Bridge that fall down Maia

Sometimes when Maia and I are doing “paintbrush” together, she asks me to paint “bridge that fall down Maia.”

I recite the story of her accident.  When I get to the part where we are rushing to the hospital “and mama and dada were so scared,” I ask her, “Were you scared?” and she says, “No!”

I painted the top version first and Maia didn’t like it because I put her hands on the top bar.  She had me paint it again with her hands on the bottom bar, which is how they were when she lost her balance, flipped, and gashed her head open.  😐


Gymnastics class is not in session for the summer, so I looked for a new activity to do with the bean.  We tried ballet class a couple of weeks ago, and it was kind of eh.  Today we did soccer, and Tom and I thought it went as well as we could expect.  Two-year-olds playing soccer is pretty much the cutest.

Happy 4th of July!

We had a nice low-key 4th of July yesterday.  We spent the morning at the zoo (which was not the complete madhouse I expected).

Maia was pretty tired after the outing, or so we thought…

After nap, we had some playground time with our new hit toy and then finished off the day by watching the end of Moana with dinner.  A pretty good day!

Yet another random postie

The other day Maia was refusing to wipe herself on the potty.  I asked her if she wanted me to do it, or dada. “No!!”  I asked her if she wanted Cattee to do it.  She looked at me incredulously and exclaimed, “But Cattee has no arms and no hands!”  😀


We passed by a skateboard summer camp last week for 6-12 year olds.  Beanie says, “Want to try it!”
