June 14: Swingers.
A Romanian-Hungarian friend invited us over to her house to say goodbye today. Even though we had very few words in common, some things were easy to understand, despite our language differences: her puppy, two pet bunnies, fresh cucumbers, sliced bread, strawberry cake, shade from a cherry tree, and porch swings in the afternoon sunshine.

June 11: Happy feet.
Giggles and his preschool colleagues had their end-of-year show today. Imagine 12 four-year-olds dressed like penguins … and the reality was a thousand times cuter than that!

June 9: Water, water, everywhere.
Giggles + 2 friends + 1 big kid named “Daddy” + 1 water hose + 2 water guns = 1 big, fun, soaking mess!

May 30: Their secret garden.
I wonder what they’re whispering about, don’t you?

May 27: Armed.
Here’s the broken arm. You’d never know it, though, the way he horses around with his brother and stampedes through the house … much to my maternal chagrin!

May 25: Heavy metal.
Here’s what I envision my knee and my son’s elbow look like inside. Our bone repairs are probably a little more delicate- and precise-looking, right? Right??

May 24: Homebound.
Instead of these balloons, this guy came home with 2 pins in his elbow, 12 stitches, and a soft cast for a souvenir. But we’re home. Home.

May 23: Silver lining.
Spent the night and day in the hospital with Giggles. Thankfully, the staff fast-tracked him and he had surgery to fix his elbow within five hours of breaking it. Thankfully, he hadn’t eaten dinner before his accident and was able to go under anesthesia right away. Thankfully, the nurses pulled two hospital beds side-by-side and I was able to stay with him, to comfort him, to comfort myself by listening to his slow, deep, sleeping breaths.

May 22: No picnic.
We spent the day touring the countryside around Poprad, Slovakia, and car-picnicking at a scenic overlook of the Tatra Mountains. In the evening, we headed to Aqua City for some water-park fun and a laser show. Little did we know, we’d end up in the emergency room preparing my four-year-old for surgery to pin his broken elbow. Yes, it happened again.

May 20: Stop the presses.
Boisterous brothers. Crank wheels on old printing presses. A perfect match.
