Kevin is at work and Linus asked me yesterday, “Where is my father?”. We had his father’s good company for three days and there is always those few days after the separation that are… difficult. I am noting this pattern. And by noting this pattern I am getting through it easier. I am accepting that every second word out of Linus’s mouth is no. I am getting over the fact that he won’t eat my chocolate banana cake and thai noodles I made especially for him. Can you believe it?
So I reach back to all the parenting classes I took and remember sensory play is good during days like this (because watching motorcycles jumping on ramps is not). Right. There was a storm so after his nap Linus took an umbrella and played on the porch. I told him there was a big storm. He said “Its not a storm, its a dream”. Then we mixed colors which as you can see turned into something else. He is now taking a bath and I am quickly writing and posting this. After he will be clean and maybe we take a walk before we eat our dinner. I made spinach artichoke dip with bagel chips and avocado toast.
I am prepared for him to reject it all. I am prepared for this storm.
To put it simply: Skateboarding is what makes the world go around.
We are slowly catching up on our posts! Here’s one from Auntie Anna’s backyard in Walnut Creek during Christmas break!
Last month we were able to stay at a good friend’s house in Venice while he was off getting married. There were so many special moments from those few days, but here is one I especially wanted to share — Linus in front of an installation that one of my current favorite artists, Vhils did on Abbott Kinney Blvd. Linus would always run up to it as we went back for our morning fix. See more of the artists work here …. http://alexandrefarto.com
It’s also right in front of one of our new favorite coffee shops. Can’t wait to go back.

It almost 2012 here in New Orleans. I was looking through some of the photos from our recent trip to California. I found this one of Linus standing on a rock. This is the rock Kevin used to stand on as a kid. I asked Linus to stand there the morning we were leaving for the airport. And he did. I love the way he stands there. Can you see him clutching his skateboard? Do you see that look in his eyes?
