ex machina

the eric update - day 847: one way i never expected to spend some time on a saturday afternoon.

don't get me wrong, i don't have anything against nascar and i know a lot of people who enjoy watching advertisement-laden cars racing around in circles, but i've never been one to choose to spend much time getting into the motorsport. but odin loves his playing with his toy cars and he certainly enjoys what he calls my coo car so i guess it should come as no surprise if he happens to flip on the television and there happens to be a race on, he's more than happy to take a seat in his rocking chair, wrap himself in his favorite blanket, and narrate the action.

"oh, look, poppi! coo cars! racing!"

and whooweee, it's exciting to watch the cars go into the pit for a fresh set of tires, because everyone knows that taking off tires is Very Big Fun.

"see! tires! taking off!"

and, of course, it's not very long before he yells, "oh, poppi! car crash!"

LoL. that's why my hubby always keeps a few rally races and motorcycle races on the tivo. we can't stand nascar, but the boy, he loves his "racecars!"

we don't have teh tivo, but i think it would be a great idea to get a dvd of some races. surely that sort of thing must exist.

"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."

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.
