Some hilarious quotes of the kids of the preschool I shadow at three days a week (names have been changed): ELLA: I’ve never been on an airplane before, but when I do, I’ll make sure I miss you a lot. BEN: My mom’s at work fighting lots of fires in her firefighter outfit. (His mom is actually a businesswoman who flies to France all the time…) JUSTIN: (when asked about...
It was lots of fun being in Denver and seeing all my cousins and having Thanksgiving and the bar mitzvah + party. Definitely the biggest Thanksgiving I’ve ever had—over thirty people. Plus I got to rock it out at the party. My baby cousin Avi—not so much a baby anymore at 13 years old, I suppose—did a great job and we were all so proud. We also got to go to Red Rocks and...
I’m off today to Colorado for Thanksgiving week/end but also for my cousin’s bar mitzvah. Fun! I’m gonna dance my pants off, obvs. Particularly to Cotton-Eyed Joe and to whatever hyphy songs we demand the DJ play at the party.

Despite contracting conjunctivitis (alas, probably won’t be the last time for a while—-the dangers of working with small children) and today’s onset of rain, it’s been a pretty busy/good week. The little boy who I work with in the mornings played successfully with shaving cream today—woohoo! Okay, that sounds a little strange, but tactile activities can be difficult...
