ex machina

the eric update - day 825: when a box is a bathtub.

odin has been kicking his imaginative play into high gear and almost daily he'll entertain us with an amusing glimpse into his Imagination.

he loves, loves, loves(!) to help out around the house doing all manner of chores including sweeping the floor. so we were mighty excited when we found a pint-sized broom from for small hands that he could use instead of wrestling with the Big People's Broom ( as an aside, the broom is extremely well made in thailand by "workers under fair labor conditions" ).

but alas, instead of joyously running around the house sweeping till he couldn't sweep anymore, he was far more interested in the box the broom arrived in. after removing all the storage "peanuts" ( fun! ), he laid on his back and started kicking his legs vigorously.

"see! i'm swimming! odin's bafftub!"

"poppi, try!"

"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.
