A Pirate’s Life for Me!

We are told more often than not we are told how happy Lex and Loki are as children. “What a happy baby!” or “He is just so happy!” So, to have a child who looks like the end of the world is coming is a bit of a discouraging.

Today we ventured out to Western Massachusetts to our dear friends Patrick & Sara’s (yes this is the same Patrick who saved Bolt from being lost forever in Holyoke). The main purpose of this trip was to celebrate their youngest daughter’s 7th birthday, the other secret reason for the trip was to get syrup! I think most of us had a lovely time. Lex flirted with anyone who would talk to him, ever going up to a complete stranger to hug her legs without warning. Loki enjoyed babbling away in her carseat, talking to anyone who came by to admire her pretty blue eyes. Mad Dog & I got to socialize between looking for Lex and telling him to stop doing whatever he was doing that might result in future tear or blood.

As for Gigi – well I would like to say that she had a great time, but I don’t know if I can. I think she has gotten it in her head a bit that when she comes to visit she should be the center of attention. This happened the other week at the Reunion, when my cousin Morgan paid a little too much attention to the other kids leading to Gigi sitting inside sulking. Today seemed to be just about the same. I don’t know if it was because it was Saebra’s Birthday (FYI -Pink Pirate Party) or that Aurelia was being a good host to the kids guests. Though it looked like her Dog has been hit by a fence post and died (some people know this story – you can ask me when she’s not around) – when told we were going to get going, she started to beg to stay. We don’t understand the behavior, and I think at this late stage in the summer – can’t even start to worry about it. We can only push her along and remind her that she is missing out, because she isn’t willing to try. She would rather say it’s because of someone else – Morgan didn’t want to play with her or Aurelia isn’t talking to her. I ever kids has those days, but to have them just about every other makes for a very long and unhappy life.

Even Pirates have a little “Yo Ho” in their lives!
