If January is a leaden slog of a month, February it its light-footed cousin. Signs of spring are everywhere.
Stilt walkers are marvels to young and old, especially ones that can hoist and chase three-year-old boys.
Three-year-old boys are always five to 10 seconds away from a monster, penis or poo reference. So when a library singer storyteller asked “What is your favorite food?” and Theo’s hand shot up, I was relieved when he said “Monsters!”
There is no substitute for a first-rate facepainter. Kristal Yee of Faceaballoonza whipped up a stunning Spiderman for Theo and speedily decorated my eyes with sparkly cherry blossoms at the BC Home and Garden Show.
Two hours of sniffing, swirling and sipping at The Vancouver Wine Festival, and a new birthday tradition is born.
The best way to deal with the Pineapple Express is with a colourful umbrella.
Preschoolers are masters of mispronunciation, which for Theo includes “Science Squirrel [World],” and his always-in-season rendition of Jingle Bells: “Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way … OLD MCFARM AND A MISTY RIDE on a one-horse open sleigh.” Unfortunately, his pronunciation of the F-word is dead on.
Three-year-olds love to “help” so I often give Theo a good ole cutting job. And he even eats this crunchy green stuff.
Enough from me. Did you have any revelations this past month?
