Little Miss Riding Hood

[As transcribed by Daddy]

This morning, I saw an ornamental basket sitting at the side of the room, and... ..well, let me explain it the way I explained it to Nana over the phone:

"I wanted to play Little Miss Riding Hood so I got my Riding Hood and put it on and got my basket and I put my play food in the basket and I went to Gammy's place but she wasn't there so I went home and then I tried again to take the basket to Gammy's house but she was gone again so Mommy had me write a note for her and I tok it with the goodies to Gammy's house then I came home but then I wanted the basket back so I went back to Gammy's to get it and brought it home but then I pretended that Cinnamon Bunny was Gammy and then the real Gammy came home so I went to visit Gammy and Grandpa and I brought them the basket of goodies and we played...."

Didja get all that? I also sang songs with Gammy and I upon hearing that Mommy was going to make Smores for dessert, I made my first (actually and intentionally funny) joke:

"I'm going to ask for S'more Smores!"

Going Out & Outgoing

[As transcribed by Daddy]

It was a cold one out there today, let me tell you. Early this morning, Mommy got be all bundled up and into the stroller, and off we headed for Playschool. I made some new friends when we were there, and had the usual good time... also as usual, I was the most outgoing and participatory kid of the pack. I'm too young to feel shy about singing really loud (and announcing "I PEED IN THE POTTY!" to the whole room).

Mommy and I came home and had a quiet afternoon - Mommy finished sewing me a pretty yellow dress, which I preferred to wear with my arms NOT poking through the arm-holes. I demanded many snacks.

After dinner, Daddy drove Mommy and I to Starbucks - I was asleep as soon as the car left the driveway. My parents knew what was good for them, though, and bought my customary Starbucks Yogurt in my place.

C-Lo loves J-Lo

[As transcribed by Daddy]

I was up and whiny at a pretty early hour - I chased Daddy out of bed and kept on whining until breakfast magically appeared in front of me. Works every time. I guess I didn't sleep so well last night, because I was kinda tired ad cranky all day - Mommy kept me distracted from my general discontent by playing fun games ('Simon Says', 'Follow The Leader', 'Airplane') and the like. My folks have to be careful with me on the computer - since I managed to somehow download a Jennifer Lopez Video torrent all on my lonesome, I'm being watched very carefully.

Mommy and I 'accidentally' had a nap this afternoon - Daddy came home from work to find us passed out in my room. As soon as he woke me, I started yammering - I suggested "Chinese Food" for dinner. We compromised with Mommy and went out for Thai food - we had the whole place to ourself, and I impressed the servers with my vocabulary, personality, and my OUTSIDE VOICE!

I Want Candy

[As transcribed by Daddy]

Mommy was in the middle of doing her pilates this morning, when I burst into the room sans pantalons, claiming to have successfully used the potty all on my lonesome. Mommy investigated, and the evidence was inconclusive - the potty seat was upside-down and practically in the toilet, but... whatever, I get the benefit of the doubt.

I really wanted to go out for Candy again today - Mommy walked with me to the corner store so we could buy some flowers, and while I was there I scrutinized every single little piece of candy in there. "Can I have this?" "What's this?" "is this candy?!" No luck for me, though.

I missed both Leslie and Nick today, and occasionally asked where they went after last night's party. It was another solitary evening for Mommy and I at dinner, seeing as how Daddy was stuck at work again.

Shy Around Nick

[As transcribed by Daddy]

Today primarily consisted of a massive cleanup effort throughout our house. Luckily, we had taken care of a good chunk of it over the past few days, which left just the living room and my bedroom. I didn't want to help my parents, mind you... tidying my toys only made me want to play with them. In any case, there were no bathroom-related mishaps - the 'ice cream prize' at the end of the day seems to do the trick.

After Daddy made me lunch, I went for a walk with my parents to the corner store to pick up some flowers and candy. I stumbled crossing the busy street with Daddy on the way home, and was more concerned with eating my candy than NOT sitting down in the middle of the road. Poor Daddy almost had a coronary getting me to the sidewalk. Drama!

Leslie came over for our annual Oscar shindig at the end of the day, which was awesome, because she always plays with me. Then Nick came over, and I got shy... for some reason, I decided that I didn't remember him and got nervous. Oh well. I waved goodbye to him before I went to bed, at least.

Ice Lullabyes

[As transcribed by Daddy]

...yeah, I know the above photo is several months old, but whatever - it's a good one.

I was up pretty early this morning - crawled into bed with my folks, made some noise, and then gave 'doctor's appointments' to all of my stuffed animals and threw them a picnic. Daddy joined me while Mommy did a lot of tidying - we worked on my potty skills and played some video games together, too.

We went to Jawny Baker's for lunch, which I enjoyed (I used a public bathroom!)... then we drove to the supermarket to take care of all of our grocery needs. Man, do I ever love looking at all of the pretty cakes in the bakery section.

Afterwards, Grandpa and Daddy took me for a nice walk around the (quickly thawing) block. I talked lovingly and sang lullabyes to several large chunks of ice along the way. It was fun!

Awful Quiche and Anemone Ice Cream

[As transcribed by Daddy]

Mommy admits to being pretty boring today. We didn't do much - just the usual, I guess. From about 7:30 a.m. to bedtime, I asked for nonstop snacks and meals.

One thing that was kinda nice was I helped Mommy sew some new curtains today. I sat on her lap and she took me through the whole 'sewing machine' process, which was interesting, I suppose.

For dinner, we thawed out the frozen quiche Daddy and I bought last weekend. I didn't like it much, but managed to eat my portion... meanwhile, Mommy and Daddy couldn't get through more than two bites. Anyone reading this blog, please heed our warning: DO NOT EAT THE FROZEN QUICHE FROM MEAT ON THE BEACH. We wholeheartedly endorse Meat On The Beach as a fantastic organic butcher... just... yeah.

I was great with the potty again, and was promised ice cream, so after the few bites of world's worst Quiche, Mommy and Daddy took me to Lick's for blue ice cream (that I thought was made from sea anemones, for some reason).

Back On The Wagon

[As transcribed by Daddy]

I'm very happy to report that I've hopped back onto the 'potty training wagon.' We made a lot of progress today - it was completely back to normal, as if none of my recent slip-ups had ever happened. To celebrate, Mommy took me out for grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch.

Once we came back, Mommy re-arranged the furniture in her bedroom while I hung out and played with stuff we moved in there - train sets, my house of balls, that sorta stuff. Mommy was so exhausted once she was done, I got to watch some television while she caught her breath.

Daddy was home from work at a normal hour for once (not that his most recent project is winding down-ish), and we played with toys in my room. Potstickers for dinner, which I surprisingly didn't seem to enjoy as much as ...cooked cabbage?!

When It Comes to Being Special, Grandson...

[As transcribed by Daddy]

I started off the day by peeing in my pants again. Rather than making Mommy mad, it just made her sad - she's ready to abandon underwear and just revert me to diapers. She figures by the time I'm in University, I'll have it all figured out.

We had a bit of a spat this morning, which led to me being sent to my room for throwing a tantrum... as a result, we didn't go to playschool. Once I calmed down, we went to the drug store for odds and ends - I saw a fun "When It Comes to being Special, Grandson..." card that I just HAD to buy for Daddy.

After passing a pizza place, I developed a strong craving for "Pizza with Macaroni". I called Daddy on the phone to tell him we had some, but, uh... ...I was making that part up.

I fell asleep before I could see the 'Clipse'.

When You Wish Upon An Eyelash

[As transcribed by Daddy]

After a full long weekend of no television or video games, I was back, baby! Interestingly, during the three-day-period, I asked to use the computer more often than I asked to watch television by a ratio of something like 20:1.

Mommy and I had a quiet morning - I was back to peeing in my pants, which caused some heated arguments throughout the day. At one point a real argument erupted - I was sent to my room, where I hung out and played (not exactly much of a punishment). Mommy came in to lay down the law, which led to tears on my part - Mommy has a hard time staying mad at me when I'm legitimately crying. I cried away an eyelash... Mommy told me that you can wish on eyelashes. I wished for ice cream, she wished I would pee in the potty... and we both got our wishes!

Daddy came home from late - I didn't have much time for him, though, and was much more interested in going to bed.

Caviar Pops In My Mouth

[As transcribed by Daddy]

Mommy was sick again for the third day in a row, pretty much. So much for our long weekend going out on a 'high' note. Ah well!

Once we were all up and breakfasted, Mommy and Daddy drove me out to Vaughan so that we could visit Ikea (at my request). Unfortunately, it was closed, which made me cry - we headed towards the other Ikea in OUR neighbourhood, thought to call Leslie, and drove over to pick her up.

We all went for a sushi lunch with the 50 bucks Daddy found lying on the ground yesterday (cha-ching!), and three major things happened. 1. The waitress gave Leslie's lunch to the people at the table next to us. 2. Before Daddy could stop me, I tried a huge blob of wasabi. No reaction whatsoever. My parents feared I'd fall into a coma. 3. I discovered the joy that is caviar, which I couldn't get enough of. I kept on exclaiming "Caviar Pops in my Mouth... like a balloon!"

We went to Ikea, which was so full of people it kinda wiped us all out (I left with a new beaver). We came home, Mommy collapsed on the couch, Leslie and I drew pictures, and Daddy did housework before taking Leslie home.

Daddy made me dinner and put me to bed while Mommy recovered from the smell of Daddy's cooking at the other side of the house.

Not Potty Time

[As transcribed by Daddy]

Mommy wasn't feeling too great today - she managed to get through her Pilates routine, but was incapacitated with tummy problems immediately after. Daddy made us all some breakfast, did a lot of tidying, and then decided to let Mommy have the morning off and took me grocery shopping!

Gammy joined us on our trip through the slush and ice, and helped Daddy manage both me and getting all the correct groceries. We all went to the Butcher and Starbucks before heading home, where I had some lunch and played "keep the balloon off the ground" with Mommy while Daddy shoveled all the wet, heavy snow around the house and drove off to sell some CDs.

Gammy and Grandpa prepared a lovely dinner for Mommy and Daddy and I, so we all had a nice meal around their new dining room table. I quickly went to bed after a day of peeing my pants (three or four times) rather than using the potty for some reason.

The Balloon Vulture Incident

[As transcribed by Daddy]

This morning it was quickly decided by Mommy and Daddy that we would give Nee-Nee a ride up North to Muskoka to visit her family ad save her the bus fare, and probably hit the big Snowball Festival in the meantime. The drive up was pretty quick (I napped on the way)... we were extremely happy to see and visit with Aunt Wendy and "Aunt Rodger", who fed us and lent me a bunch of toys to play with.

In the afternoon, Mommy and Daddy and I went over to the carnival, just in time to catch the last few minutes of it. We went on a hayride, met up with a family friend, and found a guy in the rec centre making balloon animals. We stood in the crowd of kids watching the guy make some pretty complicated stuff - I somehow managed to win the most complicated one (a balloon vulture) when "I" was able (in tandem with my Mommy, of course) to guess what it was he was making after 15 minutes of fruitless guesses by those already present. The crowd of kids and their parents seemed pretty let down and somewhat surly... we gout out of there, vulture in hand, before it could turn ugly. Pretty funny!

I did some quick tobogganing with Daddy back at the Nixons' (didn't care for it), and we all finished out visit and had a lovely dinner. What a nice day! The drive home was equally fast - I slept through the whole thing. Once we got home, getting me back to sleep was a real fight. As of midnight, I was finally asleep again.

[As transcribed by Daddy]

Mommy and I made our weekly visit to Julie and Sarah's - we tried to take the sleigh, but the wind in my face was so cold and sharp that it was making me cry. Luckily, Grandpa drove by in the nick of time and gave us a ride the rest of the way. We had a nice visit, but it became fairly obvious to everyone that I wasn't feeling well - I barely ate any food, plus I had several... shall we say... 'diaper emergencies'.

I found a neat icicle on Gammy's car and brought it to her to keep... I was so exhausted that I had a nice afternoon nap with Mommy. As a result, I was up a little later than usual after dinner, but whatever. I got to watch my new DVD from Nana in the afternoon, and I got to read my new books with my parents.

Have I mentioned my new love for Emoticons in Instant Messenger? Over the past few days I've had long, rambling, IM Conversations with Daddy and Cool Uncle Gareth. I always remember to include emoticons

Marshmallows and Spagaragus

[As transcribed by Daddy]

Mommy and I spent the bulk of the day baking goodies for Valentine's Day. We made really really really pink cupcakes, homemade chocolate-dipped heart-shaped marshmallows, and that kinda stuff. It took all morning, and all I wanted to do was EAT the stuff, but it went by pretty quickly!

After lunch, we delivered some of the goodies to my Grandparents. We also gave them the Valentines I made, and they gave me ones they made - I took them downstairs and tacked them onto the refrigerator in my play-kitchen. Valentine's Day is awesome (doesn't hold a candle to Hallowe'en in my book, though).

Daddy came home from work late again, but he brought flowers, books for me, and a stuffed elephant ...who I named 'Marshmallow'. Delicious "spagaragus" for dinner.

The Cheese Stands Alone

[As transcribed by Daddy]

This morning it was finally time for Play-School - Mommy loaded me onto my sled and pulled me the whole way in the deep, thick, frozen snow. Man, it was tough out there - and I kinda gave Mommy a hard time for not running the whole way.

Play-School was good - I led the group (only three kids and their Mommies showed up) n singing, dancing, and arts and crafts. You know me - the life of the party! Afterwards, I went back to whining at Mommy to run faster as she pulled me in my sled over to Richard and Lucie's studio. We had a nice visit - I haven't seen Lucie in ages. I used the potty there, too... I liked their bathroom, because it had a bear in it.

Mommy was exhausted when she pulled me home. We had a quiet afternoon, telling jokes, reading books, and singing songs. "The Farmer In The Dell" is a big fave - the line about 'the cheese standing alone' really cracks me up. Daddy was home late from work again, but I stayed up and waited for him.

Kellie's Birthday

[As transcribed by Daddy]

Today was the day of my parents' friend Kellie's birthday - man oh man, was I ever jazzed for the party. All day long, I kept asking about the party, eager to eat cake and sing happy birthday and stuff. Mommy and I had a quiet day - we made Kellie's birthday present, drew pictures, played on the computer, and made a tent our of furniture and blankets and stuff. The usual shenanigans. Last night I kinda burned my hand on some hot lasagna, and now it seems every time I eat lasagna, I convince myself that I somehow burned myself on it.

A snowstorm hit late in the afternoon - Mommy and Grandpa and I managed to take Basil to his vet's appointment anyway. Turns out Basil has a [very expensive] uncer on his eyeball. I wasn't there when the doctor held him down and shoved cotton swabs in his eyes - I was mercifully playing in the waiting room.

As the snowstorm got worse, we realized that it wasn't going to be possible to make it out to Kellie's birthday party. To prevent me from being too let down, Daddy braved the winter storm (on foot) and got a birthday cake for me to eat - but by then I was so exhausted from all the buildup that I asked to go to bed.

The Naughty Scribbler

[As transcribed by Daddy]

So this morning Mommy is kinda dozing on the couch, when suddenly she hears the sound of scribbling on the table. She turns and looks, and there I am, furiously scribbling away on the table countertop with a red marker. "HEY!", she yells, only I ignore her and continue to scribble. "HEY!" She yells again, this time much more forcefully. Still nothing. "HEY CLOVER!" Again, no reaction. "CLOVER, STOP IT!" I incredulously turn around. "Whaaat?!" "Stop scribbling on the table! It's very naughty!" I pause, and consider her demands. They make no sense as far as I can tell, so I give her a dirty look and returned to scribbling.

Basil's eyes seem to be bothering him - his left one especially has been kinda red, irritated, and twitchy. We're gonna take him to the vet tomorrow, but in the meantime we can't decide if we're gonna nickname him "Winky" or "Squinty".

It was too cold to do anything outside today (despite my pleas to make a snowman), so I stayed inside and drew pictures, called Daddy at work, hung out with Mommy, and peed in the potty like, twenty times.

Tyrannosauratops Clover

[As transcribed by Daddy]

Mommy made Pumpkin Pancakes for breakfast - I vowed to eat enough to grow up big and strong and to become a dinosaur called the 'Tyrannosauratops Clover". What an imagination.

Before lunch, I hung out with my grandparents while Mommy and Daddy ran some errands in the freezing cold. After lunch, we were all feeling a little cooped up by the weather, and decided to go for a nice drive. We dned up all the way out in Belfountain, stopped to get a cookie, turned aolund, and came home. I behaved like something of a 'Tyrannosauratops Clover' in the car on the drive.

I played video games before and after dinner - it's becoming evident to everyone around me that the television is becoming far less interesting to me than the computer.

Another New Friend

[As transcribed by Daddy]

A very very special welcome to Emma Rinkinen, born to proud parents Juha and Samantha yesterday. Congrats Mommy, Daddy, and new baby! Hopefully, we can get photos up soon.

I was up early, and dragged Daddy out of bed to put on my new DVD (he went back to sleep on the couch). After he woke up again and made me some breakfast, Mommy got the show on the road, and we went for a shopping trip in the snow and slush for new panties for me. We drove all over the place before finally finding the perfect set of Hello Kitty underpants. Cute!

Next up we did the grocery shopping - I was a little whiny, and let's just say that Daddy doesn't recommend supermarket parking lots in a snowstorm... but we all managed to get through it in one piece.

We came home, I threw a tea party for my folks, visited with my Grandparents, and had a nice, quiet evening. Sorta watched a dinosaur movie. Had a bath. Nuthin' too major.

Don't Be a Baby

[As transcribed by Daddy]

Last night I woke up at about 2:00 am, realized I had to pee, and went all on my own in the potty, and then woke up my folks to tell them.

This morning Mommy and I headed out in the slush to the bus stop. I had a snowball who I named 'Mimi', and on the way I regailed her with many stories. Mommy told me I couldn't take Mimi onto the bus once it came, so... I ate Mimi.

We went to Fabricland and to the mall - I was well behaved, and didn't wear a diaper the whole time (Mommy's pretty brave!). We got some food and stopped briefly at Julie & Sarah's place, where we dropped off some presents, treats, played for a few minutes, and left - Sarah was sick & snoozing, so we couldn't stick around too long. Once we got home, Mommy developed a debilitating headache.

After dinner, Daddy took me or a drive to Best Buy and HMV and Starbucks and stuff (partly to give Mommy a break and party to buy me something, but mostly just to hang out) - we had great conversations, bought some stuff, and enjoyed each other's company. He hurt his finger on my car seat buckle and - I told him not to cry - "Don't be a Baby, Daddy."

Frankenfrankie Jellyhead

[As transcribed by Daddy]

So... Mommy was doing Pilates today, when I suddenly appeared in the room sans pantalons and informed her that I had peed in the potty all by myself. Is that an amazing development, or what? My parents are so proud! To top myself, I did it again - all by myself - again later in the day.

Mommy and I played outside in the snow, painted with fingerpaints, made some pumpkin bread, and made valentines, which was a whole lot of fun. I cut out paper, drew faces on things... you know the deal. We got really crafty. Late in the afternoon, Mommy and I played video games together for soooo long that I ended up having my computer and television privileges revoked for the rest of the day.

I had a nice long chat with Nana on the phone, too, and got a package from Aunt Marion in the mail - she sent me a teddy bear, which I creatively named "Frankenfrankie Jellyhead.'

All Over the Net

[As transcribed by Daddy]

Guess what?! More snow! Mommy and I braved the storm and walked over to playschool this morning, only to discover that there was only one other mother/kid combo as courageous as us. I played fairly well with said kid, and on several occasions announced in a booming voice "Ladies and Gentlemen, Its time for my Puppet Show!"... only there was never any follow-through.

Mommy and I stopped for lunch on the way home, and had a quiet afternoon - at one point I got in my sleigh and went for a pull outside in the snow, but only made it halfway next door before I asked to go home.

I also had several accidents re: potty training today. Hopefully it wasn't too much of a major setback (I mean, I DID manage to use the potty at playschool)... but it really looks like we need to buy more panties.

In the meantime, Daddy set up Flickr Stats reporting on our account - apparently more than 70% of people who view those images haven't even been to this blog. Crazy! Especially funny were the weird, surprising, and unexpected referrals. Apparently, I'm all over the net.

Talking Milkshakes

[As transcribed by Daddy]

The weather sure is weird. All the snow we got over the weekend is melting like nuts as the temperature rises and rises - everything outside is squishy and slushy. Mommy and I decided to go check it out - we took the dog for a walk around the neighbourhood, and I asked to hold his leash. It was cute... we'll have to try to get a picture of that.

I hung out at home, played with Mommy and my games and toys and stuff. At one point I stared at my reflection and said:

"Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the best Clover of them all? ...Me.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the best Clover of them all? ...Me, again!"

Daddy was home from work kinda late, but I got to stay up to wait for him. I wasn't really up for going to bed - until Mommy suggested that I could potentially have cool dreams. For some reason, the idea of dreaming about talking milkshakes (!?!) made me want to go to bed.

Stinky Sewage

[As transcribed by Daddy]

How to explain this... uh... we all woke up to discover that our plumbing was all screwed up. Anything in the entire house that went down any drain came back up in our bathtub. I won't paint you a picture, but... you get the idea. So... the bathroom was off-limits today.

Grandpa was home from las Vegas today - he brought me a tiger-striped rubber duckie as a souvenier, which is sweet and special because he and I like to look at rubber duckies on the computer.

Mommy wasn't feeling well this morning and for most of the afternoon, but she got her second wind in the afternoon, and she tidied the apartment like a pro and made a cheesecake! The plumber came over and fixed the house's pipes, and then Leslie joined us all for dinner. Hopefully, tomorrow I'll get to try that cheesecake.

Mush! Mush!

[As transcribed by Daddy]

I woke Daddy up this morning by standing next to him as he slept and banged a frying pan with a spoon.

After homemade oatmeal for breakfast, Mommy and Daddy and I went out and bought a fancy new sleigh (one that fits my growing stature). We did some shopping at the butcher's, and then came home for a quick lunch before heading out once more for York Regional Forest with Basil.

Mommy and Daddy took turns pulling me through the forest on my sleigh - before we knew it, an hour had quickly passed, and my poor parents were huffing and puffing and exhausted. I tried to make them actually run and pull be along, but they're both wimps. Mommy and Basil passed out in the car, while Daddy and I stayed behind and played in the snow for a while. We had fun.

After we got home, Mommy collapsed on the couch (headache) while Daddy and I played video games - which got me extremely excited. I was so animated and into it that we kinda had to call it off and have dinner.

All-in-all, it was a nice close to a great weekend where I got to spend a lot of quality one-on-one time with Daddy.

[As transcribed by Daddy]

Mommy had her book club meeting with Leslie and co. today, so it was just me and Daddy this morning and for part of the afternoon. We kept busy by going to the toy store - Daddy owed me a present since I've been so awesome with the potty training the past few days. We spent an hour at the store, checkin' it all out, playing with stuff. I chose a set of plastic pots and pans, plus I bought a cute little toy for Leslie.

Daddy and I drove out to Weston (on the way, I accused him of being silly and ridiculous (which came out "Dickaless"), and had a nice chat along the way before going to Leslie's to hang out, eat some lunch, and pick up Mommy. I played with Leslie's stuff and came home again with my folks - next up was grocery shopping. That place was a zoo! Somehow, we got in and out pretty fast.

At the end of the day, I enjoyed a nice dinner, and then Daddy helped me on the potty and read to me before bed. The days where it's just him & I are rare, but very special.

Ham Sambwitty

[As transcribed by Daddy]

We got pelted with snow last night (and it kept a-comin' all day long), and it was up to Mommy and I to shovel the driveway and sidewalk and paths and stuff. So, we got to work - Mommy shoveled and shoveled, while I sat around, played in the snow, and complained about the snow.

Later in the afternoon, duty called - we had to head out there again. This time we brought Gammy along... Mommy shoveled and shoveled, Gammy shoveled and helped cars in the street get unstuck, and I threw snowballs at everyone.

We hit an ever-so-slight potty training setback when I accidentally peed on the couch. No problem, though - we cleaned the couch, laundered the futon cover (and accumulated enough dog hair to make a second pet), and I asked for a 'Ham Sambwitty' for dinner. This made me laugh uproariously. So uproarious that I didn't fall asleep until ten in the evening.

Restaurant Potty

[As transcribed by Daddy]

Mommy and I had a decent day - I played a lot of video games, watched some television, and most importantly, I wore underpants all day without any accidents. I used the potty and everything - everyone is so proud of me. The potty training is going quite well!

Mommy and I went on a lunch date today, and got a bite to eat at a restaurant full of TVs that were playing weird lumberjack sports shows. I kept asking "Why is that man hitting that log?", and at one point I even asked to use the potty at the restaurant!

Later in the day, Gammy joined us all for dinner before she and my parents watched their long-awaited TV show I was in bed well in advance, so as to not disturb them.

I'm a happy kid living with my parents and our dog in Toronto. I'm goofy, sweet, smart, extremely chatty, and pretty much the cutest kid on the face of the Earth!
