A few extra pictures from our Ali/Radford fun:
“I don’t trust you farther than I can throw my diaper, woman….”
“He’s making me CRAAAZY!!!”

Feeding the Ducks, again…
On that particular duck-feeding trip, we went onto the pier to feed them. There was this kid, about Ali’s age, being held by his Mom and right next to us. He asked “Can I have some bread to feed them too?” Of course, wanting to be the nice Mommy, I handed him some, and he threw it.
Then, he asked for more. As I was about to hand it to him, his mom said somewhat haughtily, “He’s VERY allergic to wheat.”
I stammered an apology and felt awful…
Then I thought about it.
Shouldn’t she have said something when she heard him ask for it the first time? And shouldn’t she have corrected him, so he’d learn not to do it next time, rather than the complete stranger?
And so, I exonerated myself from all guilt.
Here’s Ali and her first girl-cousin, baby Tessa! We went to a photo shoot for a new hairbow site (I’ll tell you more about it when it’s up), and Tessa was there too, so they “hung out”.
Because I’m a big believer in bribery (I used to feel guilty about it till my Mom told me it was a very acceptable and effective parenting tool), This was Ali’s reward for smiling pretty at the Photo shoot:
