It's been a while

since I posted a cute kid photo. Here's little Imelda Marcos. And in case you're wondering what's on his mind these days you can read about it here.



  • What a fantastic little piece of writing you linked us to. I remember my son at that age. Thanks for the memories!

  • Too funny.

    My oldest step brother started calling me "Amelda" a combo of my name with "Imelda" when I used to pack a suitcase of just shoes to take to my dad's for the weekend. Hey you never know what kind of show you might need!

  • For a while my Isaac would only wear a pair of ruby slippers that he picked up at a daycare. What I love is that totally innocent and serious look they shoot you when you giggle. You got a problem with this outfit? Who are you, the fashion police?

  • That article is HILARIOUS. Bitchphd linked to it and it set off a huge debate about sexism. But my very girly girl got just as excited about firetrucks as a preschooler. Her childcare center was right down the street from a fire station, providing much entertainment every day.

  • Oh, the fire truck article is so true--my boys went through that phase about any sort of large vehicle, and my daughter gets pretty excited about them too. For some reason, school buses are a source of rapt attention. Maybe becasue they're large and powerful, and also bright yellow.

  • Look @ that expression!
    One of my daughters adores shoes. Luckily, she indulged her passion at the thrift store 2 Channukah's ago on 70% off day. Near new shoes were only 75 cents each! (Her ft had stopped growing she said & they had until see below.)

    Her dorm room has very little space. We knew she's be walking and wear those sneakers out. Sent her down with 2 pair. One bit the dust recently. Fedexed a 1/2 sizze larger "normal" pair of sneaks to her. I told her I grew in college b4 she left. I can't say "I told her so." LOL

  • So darn cute. I love the two-different-shoe look. My kids do this all the time. Sometimes I wish I could pull it off!

  • Heh heh, glad you all enjoyed. I also have photos of him wearing pink sparkly sandals, Barbie flip-flops, men's size 13 workboots....

    Elswhere, wow! A fire station right down the street from the daycare? That's reason enough to choose that particular daycare!

    Martha, Daniel loves school buses too!
