today Michael asked how many days until his birthday? i explained to him it is very soon, september 3rd. he then through a fit. a crying screaming fit because he doesn’t want his birthday to be in September. that’s too long, he wants it to be this week. that tantrum turned into a crying screaming fit because his new costume is coming in 6 days, 6 whole days.
in other news mark left yesterday for his trip to Asia. He will be gone for 6 weeks. He travels often for long periods of time. For his last night him, Michael and i went to the New Canaan Diner had milkshakes and then went next door for gelato came home and had cookies. so if you were concerned, no i am not starving over here.
