taste test

Luc's Moses basket is so two weeks ago, which saddens a girl who used to design her sock drawer as the basket looked great in the house. However Luc is testing his strength (he even did his first turnover this past week). He also cries at the mention of "basket." There was only one thing to do, go to Babies 'R Us and get one of those bouncy chairs with as many flourishes and colors as Mardi Gras.

He was immediately taken by what I thought was my surrender to a nonsensical item that fuels a billion dollar industry--it took him less than 15 minutes to channel his inner boxer and tackle those twirling animals. I did wish that I could get the Charles Eames version of a chair that Kourtney Kardashian would approve, but motherhood changes one's design aesthetic. Luc gets final say.

Expect more on The Four Tides shortly with BBQs, kids, organization, our new shelves and summers' last hurrah...

Your right to choose just flew out the window and won't return for about 20 years!!

But do you really care with such a beautiful boy who, I must say carries just the right name!

Luc gets more precious with each picture; I can just "see" him concentrating so hard and boxing the little figures!
