The cold weather here in the northeast has put a kaposh on most of my exercise. I'm making a point of going to the gym tomorrow, but otherwise (with the exception of Thurs Swim lesson) its been pretty pathetic here. The pity-party continues: evolutionary eating patterns are kicking in too, I've been craving and eating hot, caloric things. You can only heat your insides with tea for so long before they kick at you and demand TOAST and CHEESE and BEEF.
But anyway, I wanted to celebrate two important events in my son's life which have nothing to do with weight loss and exercise, but are kind of momentous.
1) He started reading chapter books this week. The Mouse and the Motorcycle, The Chalkbox Kid and vol 1&2 of the Magic Tree House series. Encyclopedia Brown is in progress. In one week. Clearly, when it comes to books in this house, we dont mess around.
2) Friday, he lost his first tooth (intentionally; one was knocked out a year ago after a series of gravity accidents). Child has decided that he wants to save his money for "A Real Camera" not a hand-me-down or a kids camera. He wants a real one. And he had me write a letter to the Tooth Fairy to save up his money until he looses enough teeth.
Of course today he did wake me up by piling every single stuffed animal he owns on my head.....
