"Daddy, Hayman was a bad man."

Saul is learning about Purim in nursery school. I was completely bowled over when he told me the story of Queen Esther (abbreviated a little) after school today. He is learning, and growing

Which leads to dinner at the Elephant Bar tonight with Mike and Evie. They just got home from their vacation trip, and we went for dinner.

Evie ordered a french dip sammich. She gave Saul some of the roast beef, and he ate it, like a madman. with a toothpick as a skewer. and ate more and more

After the skrimps at Original Joes, I must say, I am bowled over.

he ate. he took real, solid food, and put it in his mouth. chewed it up and swallowed it. Like a real kid.

I nearly fainted.

so cool

Sara has put him on a program of TWO and only TWO books per night at bedtime. Else he will ask for more and more.

tonight we read "Go Dog Go" and "A Fly Went By" he drank 9 oz of pediasure, then 3 oz of milk, and went to sleep after the Fly went by. No fuss, rolled over and went to bed.


If you take away nothing else about Purim, remember this:

"We are also commanded to eat, drink and be merry. According to the Talmud, a person is required to drink until he cannot tell the difference between "cursed be Haman" and "blessed be Mordecai," though opinions differ as to exactly how drunk that is."

What a great holiday! :)
His tummy was full! Glad to hear he's doing so well. Aunt Donna keeps me posted! Debbie
