american boy

I spent pretty much all day with Toby today – Emma has a big assignment for college, and she made really good progress on it. Toby and I had a good time, with lots of playing and generally hanging out. I took him outside for his first experience of shoveling snow, and he totally loved it. He sounded like a one-person soundtrack to a karate movie as he maneuvered the shovel (which is twice as high as he is) – “Hyaaah! Hyoooh! Hyeeeeh!”

He had an all-American lunch – a hot dog followed by some bread and peanut butter. When I put the peanut butter in front of him he looked at me and slowly and deliberately said “Dad. Peanut butter is. Very. Very. . . Awesome”.
