Kale is currently....
Watching lots of Dora and Curious George, and also some Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. We're not quite sure how he got into the Mickey Mouse - probably a random tap during a YouTube session on the iPad led him there. Regardless, he's hooked. When it's 5:30am and he decides he wants to wake up and party, I could almost care less about what he's watching.
Reading some new favourites, including Mealtime (if only he'd pick up a lesson or two from this book about staying in your seat until you're finished eating), Love You Forever (I think I'm an animal - I no longer get teary eyed reading this one), and Little Star's Big Adventure (again with the Dora....but this book comes with a flashlight which is GENIUS).
Eating pretty much whatever is put in front of him - unless it's dinner, which he rarely eats these days. Kale is not a picky eater and doesn't really seem to have favourites. I mean, if you ask him what he wants he will almost always say "Pasta!" but I think this is more about being the only thing he can drum up in the imagination, opposed to being a favourite.
I am currently.....
Watching Downton Abbey. There was no way I could wait until January for it to come to North America, so I've been streaming the new episodes (currently being shown in the UK) online. Is anyone else watching?? I'm always up for a good DA gossip session, so let me know. I'm also enjoying Parenthood, Parks & Recreation, and Grey's Anatomy.
Reading The Next Best Thing, by Jennifer Wiener. I normally love her books - smart chick lit, really. But this one? This one I cannot get into. Other than that, I'm reading the usual - blog posts and research reports.
Eating Halloween candy. I know - ALREADY! Last night Kale and I went to the bulk barn and bought a few treats. And by 'few' I mean 'a 2lb. bag of chocolate peanut butter pumpkins.'
Inspired by Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard. You've watched the video, right? No? Go watch, I'll wait: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihd7ofrwQX0
Thinking about how much I like this link-up. Despite the fact that I'm always pushing these posts out at the last minute and it takes me a week to read through everyone's posts, I really enjoy having these little 'currently' posts to look back (especially because I'm no longer doing monthly updates for Kale).
