Comments for Thoughts on Sushi

Sushi for New YearsThoughts On Sushi: 07/21/06

Every so often Sean decides he wants to try sushi but so far he hasn't followed through with his plans. I think once he's actually faced with a piece of raw fish on some rice he feels compelled to change his mind.

Anyway, Sean has once again declared that he really does want to try sushi. Ian told him he'd have to wait until after Harriet was born and that lead to a dozen versions of "Why?" and "How come?" from Sean. Ian explained that I "really, really like sushi" but I "can't have any until after Harriet is born." Sean thought about this for a while and nodded. Then he added, "When you have a Harriet in your tummy, you can't have sushi. You can only eat pancakes, waffles and biscuits." So apparently I'm on the breakfast only diet and all fetuses are now named Harriet.


Sean has out grown his oldest pairs of underwear as he's had them for more than a year (yes, it took that long to get him interested in potty training). Last night after school Ian and I took him to Target to get some new pairs.

Sean was as always confused because we both showed up and it wasn't Friday. He was also upset because the tip of one of the velcro straps on his shoes broke off and he really likes his shoes. Either this weekend (Saturday) or next weekend, he and I will head back to Payless to get new shoes for him. Won't that be fun?

Anyway, we had no trouble finding a large selection of things for Sean to wear. He was especially happy to see the frog patterned underwear offered in a larger size. His new pairs just fit (in that they are almost too loose) and should last him until he's ready to start kindergarten next year.
