epic day in photos.

this morning's episode of sesame street featured a variety of robots, so eli was in a big robot mood at the park today. he insisted on bringing this weird plastic tote bag and wearing it on his head as a 'robot helmet.'

jason came home from a 3 day business trip, bearing cupcakes. eli was pumped.

watching stuff about robots must have flipped some kind of science nerd switch in eli, because we spent a lot of the day talking about science-y stuff. he asked me a lot of questions about planets, which was really cool. i showed him a chart of the planets and told him all the names, and explained how they rotate around the sun. i don't know how much of it he's going to retain, but it's a good start, and he seemed really interested, which was awesome! we drew a big solar system in chalk on our parking lot tonight:

and then he wanted to ride a rocket ship to the moon:

then he asked me to draw a ladder so he could get out of the rocket ship:

uh, pretty cute.

then, as a grand finale for the evening, he used all his sugared-up energy to serenade us, using the safety handle of his tricycle as a standing microphone:

safety first.

so, tonight i broke eli's toy screwdriver. after getting accidentally jabbed in the eye with the REAL screwdriver i allowed him to play with for weeks, i took it away, and then i felt like a jerk. we found his plastic screwdriver at a friend's house, and it kept falling apart so i glued it back together. then he was begging me to pull it apart again, so i tried, and it broke in an unfixable manner. boooo! jason felt bad for him and brought up the tool bag.

wounded soul

much like his mother, elijah really hates to have the fun end. he did not want to go back inside after blowing some bubbles during a spring MONSOON at grandma & grandpa's:

wounded

everett was unimpressed:
wounded (spirit, not body.)

unfortunately, i empathize all too well. i'm sorry eli, when you're an adult, i think this is going to be what they call "an addictive personality."

passed out

eli doesn't really nap anymore, but occasionally he'll fall asleep in the car or something. yesterday he must have been really tired, because he conked out right in the middle of the skate video he begged me to watch:
