tomato

It's Good...

... to borrow other people's kids for a while, because then, when we give them back, it's just Jet and I life feels so calm...

I gave away a dozen tomato plants this morning and I am relieved. Plants are a little like puppies for me... I really feel responsible for their growth and well-being oddly enough.

Jet and I spent four hours on the floor yesterday, playing Mechaton -- Giant Fighty Robots with Lego and more dice than we could count. It amuses me that even with a double handful of eighteen dice I got two hits and when Jet had just four dice he STILL got two hits on me. Kid karma. But now I know that he is entirely capable and willing use what some people might call complex mechanics to play a game. Thank you, amberley!!! We had a blast...
