May (and beyond…)

Someday (maybe when Julie’s in kindergarten?) we will catch up on our blog posts. In the meantime, some highlights of May. It’s so fun to discover what Julie’s favorite activities are. Swinging at the playground is up there.

And clapping and playing with scarves in music class.

And maybe her favorite, making messes with Max’s usually off-limit puzzles while he’s at school.

It’s fun to get glimpses of possible futures for our funny kids. This month we explored some possible careers for Max (don’t know if that professional soccer player thing is going to work out from what we’ve seen…). Maybe a baker? He is a great assistant to his mom in the kitchen, cracking eggs, measuring and dumping, and licking the beater.

Scientist? He was very amused by some experiments in a demo science class we tried.

Mock dental patient? He was so excited about his first cleaning and talked about it for weeks after.
Max's first cleaning at the dentist - he loved it and talked about it for weeks
Or maybe a one-shoed Irish dancer? He was eager to dance at an Irish festival, just only not with his mom.

We only noticed afterward that he was jigging with only one shoe on

Pinata breaker? (PS he did not break the piƱata, nor did any of the kids).

Max’s resume is almost as complicated as his mom’s. Brittney revisited one of her favorite career adventures and choreographed a piece for Max’s preschool 1920s themed benefit.

Directing and choreographing are hard to balance with young kids, so Brittney’s been working on more flexible endeavors like her website Kid On The Town. She’s been revisiting her programming past to make the site more database-driven and is working on a searchable summer music calendar. Watch its progress if you want to know how the kids are napping these days (currently Julie will sleep in her crib after about a minute of hysterical sleeping, Max likes to fall asleep in the stroller but not in his bed).
