We go in Grandpa’s truck to the store for Poppy’s concert. I get a hot coffee please? Vanilla, thank you.
Grandma can dance! We dance outside too. I see a lady getting a massage.
It’s Jamie. And Rayner. And I give him a kiss on the cheek. Thank you Poppy. You played very well.
Look at this boy statue with Poppy. I’m going to come to your concert. Hi. Hi. I love you Poppy.
Shh, Mama, it’s Poppy music.
I’m dancing. I’m too busy right now. I danced over there!
Remember Rayner? I remember Rayner and Poppy and Rayner playing drums and Poppy playing music. And Tim. Tim is playing the other music. And I dancing. And I dancing with Tim.
Jamie is playing music. He played drums and all kind of music. All kind of things. It was Tim playing the little bucket. Poppy poppy poppy. I love my Poppy. I’m singing Poppy poppy poppy poppy.
Nana. I was dancing. I was playing with Poppy and Mimee. You go down and throw throw throw and I was dance dance dance. With my Mimee.
We eating dinner: Mama, Auntie, Mimee, Rebecca, Amy. How about a pizza? I like clams. My belly too hungry.
Drive in a car and go night night. Wake up, it’s Poppy! It’s Poppy’s friends. Look Mimee, it’s Jamie. Guitar. Drums. It’s music! I jumping! I dancing! I climb way up there! Bracelet please. Okay here you go.
No problemo. No problemo. No problemo. I sing it. I sing it at my house. I sing it in my bath. No problemo. I sing it in my bed. No problemo.
Da and Mama and me came to see Grandpa because of Father day. We had a yummy sausage lunch and then we took turns having naps. Grandma took me to the Proctor Farmer’s Market and I saw some music and some dogs and some flowers. Now I am showing everyone my music on thed tablet. And I am wiggling from my bottom up.
We are playing together on the rugs, me and Cami and Anna. Our mamas talk a lot, but it’s okay because we get lots of milk. Anna’s mama says a rhyme about little birds going to bed and waking up. Cami’s mama sings a German bouncing song. My Mama sings Sto Mi Je Milo, my Macadonian folk song, and then she sings my Ship in the Night lullabye. When our mamas sing, Cami and Anna and I listen very carefully. When we leave, I wave bye bye and blow kisses to my friends. Tonight I can see Easton too. I have lots of friends today!
Grandma came to see me! We went on a walk to Der Blokken to get crackers, and then we stopped by the Yellow House on the way back up the hill. We danced all over town. I like reggae. I was so happy to see Grandma because I remember how we play together even though I didn’t see her for almost three weeks. She gets to go see Aydan soon. I want to go too.
When Grandma started saying goodbye at the door, it made me feel quiet and a little sad. So I snuggled her, told her I love you with my fingers, and I blew her a big fat kiss.
When I woke up I told my Mama “I” because I wanted to know where Iris was. She played with me yesterday. Mama thought I said hi, so she said hi back, but I said louder “I-zs!” After our shower, Iris came! She played with me while Mama cleaned up and we had her at our meeting. She is really good at Barnyard Dance, and we did this amazing thing called Ring around the Rosie, which I liked intensely and almost cried when we had to stop for book time.
After nap, Mimee took me to wake up Poppy. He was listening to this tiny blue music, and now I am sharing it with him and Mimee. It’s kind of hard to handle, because I put it by my ear to hear it, but when I start dancing my hand accidentally moves my tiny music away from my head and I can’t hear it. I try over and over.
I’m at church. Ojai Valley Community Church. There are couches and story time and Mama let me play with her water bottle. I got a program too. I dance for the the music and spin around. Then I hold granola bars on my ears because they make a cool crinkley noise. I clean up my things by putting them all in my diaper bag. I clap when the music is finished. I’m sleepy. No I’m not! I tell Mama “up!” and I make my mouth round for a Nana face. You know what’s delicious? Orajel.
