They are married

After Christopher finished breakfast, and while Matteo was still finishing up with his breakfast, Christopher pulled out his two dogs. Lately has taken quite an interest in “walking” his dogs. This morning he said, “Look, Daddy.” “These are my two married doggies.” When I asked their names, he responded, “Perry and Chalkie”. “They are honeys.” …

A visit to the pumpkin patch

We were invited by another couple, who has 3-year-old boy-girl twins, to join them in an adventure at the Clayton pumpkin patch. What an adventure…The drive was twice that of what we normally drive to go to Moore’s Pumpkin Patch in Castro Valley. No problem, though, ’cause we got some great pics.

The potty diaries – October 13, 2010

I am not sure if we are jinxing ourselves by starting the diary this soon, but today Matteo said, “pee-pee”, which honestly I wasn’t sure if that meant he had to go to the potty. We haven’t really been taking him regularly; on occasion, we sit him down on the toilet, usually at bath time. …

What a big mouth you have

A few days ago, the boys and I made pasta with broccoli and chicken in a red sauce – actually, I made the dinner, they watched. While we were eating, I was twirling the spaghetti around the tines of my fork, and Christopher commented on the rather large size of the bite. Before I could …

Are we there yet?

Yesterday, Christopher and I took David to Great America for his 10th birthday. We had such a great time. The funniest part was hearing Christopher say, “Are we there yet?” at least 10 times before we got on the freeway! [st]

So much to report…

I have taken an unexplained break from blogging. Once we completed our kitchen and family room renovation, and moved back in to the rooms, we had to prepare for Mike’s parents’ visit. One thing led to another, blah, blah, blah. So here goes… We finished our kitchen and family room renovation! The renovation took 11 …

I’m not lying

During Mike’s parents’ visit, we had a tough time getting Christopher to bed. To be expected, he was very excited to see his Nana and Pop-pop. In fact, the day they departed for home, Christopher got very upset. I digress, however. When Mike’s parents arrived, we gave them our room, which is on the main …

Happy Father’s Day!

Mike and I enjoyed our Father’s Day with the boys. We started by going to our favorite breakfast restaurant in Oakland, followed by a walk along the Jack London Square’s farmer’s market. We picked up a few vegetables and fruits, some of which we planned to take to our friends Kai and Michael’s house for …
