There has been a lot of lego warfare going on with intermittent shouts of “Tactical Nuke --Incoming!!”. Ethan has literally been counting down the days to school. I have tried to keep him busy at home and with friends, as he seems to feel boredom viscerally, as a kind of real pain.
He takes such joy in the English language. At the library he typed in LOL into the library catalogue and cracked up when it brought up the title “Why some pigs eat their own: The real joy of raising kids”.
Ethan: “Hahaha! What does that have to do with LOL??”
Me: “A lot more than you think.”
When Ethan saw the snow on the mountain tops, he yelled at the top of his lungs, “Tactical Snow --- Incoming!”
