We inherited a ping-pong table. Max is ready.

if you ever wondered

why Max is so smart... it's because he knows where electricity was really discovered.

Church Date

We're not sure if Max and Ashley actually made it to church, but he sure was stylin'! This is the rest of his Sunday Best from Aunt Sharon.

more awards show fashion

it must be the shirt. Max's take on the suit with no tie? The tie with no suit. NB: Max makes these fashion decisions for himself. If you think Max would let Mama and Daddy wrangle him into a tie just for pictures, you haven't met him. Clearly, he is wary of suburban toddlers everywhere biting his style and didn't want me even documenting the outfit.

the joy of being 2

Max: Park. PARK!
Mama: You wanna go to the park, Max?
Max: NO!

One morning at preschool(okay,it was my birthday), I got a call from Max's teacher telling me that he had fallen and knocked his tooth back up into his gum. I ran to the school and found Max in tears, sitting in a circle with the other toddlers, getting no love from his teachers. That was the end of Max's preschool career. After some emergency dentistry (and demerol), Max's tooth is back in place, with the help of these baby braces. Now he's homeschooled and happier for it. But at least we know that, if he ever needs real braces, he'll still be cute!

M-A-X spells Max.

And Max will show you, dear readers, very soon, that he can read his name. He'll also show you his baby braces and why he's now a home-preschooler. Check back in a few days, pictures and video to follow.

budding scientist

Max's photoshop skills are improving daily. Doesn't it really look like he's vortexing a sample with Auntie Kawai? Of course, Safety Officer, it's just an illusion.
