Are you having fun with your photos AC? It’s all well and good y’know, but I seem to recall, vaguely mind you, something about two kids. What’s going on with them anyway?
Well, it hasn’t really been that long. I’ve told you all about Nikki Dee starting school and all. But since you asked — even if only in my overactive imagination — here are a few tidbits.
Zachy Boy is talking a blue streak. Basically, he only stops yaking to go to sleep. Sometimes, he has to be advised to play in his room for awhile just for us to get a few moments of silence. But he’s a good little fella and very darn cute with all of his chattering.
He seems to have a great attention span and takes life calmly for the most part. The other day, I was supervising while he rode around on his bike (see photo below taken the next day beside his sister’s bike) for almost an hour. He’d meander here and there in the little dead end section pausing to gaze at pebbles, flies or what have you. For awhile he de-biked to sit on the driveway with me while he pulled out grass. The point is that it was a pretty calm and tranquil time, the only fly in the ointment being that I was cooking in the hot sun because the morning had been cold and The Bups was still wearing those heavy clothes even though it was now pretty warm out.
The next day, sister also wanted to go bike riding after school, so we all headed out. What a difference! She must have had to change bikes and/or activities three or four times within fifteen minutes. Under her influence, he just had to follow suit. Bikes and toys were flying in and out of the garage at a furious pace. It was crazy and hard on the old Buppa, I tell you.
The next evening, was Open House at ND’s school. It was pure and unadulterated bedlam, I assure you. However, that meant that Nikki Dee was in her element, giddy with excitement at the hordes and commotion. It’s not a great photo, in fact it’s a lousy one, but I think it conveys something whereof I speak.
They’re opposites for sure but both lovable for what and who they are.
