What can I say for myself right now? Hugo’s almost a year and a half now and is pretty amazing. He’s right into growling at things he identifies as scary. He doesn’t always get it right though, which makes me laugh. Like yesterday he growled back at a rather harmless and sad looking stuffed penguin that another child had left abandoned in our local parkette. Anyway, we’ve got another quick surf trip on the horizon, which should get me feeling more human after a beautiful but brutally-windless early autumn in Southern Ontario.
