The Words From Their Lips

One of the purposes of this blog is to write down things I know I'll forget in a few years. Poor Magali is sick. She has a fever and a head cold. The first two pictures are her sleeping in various states of sitting.

Anyway, I got home this afternoon and she said, because she's stopped up, "Papa, when I move my mouth or swallow, my ears fart."

Dash, on the other hand, is in perfect health. He said that when he scrunches his fingers back and folds his thumb under he can make himself have paws like a lion. And here is what a lion looks like clapping (second picture).

How Are You REALLY Feeling

Dash got a cool new fountain pen from his first cousin once removed, Geraldine. He's been drawing stuff all night. He said, "Look, Papa, this is how I feel." And he held up a frowny face. He was kidding around but he actually had a challenging day today and spent much of it frowning.

Magali said, "And this is how I feel." And she had drawn a smiley face. Which, again, isn't too far from the truth.

At least our kids don't have difficulty conveying their emotions.

Magali Had a Shot

The day before yesterday Magali had to go the doctor's for a check up. She got two shots which she wasn't happy about. Then in the lobby, on the way out, she passed out and just fell to the floor.
I was at the studio and Sara called me to tell me what happened. Man, that was that scary to hear. She started the conversation with, "Everything is fine and Magali is great." But it was still awful to hear. I can't imagine how horrible it was for Sara to see her unconscious on the floor. The doctors said it was a normal reaction and that it happens to many kids who are upset about getting a shot. It's called Vasovagal syncope. We learned a lot about it that day.

Our Studio Opening

Today we had our open house at the studio. It was amazing how many people came. The kids were great... It couldn't have gone better. We should serve food and wine EVERY Saturday... Clients seem to dig it.
