Telephone

Here's some of what's happening:

  • Yesterday, D got a thump on the head from tipping over a yard waste container and got a goose egg on his forehead (he'd been helping me weed the borders).  He went to ER yesterday and had a CAT scan, but they said he looked fine.  We paid D $2 for weeding the borders and $1 workman's comp.  
  • Before that, we all visited a local commune/intentional living community/cult with a total of two moms, one 5-year-old, an almost 2-year-old and an almost 1-year-old.  We had a fabulous picnic lunch (quesadillas, sausage and falafel) and then went to see the sights.  We visited a water mill, an herb garden, a fiber arts gift shop, a garden, some goats, some chickens (C LOVED the chickens), a smokehouse (didn't get to go in but it smelled AMAZING), a woodworking shop, a pottery shop, and a big general gift shop (don't touch anything you're not buying, kids!).  Then we had dessert--ice cream, carrot cake (very good!) and coconut cream pie.  I am hoping to make a return visit in the fall for their big craft fair.  
  • After months of ignoring it, Baby T has finally gotten interested in the toy telephone.  I was concerned for a while that it was an obsolete toy, as it resembles no telephone that Baby T has ever seen in use.  But Baby T is finally interested in it.  In fact, today she set it on my lap.  It took me a while to figure out what she wanted (to have the on-switched flipped for her), but I eventually figured it out.
