Dear Spotty Chop you were 91 months old 9 days ago

You are doing a great job at the dentist! Your dad had to take you and the cleaning went without a hitch. This baby is why you need to brush your teeth. So your dentist appointments are pain and scare free.

We went to Nannie and Papas so BoyToy could help Papa move furniture and stuff, then we went uptown. The town did its first Luminary Night and we walked through a labyrinth and got popcorn. We should have brought warmer jackets. You were having a blast walking around and looking at all the lights. We had dinner over Favorite Uncles and Froggy’s. You were playing on Froggy’s IPAD and you were playing a game they had been playing for months. They were kind of blown away about the stuff you were able to teach them, even after only playing for 20-30 mins.

I went to NYC for the first time in years. I did an overnight, I should have gone for 2 nights as there was a lot to do, but we do what we can. You and your dad had a great Dude’s night. Neither of you will tell me what you did, but I know it involved take out and late night gaming. Your teacher wrote to tell me that you missed me. I missed you too kiddo.

You got your wish to go to a hotel. We went down the cape so I could go scrapbooking. You and your dad swam and bowled and explored. You found a shell that looked like the foot of a turtle statue that had been broken off. We remembered that the food for dinner kind of sucked so we went to the British Beer Co instead…we missed the ice cream so next year an earlier dinner! Also breakfast was beautiful right on the water, but expensive as hell for what we got, not sure what we will do next year…Someone misplaced the PSP so there was drama at the end of the scrapbooking…We will have a drama free trip someday. We were planning on leaving early anyways so you could get to a classmates birthday party. You had a great time more bowling, video games and laser tag! I have no idea what we are going to do for your party…

Thanksgiving was nice. It was the first time you actually ate what was prepared, but you thought the turkey was tasteless as well as the potatoes…You had a great time with your cousins…I think one or two of them kind of treated you like shit…I could have been reading into things, you weren't upset.

We went to cut down our Christmas tree. You had the best time ever. You were nervous because you remember getting a cut from last year. But for some reason you took to the saw like it was made for you and were cutting everything in sight.

A friend of mine was stranded one morning at the train station due to train problems and I explained that after I dropped you off I was going to pick her up. As we were getting ready you were very concerned that she had nothing to eat and drink along with being outside in the cold,  so we called her back to see if we could make her anything. She was very touched. As was I.

You are a such a great kid. We still play angry bull and trot trot. You love to sit on my lap when we watch TV and you have started playing with my hair again when you need comfort. You haven’t been playing on the gaming consoles much, but you can’t get off the computer.

Love ya baby
