I have been unable to leave the house with Small DB for days. Sick for an entire week. The day they have to be looked after by M – she’s finally back on track. HOW IS THAT FAIR? Since I fixed his phone, he can send me photos, and this is what I saw…

That the child who stayed nude and housebound yesterday, impervious to my begging, got herself dressed this morning, made herself a snack and even BRUSHED HER HAIR (hello Anne Marie). And look! She’s wearing the trousers I made her – they appear to fit…

Dadda Day: Got herself dressed and ready to rock.

Small Z had decided it was Z-Mow’s birthday. Who is Z-Mow? Do you remember when he was freshly made?

Dadda Day: It was Z-Mow's birthday, apparently.

And of course there was a cake and a candle for Z-Mow at the Local cafe…

Dadda Day: Happy Birthday Z-Mow!

Then M sent me this photo…Small DB napping…the little slender sapling that she is. She has lost some weight this week…

Dadda Day: Flat out napping.

They finished off the day by a trip to the beach after dinner.

Dadda Day: Finishing Tuesday at the Beach. Together.
Dadda Day: Jumping off the breakwater. Somers.
Dadda Day: Jumping off the breakwater, curls flying...
[…all photoes by M – thanks for giving them an awesome day!]
