My Casual Articulate

My Thing 1 wanted to be with mommy this week. It feels, well, you know, like the whole world is right when your kid wants nothing more than to love on you. We talked about love this morning and here's what he said:

Thing 1: "I don't really like it when people tell me they love me. I'm not okay with it. I feel like my Didj and I just 'power down' -- you know like, powering down?"

Me: "Yes, I can totally understand that. But people tell you they love you so that you never have to wonder whose side we're all on. Your family loves you so much that they want to tell you."

Thing 1: "Well, I love them, but I don't want to say that. It really makes me feel like there is a Disc Error. Like a bad disc error. Like when you can't read the hard drive?"

Me: "Yes, son. I know what it's like."

Thing 1: "That's how I feel about love."

Boda, originally uploaded by Thing Family.

So little time to write. I have a damn dog. Okay, a good damn dog, but a dog none-the-less.

Boda is Spanish for "wedding," and although @LaGringa don't have the right to marry in California, we do have the right to have a damn good anniversary. This year, we spent it at the SPCA in San Francisco finding our new dog. His name means something to us.

Now you can say we have a wedding.
