Linus plays rough with Joe Biden Bobble Head at Blue Rocks game

Linus went to his first Blue Rocks game yesterday. I was always going to go get a Joe Biden Bobble Head but then DelTweet scheduled their tweetup on the same day so it all worked out. Since Linus got a bobble head when he got there, he gets to play with it (until it gets broken I suppose).

Linus is not a Republican (as for as I know) or the media, but he sure plays rough with Joe. Like the Whitehouse sometimes, he is trying to stuff Joe back in the box.

Linus is not old enough to shave yet

More ridiculousness from the advertising world of yesterday. Also acts as another example of how not to parent properly. No razors for babies! I wonder if this was as ridiculous back then as it is now.

Harold and the Purple Crayon updated

The highligh text says FUN FACT: 'Harold and the Purple Crayon' was originally entitled 'Introduction to Differential Geometry for Kids'

I need to run out and get MATLAB for toddlers for Linus.

From the bad parenting department

I hope that the snake in this picture was well fed before the picture and not after.

Given that pythons like to squeeze and eat tiny mammals, I am not sure I would have put my baby mammal so close to one.

Linus helps with the storm door pneumatic closer.

Linus has discovered that the pins which hold the pneumatic closer on the storm door are easy enough for little fingers to take out. He can take both pins out and remove the closer, at which point he hands it to us to replace so that he can take it out again. I am working on teaching him to reinstall the closer. Then the game can be his and his alone. Do other children this age (18 months) do this? Or are we lucky?

Here is a video of his work.

He almost has it, all by himself, but he still wants me to fix it.

Biscuits tailored-made for Linus

Why should Linus have to make do with pieces of a giant grown-up sized biscuit when Lynn can make tailored-made Linus-sized ones instead?
