kosher – you’re doing it wrong

Friday, April 23rd, 2010

Toby and Emma were at the grocery store tonight choosing bread to go with dinner.

T: let’s get that bread – the one we have when Opa and Val come to stay
E: um OK. So what goes with challah?
T: I dunno … Ham?

modern life

It’s so challenging. Here are some clips of As Seen On TV ads, showing just how tough it is to live in the modern world. Kind of amusing, but kind of depressing too, when you think of all the real challenges going on (have I lost my sense of humor?):

I’m at Toby’s tae kwon do class watching him do his thing. He’s getting fairly senior in his age group as he got his blue belt last weekend (the progression is white, yellow, gold, orange, green, blue, purple, brown, red, red/black stripe, black). You can really see how he is progressing in his strength and physical ability, and also in his discipline and focus. He loves it.

When I collected him from school he was out in the playground enjoying the beautiful weather. He and his friends were working very hard on building a small raft to help a worm get across a puddle. They were having a great time but also very serious and intense. How great to be seven!
