Note to Mommy

Liam had some extra time in class the other day and wrote this somewhat puzzling note to Mommy.

First day of Kindergarten

Our little kid is growing up.  Today is his first day of kindergarten.  Heather took Liam out yesterday for a special lunch since, as she put it, she won't be having (weekday) lunches with Liam anymore.  >>Sniffle<<  They had a nice surprise during their lunch.  Miss Susan, who used to have Story Time at Borders before it closed and is starting up Story Time at Barnes and Noble soon, joined them for lunch.  She's know Liam since he was only a few months old.  She's taking her eldest daughter, Kendall, to her first year in college, all the way over in Boston.

Liam has four classmates from preschool last year in his kindergarten class (and one teammate from T-Ball) so he'll have some familiar faces, as well as many new ones.  There are 28 kids total in his class and there are four kindergarten classes total.  Lots of kids but he's the only Liam in the list.  According to Baby Center, it's the most popular name among parents for boys in 2012 so far.

I hope he has a fun year.  Damn, our little kid is growing up.

Dino facts

Liam's current obsession is dinosaurs and it completely replaced his obsession with sharks.  When he wakes up in the morning, he lies there and whispers facts about dinosaurs to himself.  He is so weird.

The Influence of NFL Training Camp

Since we got NFL Training Camp (for the Wii) as a gift from Mommy last Christmas, Liam has become an expert on jump squats, bag hops, crunches with punches and other fun things.  He also learned to how to do planks and bridges and he likes practicing these moves wherever he can.

One other thing he's picked up from NFL Training Camp is saying "Come on!" when he thinks it's appropriate.   We were wondering where he picked up this phrase from when I heard it last night from the game's trainer. Of course he picks the worst times to use this phrase like when we're frustrated by the way the MapQuest app directed us to a dead-end street when we were trying to get on Lake Shore Drive so we could get to the Midway airport on time for our flight.  I've noticed that he likes to use "Come on!" when were in the car.  Mommy especially does not like this.

Go Fish!

"Grandma, do you have a yellow tang?"
"Thanks for nothing!"

Good grief!

From Liam this morning: "good grief!"

From Daddy: "you got that phrase from Mommy"

Liam: "I'm full of good griefs!"

Blogging on the go!

From time to time, Liam's half dozen fans ask me why there have been no blog posts lately... The easy any answer is, I'm lazy. I don't use the PC at home much, so I don't post many updates. But now the good folks at Google have made an app that will let me post from my phone. Whoo-hoo! Many more Liam stories are on their way!
