Los Angeles, California: By now you are realizing why I only come down to Los Angeles for a few days at a time. It is difficult to keep up with Lisa and her brood. I am sure my schedule was just as busy when I had a toddler, but when I had a toddler I wasn't even 30 years old. (Not to mention, I only had one child and we lived overseas and had full-time live-in help.)Breakfast with Leo: a busy day for him as it was a "water day" at pre-school. Instead of regular class, the kids get to play on water slides, kiddy pools, slip-n-slides and other assorted non-drought-friendly apparati. I packed his lunch today - leftover pizza, cucumber slices and a ton of grapes. He ate it all. Breakfast with Lucy: prune and kale pancakes with fresh avocado. Lucy loves food, but will not take anything on a spoon - finger foods only - and still will not take a bottle. Momma only. Is there anything more precious than a sleeping baby?
Leo went to school. Lenny went to work. Lucy took a nap. Lisa went to the gym. Bubbe took a shower.
Before Lisa and I fetched Leo from school, we had lunch at a new falafel place in Atwater Village - Dune. Crazy good. Simple menu. Falafel or lamb. A few sides.
Dinner was (take-out) sushi from a local Japanese restaurant. Lisa teases that Lucy is a "garbage disposal" but tonight she ate an entire (peeled) nectarine, about twenty (quartered) grapes, 2 avocado rolls, 2 cucumber rolls and a scrambled egg. Her brother had a few pieces of edamame and two avocado rolls.
Until my next update, I remain, your busy correspondent.
