oh great

So. Y'all are NaBloPoMoing, or at least thinking about it, right? Great. As discussed last year at this very time, and the year before that, even, I am all about the "cool kids and what they're doing". This does not bode well for raising my boys, really, does it? Can't you just hear it:

boys: "but mummy, EVERYONE is jumping off bridges!"
me: "OMG, well if EVERYONE is doing it, you guys TOTALLY have to!! You probably should also smoke some weed too, because eventually all the cool kids will be doing that TOO!"

Wow.

Anyway, so I'm thinking about it. Let's see how it goes, shall we?

In other tasty news, I made paneer on the weekend, and it rocks. It's actually simmering nicely now in a batch of saag paneer which I am about to go and eat.

I wonder if I could spend November blogging about what I'm about to eat? Would you read that?

Yeah. Me neither.

"m" is for the million ways he loooves me...

Walking home from school today:

max: So do you know what my name means?
me: Um - no?
max: Well, the "M" is for mature - because I think I'm pretty mature, don't you?
me: Actually, yeah.
max: And the "A" is - uh....
me: Athletic?
max: Yeah! I'm pretty athletic.
me: You sure are.
max: And the "X" - well, there aren't many words that are descriptive that start with "X" so let's say...um...eXtreme!
me: Cool. But what about the rest of your name, like if you used your whole name - what about "W"?
max: Hmmm....wacky.
me: Good one. And "E"?
max: Energetic! Because that describes me!
me: Definitely. How about "L"?
max: Hmmmm.....well....
me: I know! Lovable! Because you are definitely that!
max: Definitely. And for the second "L"...
me: Hmmm.....
max: Well, I was going to say lackey.
me: *laughing* Really?
max: Yeah. But that's really more of a description of you.
me: Wow. Really.
max: Yep. Really.

Nice.
