It's officially time for a readjustment of our expectations. Yesterday, we brought him to Got Craft! to volunteer for Modo. All three of use were wearing our Modo t-shirts & we did get the chance to talk to a few people about car sharing. However, it was a lot less fun than it used to be when we didn't have to prevent our child from running headlong at large dogs, screeching when either of us went to go do something & cleaning crumbs off of everything. I think our future volunteer work is going to have to happen Sproutless.

|Helping with the shopping.|
His language skills are getting to be conversational. He's now starting to reply appropriately when asked questions by strangers & people he knows but doesn't see that often. He's also picked up a lot of songs recently & constantly sings bits of Christmas carols, including some in German, like 'Oh Time-in-baum'. Bonus points if you can name the actual title of that one.

All in all, despite the challenges, it's been a fun month. If I hadn't already learned it by now, this past few weeks would really have hammered it home that with children, the only constant is change.
Nothing says “best gift ever” like a gray fox!
Starting at just $40, Gifts of Canadian Nature help protect habitat for Canada’s native wildlife. A Gift of Canadian Nature lasts for years to come and is a gift that gives thrice! Once to the recipient with a personalized certificate and a beautiful calendar, once to the giver with a charitable tax receipt, and once to Canadian wildlife. This year we are featuring the snowy owl, the grizzly bear, the caribou, the gray fox and the Canada lynx. Click the image or follow this link for more information.
