Bedtime Snapshot

Damon is taking Alden down to bed.

Damon: Say goodnight to everyone.
Alden:
— Good night Mommy
— Good night Grammy
— Good night Foot-Bump Elliot*
— See you tomorrow pizza**
(trailing away down the stairs)
— Good night noodles***
— Good night cookies***

*Out of concern for flu season in general and swine flu in particular, our pediatrician suggested we teach Alden to greet Elliot by patting him on the foot rather than getting right in his face. Every single nurse I saw in the hospital warned me about swine flu — it’s rampant here.
**As he passed our boxed leftovers. He was correct.
***He ate no such thing that day.

  9. I have a box! They’re from Trader Joe’s, though, and are “Trader Os.” They’re the same thing, though!
