Filoli - again
Wanted to show FIL at least some local place before his return to India.
Chose Filoli. Promised a 2 hour trip max. Still bad idea.
It was 96+ C out there. The van temp indicator read 106 F!
Filoli gardens are very well watered. The steam sizzles off the floor. The heat, humidity and pollen form a bad combination for people prone to hay fever.
So, this post will be brief...
Daddy danced with the little one again for a short time and she was ecstatic! We had fun while we were at Filoli. It just had side effects for daddy.
On a side note Jr. was busy making cards.
Me : ???
Jr. : I want to make a yellow card and a red card
Me : ???
Jr. : To give to amma! (mommy)
Me : (thinking.. finally someone in this house dares to give Amma a yellow card or red card ?! this must be some sight) ????
Jr. : That way if Amma feels slightly upset with someone in the house she can show them the yellow card and if she is really upset with someone she can give them the red card!
Me : (very disappointed, but accepting the inevitable fact that the only person who gets carding authority in the house as Amma) Can I give a yellow card?
Jr. : NO. Only Amma!
At the end of the day, we might actually adopt this system. Yellow is warning. Red card means person will have to go to garage for a timeout.
Jr. has some amazing solutions, doesn't she?
