Sunny Days and Geekery Galore

March 17th, 2013 by KellyJoe

Hello, hello, hello. Its been a bit since I’ve been in here and I do want to apologize. I attended a fun little shindig known as Drag queen bingo a couple not this last Friday but the one before that and unfortunately caught the cancerAids (a term known for what I also like to call the super-cold) from my friend who is constantly sick so I’ve been battling that off along with dealing with my double ear infection-ed/also sick/also teething baby. Its been a very busy while. So we haven’t done much in the way of actual sensory games but it has been so nice lately that we’ve been getting out and doing a lot. One day we went out and we cleared out our front garden of all the dead flowers and junk I let just sit there through the winter because I’m a bad homeowner (and I did have a young child I was still adjusting to having so gardening and yard work took a backseat to doing other things). Al as it turns out is a super helpful kid and thought raking was one of the funnest things ever. I’m hoping this trend continues into his teenage years cause I plan on becoming good at growing stuff which as we know results in a lot of yard work.


Besides that though, mostly we’ve just been walking basically everywhere and all the time like a champ in our baby chucks (converse). One of the best activities we managed to do while I was fighting off death was return to the duck park and actually feed ducks which I missed greatly and apparently so did Al since he joined the ducks in their meal of stale cheerios off the ground.



I guess its just how he does things ya know. Being one with nature and all that jazz. We went a second time too which is when we saw this pretty neat duck. I say its neat because its coloration is different than the normal mallard males that hang around and I’m thinking its got to be a mix of some sort. Its basically my new favorite duck.


I want to own that duck.

Anyway, as most of you know, I’m no stranger to the knowledge that my kid is hardcore and possibly one of the most fashionable dressers on the block. Sometimes I like to just take him out into the front yard and let him show the neighborhood how much better he is and being dressed than they are and also at riding a dino, because thats a pretty important skill in life.


You might as well admit right now you will never be that awesome. But right now I need you to mentally prepare yourself for these next few pictures. Just take a deep breathe and clear your mind. Ready?

Are you sure you’re ready?

I’m not sure you are.


All right here we go.

You asked for it.


BAM. Wasn’t expecting that were you. It just keeps getting awesome. (But for those non-geeky not in the know this is a cosplay of Link from the Legend of Zelda, you know.. that game I have a tattoo of my foot in honor of… the one I spent countless hours of my childhood [and adulthood] playing… that one that may one day engulf my entire leg and makes up like 50% of my shirt wardrobe… yeah) And thanks mom for making it :) I can’t wait for a more realistic version of it.





Not going to lie, having him dressed this way was a dream come true. My first thought when I found out I was having a boy (after Wait, is that right??) was “Oh, I can totally dress him up as Link!” and its always been my dream to have a kid as in love with those games as I am. So basically greatest time of my life ever. :)

Anyway, until next week then yeah?
