There are loads of them; M always in the kitchen, staring at the Bug. These expressions, I think, are of my husband/Bug's father trying to anticipate what will come next. While I can't predict the next hour, often I try to predict smaller increments of time. Say, five minutes, one minute...jeez, even 30 seconds heads' up is helpful. However, despite the hands-on dad that M is, he is not the primary caregiver that I am. Unlike myself, M hasn't had the time and experience to fully realize that this attempt at fortune telling as it pertains to our son's wants, needs, and actions, is absolutely futile. Really. It hurts to even try. I offer these photos as evidence.

Sometimes I think I give my children too much attention. Case in point:
Our dear friend Tracy came for a visit. And, my kids don't seem to really know what to do when I'm busy enjoying the company of friends. For instance, Bug decided to celebrate Chinese New Year after his bath by placing alphabet stickers all around his naked midriff post-bath. Uhm. Well. Hm. Happy Belated Chinese New Year, I think...

So, M was away longer than expected in Germany. On Friday I told Bug, "We're having a cuddle day tomorrow. We don't have to go to school because it's Saturday and you don't have to go to football practice. Papa won't be home because of the snow at the airport." Bug is really into cuddling lately and just hanging and this spring is our last real spring to call our own shots. So, I'm making the most of these opportunities as I can. Bug was excited! Thrilled! "Oh, yeah! We can cuddle and I can eat all day!" Because, I also have refrained from feeding my children until absolutely necessary....
