I slept for TWELVE hours over night (I passed out watching Meet the Robinsons (the ulimate animated movie for adoptive parents (second only to Annie for all time movies about adoption (smile)) at about 8:00 and the next thing I knew it was 4:10 AM and Ava was waking me up to ask me to come sleep on the couch in our bedroom with her where we slept until 8:12) and then Joy made us breakfast in bed (Huevos Rancheros) and then we went out to see Imagine That (which was actually really, really good (imagine THAT from an Eddie Murphy movie (smile))) and then we came home to start laundry, lawn mowing, grocery shopping, house cleaning and errand running.
Yep. Even Father's Day has to be met with the reality of an OCD-suffering father and his need for Sunday normalcy!
Anywho - Ava did so well at lunch we let her strip down to next-to-nothing and enjoy a little ice cream cone before nap time and, before long, the Flip was out and we were playing the "Can You Repeat This Phrase Bank In An Endearing Tone" (our favorite Flip camera game). 20 minutes of attempts later (Ava is going through a, uh, phase right now that makes the game less than, uh, fun for her) we had THIS to share with her Grandfathers.
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to all the dads out there especially my father, Dad Terry, Uncle Patrick and Uncle DJ!
