Or moment, depending on whom you talk to.
Regardless, here’s some stuff The Four-Year-Old and I noticed about the world this week:
- Painting squirrels: NBC report
- Rescued dolphins: Six dolphins stranded off Cape Cod, 300 others guided safely out of Wellfleet harbor (“It’s just like on Diego!” The Four-Year-Old said, when I read her this clip.)
- Four really expensive books about birds: A four-volume set of John James Audubon’s Birds of America could sell for $7-10 million at auction today
- An etiquette primer for preschoolers and their moms alike: Would it kill you to stop doing that? Ironically, if the excerpt at NPR is any indication, you may need to edit out a few obscenities if you do decide to share the etiquette advice with your preschooler.
- Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum’s new wing opens: The Four-Year-Old and I missed the ribbon cutting due to a previous engagement, but I sense a Mommyo-Four-Year-Old outing to the museum in our near future.
Five whole links. I’m exhausted. Why did I give up coffee again?
See you tomorrow. Maybe. If I can summon up the energy. Or The Four-Year-Old says something funny. Something other than, “Mommyo, do you see the grey wood over there? It matches your hair.”
Leave a note. Tell me what you’re reading.
