post.Much thanks again. Much obliged.

This was really fascinating, with all of the credit to you the poster. Would adore to hear more about this from you. In the event you would not mind would you email me, I believe you might have my e mail with this comment and we can speak that would be brilliant. Thank you so very much look forward to hearing from you.
