the eric update - day 484: the awesome adventures of captain broccoli!

being fast asleep by the time the halloween trick or treating begins in earnest doesn't stop our mild-mannered former (?) micropreemie, from donning his "captain broccoli" costume in an effort to spread the message that green vegetables are yummy and good for for and much better than the usual fair found on all hallow's eve.

maybe, just maybe, next year everyone will be clamoring for the coolest costume, ever. or more likely, by next year odin will be accusing us of being the meanest parents ever unless we get him a "real" constume, let him stay up late and tromp around the neighborhood filling his bag with candy.

until then, we'll always remember this halloween as the year that odin was still happy to bound about the house defending the rights of green vegetables everywhere :-)

i tried to convince him that an improvised version of "the chopping broccoli song might make a perfect theme, but he wasn't sure it had the gravitas appropriate for his Very Important Mission.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
