Tawzalt is in season and is at her peak of receptivity. It is tough for Zel to remain chaste and they are both wound a little tight. We took took the girls for a picnic and to get some new clothes for fall and brought Zel along and left Tawzalt to rest at home.

Zel was very happy to get some time out in the country side.

Snuggle

Cassandra in jams snuggles Tawzalt


My wife insisted that Tawzalt needed an inaugural bath. If I say that Tawzalt detests being bathed it is not true only because detest is not a sufficiently negative verb. She does quite enjoy being snuggled and comforted by my daughters afteward, though.

Remain Dignified

Remain Dignified

Azelouan is working hard to retain his dignity while Theodora giggles with Tawzalt poking her ear.

I heard this on NPR so it must be true:

“Sea kittens” is the new term being used by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, for the creatures they believe are in dire need of an image makeover: fish.

“PETA thought that by renaming fish sea kittens, compassionate people who would never dream of hurting a dog or a cat might extend that sympathy to fish, or sea kittens,” PETA campaign coordinator Ashley Byrne says.

My favorite part of this story is when NPR interviews a little girl about what she thinks of the “sea kittens” marketing campaign and the girl says, “They [PeTA] say that they are intelligent but they’re not really. They have tiny, tiny little brains. Tiny. Miniature…”

And story ends with this hilarious quote:

“It may raise some money for PETA but I don’t think it will change the way we manage the fisheries… I think I may eat some sea kittens tonight.”

Growing up too Quickly

December 11, 2008

My older daughter, Theodora lost her first tooth this afternoon. It’s been loose for about a week and today it came out “by itself” on the way home from school. Oy. This is all happening too fast.
