Week 2: Flashback Friday

For this week's Flashback Friday, I'm choosing from Day 4 through Day 8. The first week of school was a short week, so our numbering is a bit off. Keep in mind that everything was still in the very early stages here. This whole Wave At The Bus thing was not premeditated. It just evolved. We weren't even really in full blown "costume" mode, just random objects and toys from around the house. Which is why I give the Flashback Friday award to Day Eight - You Light Up My Life

Maybe I liked this one because I was out of town, so it was the first (and only?) photo I didn't take (our neighbor Mark filled in for me on the camera). When Mark emailed me the photo I laughed out loud at the silliness and the simplicity of it. And sometimes it's the little details that really make these good--Dale is wearing a shirt that Rain once gave him for Father's Day. His shirt says "World's Greatest Dad."

And, by way of honorable mention, this week's runner-up is: Day Five - AdiĆ³s mi querido hijo. I loved this one because we have an ongoing "Alejandro" joke in our family. I'll spill the beans on that in a future post.


  1. Hello, I work for a publisher who wants to use one of your photos - the one that appear on Bell Sympatico website. Can you contact me with your email address? You can reach me at jennnat at

  2. When you got on TV I heard some comments that I didn't agree with saying you were intentionally embarrassing your son to teach him a lesson, did you feel they were valid at all? Were you trying to teach him something? I read your story and the vibe I got was "Fun Dad wants to engage his son and doesn't care what anyone else thinks!"
