Opening Day 2015

It is that time of year.  It is another sure sign of Spring  The Red Sox season starts today.  It's always such a spirit boost.  Especially after Snowmaggedon 2015.  There is still a lot of snow on the ground here.  It doesn't seem like it can possible be baseball season.  But it is here.  With all the promise that Opening Day represents.  It really is a magical day.  "This baseball is magic."  We could sure use some.

Easter Sunday 2015

Back to hosting Easter this year.  We had a year off last year.  I will say there was not a month plus build up like in years past.  She didn't sweat prep.  She created a great menu again.  Even the decorations were last minute.  We didn't pull out the decorations until yesterday.  Coco and I ended up doing the window display and set the table.  It was "low-fi" but it worked.  The Easter baskets were very bare bones.  Coco really go into the prep though.  It was nice to see him engaged.  Both the boys got into decorating the Easter eggs.  Well, maybe not too enthusiasm, but they showed some signs of life while doing it.  Coco was all about the Easter egg hunt.  He was a man on a mission.  He actually begged the crap out of Demi while she was cooking like a mad woman.  He could not wait this AM, to go out and hide the eggs.  He had to make sure the total eggs hidden was divisible by 4.  Fair is fair after all.  The winner was my nephew.  He had a ball during the hunt.  He got the full attention of his cousins.  He was so excited.  In turn, I think it really made Coco feel good.  Mission accomplished.

Having a Good Day

It was a good day today.  Coco got up and at 'em early.  He got off to school  He came home and went right to his buddy's house.  He stayed there for a few hours.  It's great to see him actively socializing.  He needs that.  We need that.  His friends have been really great through all of this.  It's been a real positive.

April Fool's 2015

A slight hiccup.  It's a short week with Good Friday.  We were really hoping to get Coco into school for the 4 days this week.  It was not to be.  He "couldn't" make it today."  And this wasn't an April Fool's joke.  I do think he was playing us a bit.  Going to the well with a staple causation.  We took away electronics during school hours.  It's for his own good.  He can't be comfortable at home on days like these.  He needs to push it.  We will bet back on track tomorrow.
