Kids making business deals
My two-year old, Rocco,walks over to where I’m at , takes me by the hand to where he and his brother, Rockford, are having breakfast. He shows me he has finished all his sausages and gestures that he wants the ones sitting on Rockford’s plate. Without saying anything, he picks up his piece of nutri-grain bar from his own plate and hands it to Rockford. Rockford, in turn, places his sausages on Rocco’s plate. And just like that, my boys learned how to barter.
I guess I was called over to supervise their transaction. Who says it’s too early to learn Business 101 at home?

"Can I drive yet?"
We are at a red light waiting…
Rockford: “There is a car in front of us Rocco! Do you want us to crash?!”
Summer Heats Up
Water splashing never felt so good
On a hot and humid day, we headed out to Balboa Park to visit Rockford’s favorite museums and we ended up spending most of our time outside playing in the water. What joy and delight this simple and pure activity brought to my boys. I watched in delight, once again reminded of life’s simple pleasures.
And the winner is…
- One of many bag options
I had Rockford pick out the name of the winner for the sweepstakes. I handed him a bowl with all the entries and said, “Winner, winner, chicken dinner, pick the winner Rockford!” He replied, “I want to win the dinner!” After picking the winner he went through every name and came to me with a look of disappointment. “What’s wrong?” I asked. He replied, I didn’t see my name in there so I couldn’t win the dinner.” …I laughed too.
