Oh, where or where....

does the time go?

I may, in fact, be writing to myself since it's been a couple months since I blogged and it's quite possible no one is out there...Is there anyone out there?

I'm hating myself for being a bad blogger.

But, seriously, where did the summer go?

And how did it get to be almost October? And how is it possible that my daughter is turning four? FOUR!

So, she's in school now full days (9 a.m. to 3 p.m.)

It's a good school. So far, it's a great school. They teach Mandarin and French. Which I think is super smart.

And The Dictator loves telling me the new words she's learned when I picke her up.

Just yesterday in fact she said, "Merci."

And I said, "What's that mean?"

And The Dictator said, "It means 'Thank you' in Mandarin."

Ah, my little genius.

The only problem I see about her learning Mandarin is that I don't know how to speak Mandarin, which means whatever she tells me, I'll have to take as being right.

(Even though the girl thinks that if she climbs on a ladder she can reach the moon.)

As for my life, I can now do a handstand in yoga. I'm working on a new book, called Toddlers Gone Wild.

And just trying to figure out where the time went....

I promise ti be a better blogger now. So "Merci" for being patient. That's 'Thank you' in Mandarin.
