We used to get out of the house on day trips a lot, but with Kaio at school I'm tempted to stay indoors with Nala laying low. Kaio was our fire, our yang. Now we're peacefully maintaining the house. It may sound old fashioned, a digression of the social equality women have strived to achieve. I've done plenty of corporate productivity in my life and proved that I can be a woman in the workplace and all that. Now I'm glad I have the right to stick at home, peacefully domestic.
Drawing in the yard
Power tools. This one is a toy, but I let them use the real drill too.
Shaping the tapioca cheese bread (pao de quejo)
Sawing the drag ramp
The Spiderman web we found spun to the front grass fronds on the way to the bus stop, covered in dew
The "nest" Nala made, with rock eggs
The only time they have ever set the table. Who knew they could do this without any instruction?
There was an incentive (brought over by our neighbors)
Putting Rainbow Dash to sleep in a castle
We watched Avengers and the kids turned into super heroes. Kaio became Captain America, tossing a throw pillow around the house and almost taking down the TV. Nala transformed into a princess who throws petals at the bad guys. She also fights in heals, and wears jewelry She calls herself Dragon Fire.
