Quinn's Day

I'm the first to admit that I'm weird about bananas. They can't be too ripe (or, really, ripe at all) and they can't have spots on them, and if they're mushy at all, I'm not a-gonna eat them. Quinn, however, seems to think that a banana is broken if its peel has been entirely removed. And God forbid you actually do break the banana. Well, you might as well be offering him arsenic.

This, apparently, is the correct format for a banana:

The incorrect way to present a banana to the young gentleman is in two pieces with no peel. It took me two bananas today to get it right. And then he ate half of one, accidentally snapped the bottom part off, and then discarded it as a poor excuse for food. Consequently my breakfast today was comprised of one and a half bananas.

That was breakfast. For lunch, Quinn showed off his love of basketball:

This was the first meal in a long time not marred by constant toddler jabbering of "Saskaball! Saskaball! Saskaball!" (If you can't tell from the picture, by the way, he's clutching it in one hand while making tracks in his peanut butter and honey with the other.

Afternoon was a playdate. At said playdate I spent some time holding Adorable Baby K. Quinn's response to this, instead of his usual "Baby!" was, "Nice." I responded with, "Nice baby." Quinn said, "Nice," then paused, clearly struggling to find the right noun, and then came up with, "Doggie!"

A day in the life...


  1. You crack me up! Of course, I'm weird about bananas too ... in my case, they can't be green AT ALL, and must have just the right amount of brown spots... the ones that aren't ripe enough make me gag. Isn't it funny how we're all "weird" in slightly different ways?

    Love that Quinn ... and his sasketball!

  2. Hi there! I have a boy who was born in October 2001, too. My daughter was born March 2004, but I don't know how closely that matches up with you kids...anyway, I like your blog. It made me smile.
