[As transcribed by Daddy]

I woke up to find Mommy exercising in the living room - she worked out so hard that she almost destroyed herself. Despite this, the two of us managed to take the bus to the local market and cart home a load of apples (she's gotta make some pies for Becky's wedding on the weekend).

We had an early lunch and then took Basil to the vet - the other day he had some sort of seizure, so the vet gave him a thorough checkout. He seems fine, so we'll see what the test results say.

I had a pretty good day at school - we went to the library AND the gym today. On the way home, Mommy and I walked with my friend Cheyenne and her dad... we stopped at the flower store and got a flower and a little pumpkin. Once we got home, I drew an amazing picture of Superman and Batman and get this - I used foreshortening to depict Superman walking towards the viewer. My parents' minds are officially blown.

After Daddy came home from work, we went to the grocery store and bought a whole lot of popsicles!

Growly Flutterboard

[As transcribed by Daddy]

I slept alone in my bed all night - at no point did I join my folks in bed, which is rare (but welcome). It was pouring with rain and howling with wind outside - Mommy and I hid in the house from the crazy weather. In the afternoon it was time for school, so Mommy and I carefully made our way there... I wore my rainboots and got to splash in the puddles.

The only real news from school (I never mentioned that I did the Terry Fox Run last week) was that I growled at Mrs. Bartlett at one point. Mommy picked me up, we went home and did some baking and hallowe'en decorating, and then we went to my swim class!

I had a great time with the other kids at swimming, and got to use a flutterboard in the pool. Our neighbour from up the street gave Mommy and I a lift home - Daddy was late coming home from work (first day back from vacation, man), but once he was home, we played video games together.

The Case of the Missing Cinnamon Bunny

[As transcribed by Daddy]

The plan for today was to go apple picking, but after lunch - my parents graciously took me to the local Japanese restaurant for some sushi - Mommy wasn't feeling too good, so we canceled our apple-picking plans. We decided to try for a hike anyway - I slept on the way to the Greenwood Conservation Area, thankfully... I was one heck of a moody, wired, and crazy maniac today - and had a really nice afternoon, even if it was just a short trudge through the woods.

We had a nice drive home, and then went over to Lisa and Matt's house for a pizza dinner. I played a lot with Leo... it was fun for our folks to watch the two of us play hide & seek together. Leo and I even did some painting together! Lisa and Matt both ran the Toronto waterfront marathon this morning, so the idea that they could walk let alone entertain dinner guests was astounding.

When it was bedtime, I sent my folks on a wild goose chase looking all over the place for Cinnamon Bunny, who was lost. After ages of searching, they finally found him - stuffed in the freezer section of my toy refrigerator.

Prince Pippin III of Mexico

[As transcribed by Daddy]

We all slept in this morning! How awesome. Anyway, it was pretty gray and dreary outside... our lofty plans to take a fantastic walk in the woods was scuppered. However, we did manage to head down to the beaches after some lunch to run some errands. First off, I couldn't mind any of my toy cars, so we went to the toy store to buy some new ones. Daddy and I sat outside for a while on the curb and I told him the story of Prince Pippin III of Mexico (Just "Pip" to his friends).

We got caught in a light rainstorm after visiting the bookstore, and then it was off to the butcher's before heading home, where Daddy and I played cars and then a bunch of video games together.

Mommy made us a lovely dinner, I went over to Gammy and Grandpa's to visit some dinner guests of theirs, and then my folsk put me to bed. Let's hope the weather is better tomorrow.

Saturday, September 26, 2009


[As transcribed by Daddy]

Mommy and Daddy walked me to school this afternoon - I had a nice time playing in the gym, playing with all of my friends, and playing with toys and stuff. Pretty awesome! Grandpa joined my folks on the escort home, which was a nice surprise.

I played some video games with Daddy before the two of us went to the movies to catch a really awesome flick that we both really enjoyed and laughed at! I ate a big bag of popcorn and was really well behaved. Fun times!

When we got home, we found Mommy in the middle of a nap - it was getting late and I was pretty exhausted, so Daddy decided his best course of action given our grocery levels and his cooking abilities was to go out for Swiss Chalet (my request).

The two of us waited 20 minutes at the restaurant before we overheard that Swiss Chalet had run out of chicken. Can you believe that!? Thank goodness we found out, otherwise we might still be waiting. So... we got our money back and went to Pizza Pizza, where we got some food (and only had to wait 10 mins for it). I was fighting off sleep and bashed Daddy in the face a few times - we eventually brought our food home... Mommy was up by the time we got back, and helped us eat it before putting me to bed.

[As transcribed by Daddy]

I woke up this morning unable to speak! My coughing fits in the middle of the night resulted in a light case of laryngitis. After a few sips of herbal tea with honey, though, you could kinda hear what I was saying - in the cutest, squeakiest, raspiest little voice.

After lunch I was able to go back to school for the first time since I got sick over the weekend. I was happy to see my friends and play with them all again - we went to the gym, played some games there, and some new books magically appeared in my backpack when it was time to go home. Daddy had a great time walking me to school, while Mommy and Basil joined him to escort me home again.

While Mommy and Daddy ran some errands, I watched my Rudolph movie with Gammy, and then the two of us played video games. When my folks returned from their errands, we ate a lovely dinner, watched some television, and then it was off to bed - and for yet another night, I kept waking up due to coughing fits.

Coughing Fits

[As transcribed by Daddy]

Yup... still sick. I was up really early and full of energy, which meant I danced and partied and talked up a storm on my parents' bed, sending them elsewhere in the apartment to find sleep wherever they could get it. Daddy went and slept in MY bed.

After he woke up, we had a nice lunch and decided to get out of the house. Just because I was too froggy to go to school didin't mean I couldn't get out of the house, so Mommy and Daddy and I drove out to Georgian Bay and then went to a mall in Newmarket and did some looking around.

We headed home and had a pretty average evening - I had a pretty awesome bath before bed, which was interrupted by some extended periods of lengthy coughing fits - which kinda made my parents nervous and uncomfortable. I slept through them.

Being Sick Sucks

[As transcribed by Daddy]

Last night was tough. I tried to sleep with my parents, but my horrible cold kept me awake and fidgety... so nobody really slept very well. I woke up reeeaalllly early and hung out while my parents tried to sleep in - I even went and visited with my Grandparents and stuff. Unfortunately, my cold is even worse than it was before, so once again Mommy had to call school and tell them I wouldn't be in.

I was alternately adorable and tragically heartbreaking with my illness. My froggy voice and sore throat made me sound cute and vulnerable... for the first time in my life, I've realized that being sick really really really sucks. I was feeling so down and bored and miserable and ill that I spontaneously started crying when Mommy told me she couldn't automatically make it all better.

Daddy was out at an important interview today, so I vegged out on the couch and watched a movie, and really fought off sleep. we played a new video game when he came home, and then after dinner I nibbled on some dinner, some apple pie, and then had a nice bath before struggling to fall asleep again.

First Sick Day!

[As transcribed by Daddy]

I woke up really early with stuffed-up sinuses and an adorably froggy voice. I slept in Mommy and Daddy's bed last night due to the activity upstairs, banishing Daddy to the living room couch... once Mommy and I were up, we had a regular morning and didn't bother waking Daddy up. I was running a slight fever, so Mommy called the school and told them I wouldn't be in. My first ever sick day!

We all had a pretty easy day, and waited for it to rain outside. We watched TV, did a lot of snuggling, worked in my workbooks, read some books, and took a nice excursion to the bookstore, where we got some fun new books and a nice hot tea.

Mommy made us all a delicious chicken soup for dinner, but by then I was pretty tired and still sick. I went to bed a little bit early, which was nice.

Comings and Goings

[As transcribed by Daddy]

Dunno that I slept so well last night, because I was kinda out of sorts today. I had a nice morning with my family - I sat outside wearing my gnome hat & beard, and watched Jim play solitaire and stuff. Daddy and I drew some pictures together, and then we joined Mommy and Nana and Jim for lunch at Jawny Baker's down the street. The service was slow and I was a little moody, but the food was really great.

We walked home - I played with my parents on the front lawn, and then Nana and Daddy and Mommy and I drove to the outdoor mall to do some window shopping. We didn't stay long (it was busy!) but had a good time.

Then it was time for Nana and Jim to go home, which made me pretty miserable. I sat on the front lawn and pouted as they left. Daddy and I played video games to cheer me up - and then the Nixons arrived at Gammy and Grandpa's, so I drew pictures with them.

What with all the activity and comings and goings and noise upstairs and sleep difficulties and weather changes, I think my cold is getting worse. We'll see if I go to school tomorrow.

The Brampton Fall Fair

[As transcribed by Daddy]

Once we all had our lunch (once again, Mommy converted leftover Greek food into delicious Chinese food), Mommy and Daddy and Nana and Jim and I drove out to Brampton to attend their annual fall fair. Once we got there, we checked out the agricultural and artistic part - which was pretty miniscule, for an Ontario fair - and then grabbed some snacks and hit the midway rides!

I rode on the big swings, the merry-go-round, and a few other rides, including the big slide with Mommy (see photo). I played a few games, won some stuffed animals, and then we all took in a really awesome dog show... it was definately the highlight of the day, watching the dogs race, jump, dance, and run obstacles. We had a blast! Daddy got lots of great photos.

Before heading home, we took Nana and Jim to the Cheltenham Badlands. I didn't want to leave, and really wanted to take a hike, but it was too late in the day, much to my chagrin. We took a loooooong drive home and had a lovely dinner before bed.

A Tea Party with Nana

[As transcribed by Daddy]

I spent the better part of the morning with Mommy, Nana, and Jim - we had breakfast and lunch, sat around outside, played games and drew pictures and stuff. Daddy starts a 10-day-run of not having to be at work, which is awesome. He got to sleep in a bit and then draw some pictures with me.

Mommy and Daddy walked me to school today - I had another great day of crafting, playing inside and outside, snacking, and hearing nice stories. Mommy and Nana came to pick me up when I was all done, and then Nana and I had a little tea party in the afternoon. Jim even sat on the couch and watched children's television with me!

We all joined Gammy and Grandpa and Nee-Nee for a massive dinner of takeout Greek food, which was really good. After some lovely dessert, I was off to bed! Another full day accomplished.

Two Dollars and an Ostrich Egg

[As transcribed by Daddy]

This morning Mommy and I were cutting out and attaching new fall leaves onto the big tree painted on the wall in my bedroom when Nana and Jim arrived from Virginia! I was so happy and excited to see them - they even brought me a bunch of cool presents and a huge actual for real ostrich egg! I intend to hatch it.

I had kindergarten in the afternoon, which was a blast - we went to the gym again, and I was assigned my first-ever homework, which I'm actually extremely excited to do! On the way home from school, Nana bought me a scratch ticket. I won two dollars!

In the evening we all joined Gammy and Grandpa for a very very delicious dinner. Not only did I get completely covered in rib sauce, but I practically fell asleep (must've been all the excitement) midway through. A few hours after going to bed, however, my parents left the house to run some errands, only to find me crashed on the living room couch.

The Sound of Sniffles

[As transcribed by Daddy]

'twas a quiet day today - a silence interrupted by the sound of my sniffles, which I think I've finally caught from my ill father. I did some work in my workbooks, had a small lunch, and then went to school.

School is awesome - I've deemed it to by my very favourite thing. Today I made friends with a boy named Amarion and layed with my friend Clair a lot. We made another traffic light craft and were visited by Mr. Sheffle, who told us 'the questions'. I don't remember what the questions were, but they were important. We had a story about a monkey and learned about determining the date.

Afterwards, Mommy and I went to the drug store and I got a snack. Apparently, part of my brain went missing on the way, because I completely spaced on ever having eaten lunch and kept asking Mommy for my lunch.

I'm ridiculously excited that Nana is coming over tomorrow.

Talking Mommy into a Pumpkin

[As transcribed by Daddy]

Mommy and I went to the local farmer's market today - it was a pretty awesome visit, because (a) the sweet potato lady was selling gluten free muffins, (b) we ran into our friends Carol and Jacqueline, and (c) as soon as we got there a pumpkin caught my eye, and I talked Mommy into buying it. So, now we have a pumpkin!

Once we got home, I had lunch, got food all over myself, changed my wardrobe, and then went to kindergarten. Today we went to the gym, did some crafts, and went to the library - where I got to hear a story about a chicken.

Mommy and Gammy came and got me from school - as soon as we got home, I was, like, desperate for dinner. Daddy came home from work and I showed him all of the awesome robots I drew during the day.

A Carnation for being Cool

[As transcribed by Daddy]

Mommy and I had a nice morning... I was left to my own devices and played video games and with toys in my room and all that stuff. There were snacks, no television, and general good times.

Mommy walked me to school after lunch, and I marched right in there! I had a good day - we made traffic light crafts, and I believe I got to use glue for the very first time. That's kinda interesting. Afterwards, Mommy picked me up from the playground (where once again I'm having issues with boys who don't want to share the apparatus), and we went to the flower store, where I spontaneously launched into a lengthy monologue with the girl who works there. She thinks I'm cool, and gave me a carnation.

Once we got home, I finished an epic mural of a robot museum, as well as some other masterpieces. To say that I'm a good artist for a kid my age is a real understatement!

Seaton Trail XI

[As transcribed by Daddy]

Daddy was pretty fed up with being sick - despite not being better (not by a long shot), he resolved to get us all out of the house for a good chunk of the day, and he delivered on his intention. After a nice lunch of leftovers, we ran a few errands - Mommy replaced part of her broken sewing machine, we stopped by the bookstore (where we all got something to read), and then we drove over to our old hiking standby, the Seaton Trail.

Like I said, Daddy was still pretty sick, so we didn't push it too hard - but man oh man, there can't have been many more beautiful days than the one we had today. The temperature, light, scenery, and weather was perfect! The trail was pretty busy... seems like we weren't the only ones who found it really awesome. For some reason, we passed what appeared to be three unrelated poodles along the trail. I sang to them.

We had a really nice drive home, and then Mommy made some tempura for dinner. I watched some cartoons, swang on my swing, and went to bed a pretty happy kid (especially after Mommy repaired Cinnamon Bunny's leg).

Colouring Inside the Lines

[As transcribed by Daddy]

Well, I'm showing all signs of a full recovery - no more tummy problems, no intestinal pain or indigestion, no throwing up, and my voracious appetite has resurfaced.

Daddy, on the other hand, is not so lucky - and it completely affected our day. His cold - which he's been ignoring for the past week - hit him really hard today, and he may even have his recurring ear infection again. Mommy made sure he rested, though, and banished him to the couch. She pumped him full of Neo Cirtan until he passed out for several hours.

Once he woke up it was time for dinner, and then bedtime. All in all, I was a fantastic and wonderful kid despite being stuck at home on a lovely weekend. I coloured pictures Daddy drew for me (have I mentioned that my parents think I'm the best colourist in the world under the age of five?), I danced like a robot, I played video games, and hung out with Mommy.

It was the Best of Blog, it was the Worst of Blog

[As transcribed by Daddy]

...and today was my second-ever day of school. Once again, I had a really good time, and stuck pretty close to my friend Claire (and I even got to see my old friend Molly from swimming class). There were more crafts, a bigger class (I'm in a Junior Kindergarten / Senior Kindergarten split class, so today we had the whole batch assembled), more playing, and them some drama in the playground where this one kid wouldn't really share the playground equipment. I may have gotten pushed by a kid at some point as well. Aside from that, though - it was a great day.

Mommy and I made some really fancy cookies, watched a little bit of television, one of my DVDs, and played outside a little bit. Mommy made a pretty awesome meatloaf for dinner... which, unfortunately, I threw up all over Cinnamon Bunny in the middle of the night. He got a ride in the washer and dryer, I got to have a bath and then watch Daddy play video games before falling back to sleep.

I'll end with a quote - upon hearing yesterday's blog entry recited this morning, I commented "It was the best of blog, it was the worst of blog."

First Day of School!

[As transcribed by Daddy}

It was a pretty big day today... my very first day of school. After a nice, average morning (with the additional presence of Daddy, who took a vacation day from work to celebrate this special day and provide emotional support for Mommy), Mommy packed up my little dinosaur backpack, prepared me a snack, and walked with me over to the school for kindergarten!

I ran into my friend Clare from playschool and befriended some of the other kids in the schoolyard before school even started. We all lined up out in front of the school, and when the bell rang Mrs. Bartlett led us inside... and that was that!

My first day of school was fun. We made three crafts, went to the gym and played a game where we exercised and moved to some music, we played in the classroom with toys and stuff, and had a snack. If school is like this for the next twenty years - I am all in!

The rest of the day was good. My folks picked me up from school, and then Mommy went to the farmer's market, so Daddy and I stayed home and played inside and outside. After dinner, we went to the outdoor mall to do some book shopping. I can't wait to go back to kindergarten tomorrow!

Incidentally, John is my favourite Beatle.

09 / 09 / 09

[As transcribed by Daddy]

Yeah, so I start kindergarten tomorrow. To celebrate my last day as a pre-schooler, Mommy decided to take me out for a 'day on the town'. First off, we went out for a delicious rib dinner for lunch. Then, we took the subway downtown to use up our leftover free pass to the Museum.

Instead of heading right for the dinosaurs, we ended up checking out some of the other cool exhibits for once. Believe it or not, I saw a large statue of the Buddha that I liked, so Mommy took me on a tour through "China Stuff". Turns out I really like statues of the Buddha!

Obviously, before we left I saw the dinosaurs and the bat cave and did the dinosaur dig exhibit and all my usual favourites, including the new hall of biodiversity and a large aquarium. After we got home, I dunno if it was because I was tired, but I was a little bit cranky and difficult.

Daddy came home late from work (sick with a horrible cold and broke from blowing my college fund on Beatles-related items) just in time to say goodnight as I went to bed. I hope I can sleep - I sure am excited about tomorrow!

Pre-K Meeting

[As transcribed by Daddy]

Mommy seeded the back yard today, which really kinda perplexed me - how was I gonna walk to my swing, or the sandbox that I've only used, like, four times this year? Mommy tried to explain to me how to avoid all the muddy parts and not mess up the seeds, but I still ended up wandering into the house with muddy grass-seed-ridden shoes.

Mommy wasn't really up for playing with me today, which I was okay with... but when Daddy came home from work early with an illness closely resembling the flu and wasn't up for playing with me - well, THEN I was annoyed. What a ripoff.

My folks and I went over to the local school to have a pre-kindergarten meeting with Mrs. Bartlett, my soon-to-be-teacher. While they took notes and learned about the school, I played, and didn't really wanna leave. I even drew her a picture!

After dinner, we went and did the grocery shopping. Daddy was like a sick, achy, miserable grocery-buying zombie.

Tuesday, September 08, 2009


[As transcribed by Daddy]

Mommy made me some delicious pancakes for breakfast, and the two of us decided to let Daddy sleep in a little bit, since he's been up late either working or thinking / worrying about work for the past few days. Once he was up, we stopped by the drug store for groceries (it being the Labour Day holiday Monday, it was the only thing that was open), and Mommy made us ham and artichoke wraps - in the car - which we ate and got all over the upholstery.

We had a nice hike along an interesting chunk of the Bruce trail out in Kilbride, Ontario... on the way back to the car we played in a playground and stuff - it was nice.

We decided not to take the highway home, and took a nice, meandering drive through Milton, Mississauga, Etobicoke, and downtown Toronto. We came home, played video games, and looked at the many photos Daddy and Grandpa took over the past few days.

Crazy Talk

Crazy Talk
Originally uploaded by Clover_1
[As transcribed by Daddy]

Thankfully, I allowed my folks to sleep in a little bit today, and looked after myself for most of the morning (Daddy did make me the world's most massive bowl of Rice Krispies while half-asleep). Mommy felt a little 'off' again and wasn't up for making lunch, so we went to the local restaurant for some lunch. Immediately afterwards, we went to the bank and visited Old Navy - Mommy and I got some clothes.

After we got home, Grandpa and Daddy took me for a trip to the mall so that we could look for a specific pair of shoes Grandpa had his eye on. Daddy bought me some bubble tea, which was delicious.

After we got home, Daddy and I played some video games, played 'Bad Mitten' outside, and took some funny photos and videos where I made funny noises and faces (see above). Eventually, Mommy woke up from her nap and we had a nice late dinner. At bedtime, I was asleep deeply enough that my folks could take in a movie.

Red Wings Fan

[As transcribed by Daddy]

Mommy and Daddy and I made a quick run as soon as possible to the butcher's for some supplies this morning - but only after going to the Brickworks farmer's market, parking illegally, and then realizing we forgot to bring money.

In the afternoon, Daddy and I played video games - I beat Daddy at a game of Hockey when I played as my new favourite team, the Red Wings - and then Daddy and I played outside and went for a long walk to the drug store for some more odds and ends.

People started arriving for a nice birthday party for Daddy in the later afternoon... I got to see a whole big bunch of his work friends, and was glad to have their attention! I talked and talked and talked and talked and talked and talked! I talked all through dinner, through more video games, through some playing in my room with Kristin, and right up until bedtime. And even then, I didn't really go to bed - I just kept talking away in my room until I heard Kristin and Jim leave.

Putting Myself to Bed

[As transcribed by Daddy]

As soon as Daddy was up (Mommy and I let him sleep in a bit today, seeing as how he had the day off), we all drove to that healthy food market place, where Mommy got some baking materials and I got an awesome plastic spider from a vending machine. When we came home, we had some lunch, I played video games with Daddy, and then whined and complained for the rest of the afternoon while my folks tidied the house!

My folks finally managed to get me away from the television with a chance to play in the sprinkler, and then we all went for a nice walk to the drug store to pick up some odds, some ends, popsicles, and some chicken wings.

I got so messy from the chicken wings that I asked for a bath, and once I was out of the bath, I pretty much put myself to bed (even though it was, like, 45 minutes before my bedtime). Weird!

Day Camp 2009: Day Nine

[As transcribed by Daddy]

Well, today was the last day of Day Camp, which was kinda sad. Mommy sent me in there with cookies for everyone, so that was kinda awesome for one and all. I think I saw one kid steal another kid's glasses (or something), or so I claim.

Once that was all said and done, Mommy and I had a pretty dull afternoon. I played and hung out on my swing, and Mommy tidied and took it kinda easy. Meanwhile, Daddy (who had in interesting day at work) was held hostage by a brutal subway logjam, so I went with Gammy and Grandpa to pick him up form the office.

Once we got home, Mommy and Daddy and I went to a sushi restaurant for some dinner. Not only did I finish my entree before Daddy even got his appetizer - but I ate that and HIS entree, too! Then we did some shopping for video games and my very first Blu-Ray movie.

Day Camp 2009: Day Eight

[As transcribed by Daddy]

Yup... day camp was good. We made maracas out of water bottles (not unlike the ones I drew with 'Venezuelan Pumpkin Man'), but I think I brought home one that some other kid made, and not mine. Whatever, it's all good.

So, today is Daddy's birthday. Unfortunately for him, due to circumstances beyond his control, he had to stay late at work, AGAIN. None of us can really say he had a very happy birthday, actually. So, Mommy and I decided to cheer him up by bringing presents and birthday food to the office for him. He really seemed to appreciate it - and he loved the fact that Mommy blowtorched creme brulee in his office.

On the way home, I began a continuous stream-of-consciousness monologue that didn't end until we got home. I'm sure it must've entertained all the people on the subway and on the bus... but I was like a spastic, constantly moving, chatterbox of a lunatic!

Day Camp 2009: Day Seven

[As transcribed by Daddy]

It was off to Day Camp this morning, where I had another fun session of running, jumping, playing, snacking, crafting, and singing. They even opened the little pool up, and I got to go for a swim - even though the September chills have kinda set in a bit prematurely. I demonstrated to all the other kids how I can put my head underwater and hold my breath.

Mommy got to see Richard and Lucie today, which was nice - afterwards, she picked me up from Day Camp and brought me home. She was kinda tired and feeling a little 'off' - I helped take care of her and let her doze a bit. I made sure to bring her water to keep her hydrated.

After Daddy came home, we had ham sandwiches for dinner (he's been craving a ham sandwich for weeks, so since it's his birthday...) and then drove out to the outdoor mall to buy some books. I got to stay up past my bedtime! Woo!

Day Camp 2009: Day Six

[As transcribed by Daddy]

Yessir, it was back to day camp today! I had a great time... I played with some of the kids, befriended more counsellors, made one heck of an awesome necklace made of pasta for Mommy, had my snack, played some games, and sang songs. I was really hungry by the time I got home.

I had a nice, quiet afternoon with Mommy... I played and drew some amazingly awesome pictures while Mommy tidied and stuff. After Daddy came home from work, I drew this mind-blowing picture of an indignant-looking man with a jack o' lantern for a head and a Venezuelan outfit (complete with maracas) for a body. Daddy loves it!

We all went for a nice walk around the block... I rode my bike, but was having a hard time keeping my eyes forward. I just wanna talk and talk and talk!

But anyway, yeah - Venezuelan Pumpkin Man sure is awesome.

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!
