Yesterday I learned to do a circular cast on – The Emily Ocker Cast on to be more specific. It involved a crochet hook. I figured it out by watching a couple of videos and then referring to the photos from the link above. Apparently I needed several types of demonstrations in order to learn this. It was tricky at first, and then when I got it – I got it! I love that feeling, and after that, it was easy as pie. I am starting a circular shawl. Girasole by Jared Flood to be specific. So far so fun!
Let’s see what else. Davey continues to remind us at least once daily that “Davey is a little boy name, and when he gets big he wants to be called ‘Thor'”. I suggested David. Nope.
Today we were walking on a sidewalk toward a building, and Davey said, “I smell elephants”. Apparently, someone had just put some fertilizer down.
I don’t know why he continues to ask me superhero questions. I either get it wrong, or I get it wrong. And the rest of the time, I just don’t know. And even when I do know, I still get it wrong. “Mommy. Can Captain America fly?” I say yes. “No Mommy!”
“Is Boomerang a good guy?” 50 -50 shot here for me. “Yes”, I say. “No Mommy!” (And I am not sure as I write this which he is. I am no good on 50 50 odds, and I tend to forget quickly.)
It doesn’t matter if Davey already knows the answer. He still wants to ask the question. So I try to answer incorrectly to play with him. I still manage to mess that up half the time.
It’s all very confusing.
I am working on the superheroes and supervillains working together. I encourage them to hug and stuff. I also encouraged Davey to learn all their super abilities and such so that later when he gets older, then they can do battle. That works a little. The bad guys are not bad. They are just silly! At least, I keep trying to tell him that. He still wants to make them battle, although I think they all went camping today. Apparently, Dr Doom was nice when he went camping.
So that’s our lives of superheroes and more superheroes.
David got a Roger Federer hat today. A friend brought it back from Switzerland. It may be one of David’s favorite things he has ever received in his entire life. He was very excited. I need to take a picture of it perched on his head.
The other night I made this: Cindy’s Jambalaya. I have made it several times. I highly recommend it. I used turkey smoked sausage, and I thought it worked great.
Tonight we are making homemade pizza. Davey is getting ready to help me. Better get to it!
