- Caedmon and I are re-adjusting to having the two big kids gone for much of the day. He talks about Batman a lot. A common refrain from him goes something like this: "Mommy, Batman just texted me and we're going to work together at naptime," or "Mommy, I just texted Batman, and we're going to share our candy, 'cause sharing is nice."
He does all this Batman-texting on this thing:
It's an old hand-held video game of Derek's, now Caedmon's "Batman Phone."
- I cut these hydrangeas today. I wanted to have some kind of flower in the house because I can't bring myself to spend any appreciable time outside in this heat and humidity. People of the South: How do you do it? Because we're not even a week into the heat and I'm feeling sick, homicidal, or both when I spend too long out there in Satan's mouth.
- One more thing I forgot to mention about Charleston: Everyone is unfailingly polite, even on their street signs.
