the eric update - day 619: just desserts!

every so often we try and find something that odin enjoys more than his dessert staple of frozen blueberries and tonight the challenger was edy's toffee almond ice cream dibs. surely any sane toddler would enjoy ice cream bits covered with chocolate, toffee and almonds over boring ol' frozen fruit.

but not odin. to him, apparently, there is nothing quite as consistently yummy as your humble vaccinium corymbosum ( although some of his relatives might argue that vaccinium_angustifolium is The Bestest Blueberry ).

and yes, i knoooooow that the phrase is technically "just deserts" and actually references an obsolete meaning of the word 'desert', so go prove your etymological prowess elsewhere :-)

"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.
