A couple of weeks ago, as I was reading stories to Miles in the evening, I heard the soft clicking of Amy’s camera going off in the hall. Wasn’t sure whether we were in her frame or not, but found the sound comforting. Tonight we got take-out sushi to eat at home and Miles had his first taste of sashimi — appropriate because we’ve been reading about Yoko, the cat who took sushi to school (none of the other kids in the story could grok it, leaving poor Yoko struggling for cool in a terminally un-hip, merciless world). Miles’ first sushi experience went well, and he actually did succeed in eating with chopsticks, kinda, but he mostly enjoyed making balls out of rice and batting them around while calling out “Rice balls! Rice balls!” After tonight’s storytime, this lovely valentine rolled into my inbox. I love my family.
