Max and Miles who, to Me, Will Always be Secretly Named "Gus"

The blog about Max and his little brother, Miles. Stunningly cute boys and future leaders of the rebel forces.

Fluid Dynamics, Grandpa? I Know All About It.

Grandparents TR and Syl wanted to see Max one last time before they expose themselves to the H5N1 virus in China. Don't forget your masks, guys!

Each new grandparent proved to be wonderfully adept at getting Max to calm down.

Sylvia talked to Max about how beautiful he was and not to be upset because the world is full of so many wonderful shopping opportunities and he'll look good in just about everything. This made Max pretty happy until he realized his parents were artist-types and he would probably be an artist-type and that would make his "shopping" more like "looking". Welcome, Max, to the vagaries of Capitalism! Hey, it beats waiting in line for diapers, buddy.

TR took over and soothed Max by reading to him from this wild book all about everything you've ever wanted to know about pumps and fluids and the physics behin. . . . ZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzZZ. . . . Sorry! Where was I? Oh, yes, fluid handling. Interestingly enough, the book works on children of all ages!

It was nice to watch TR and Syl go all ga-ga over the kid. Also, it was nice not to have to do the crazy "fim-fam" dance for one evening. Posted by Picasa
