We found out yesterday that one of my great-aunts, who recently moved out of a retirement community because she wanted to live by herself, fell and banged her head badly. While she apparently seemed okay at the time, a short while later she collapsed, and is vanishingly unlikely to recover. While it seems weird to say that someone who’s 97 is dying too soon, well, we always assumed she would outlive us all through sheer orneriness, so this is a nasty shock.
Thus, we’re badly in need of some cute around here. Happily, the kids’ day care was closed on Friday for Passover, and my mom came up here to help with them while Kate was at work. So, here are some cute SteelyKid and The Pip pictures:
The last is a fairly traditional Appa-for-scale shot, to be compared to this shot of SteelyKid at the same stage.
He’s got his legs drawn up a bit making him look smaller, but no less cute.
Anyway, there’s your hopefully mood-elevating dose of cuteness for the day. There will most likely be an interruption of blogging at some point in the very near future, but it’s not clear when.
