You can tell when I’m busy (huge project drawing close to end) when the photos are mostly webcam shots of Zane sleeping. He’s been feeling 100% lately, or perhaps 150% after stealing extra percentage points from his beleaguered parents. Getting to sleep at night lately is both fun and nearly impossible. Fun in that he’s really engaged with the books we read, but on the flip-side he doesn’t want it to ever stop nor for the parent to leave. We’ve been working on our resolve while he works on his wily parent luring tricks.
These days he refers to himself as Zane or Zaney. This morning we were putting together last minute valentine’s day cards for his pre-school and I was peeling stickers to put on the little red hearts. Apparently I was doing too much of it so he reached over and urged, “Zaney try?”
