As I was struggling to push the way too small, and therefore overloaded and cumbersome stroller with Mark in it through the grass, Mark suddenly said: “Dad… you are noisy!” Ok, I may have been huffing and puffing a bit, but only because the lil’ bastard for once was too lazy to walk himself. I [...]

C: Awww… look at Mark, he’s snorring… So cute! C, later the same night: *Elbows Peter in the ribs* Shut up, you’re snorring!
Mark finally getting the rest of my ice after sending begging eyes it’s way for quite a while.
Went to the doctor with Mark the other day. He weren’t feeling well and complained about his stomach. When we entered the doctors office, Mark sat down. Looked at me, then the doctor. And without a sound he upped, took my car keys out of my pocket and headed out the door. Theres no fooling [...]

Is this my Michael Jackson moment? Ok – so I may not be the best dad ever….
Mark was pretty thirsty after running around for hours like an ant on speed. It was 30+ degrees celcius.
A headline that just invites to smartass replies, right? Caught your attention though, didn’t it? We have C’s sister and her 8 year old boy living with us since mid December. They are going home in 14 days or so, and it has been great having them here overall. C’s sister is a great help [...]
C at the market with Mark watching.

I would have stopped [...]

In between, what must have been nearly 2 very tough years and counting for us, there are many glimpses of light if you care to look for them. Mark is really growing up. He’s in good shape and a master of keeping us on our toes. Friday he’s attending a traditional Danish children’s party called [...]
In attempt to teach our kid some Chinese, C got hold of some VCDs with Chinese children’s songs. Actually calling them ‘Chinese’, may be overdoing it, since many of the melodies are oddly recognizable to me (like Jinglebells for one). Anyway, the lyrics are in Chinese, and that good enough for the purpose. Yesterday, as [...]
As promised in an older post, here’s the picture of one of the gifts we got for our boy. It’s a pair of “special” Chinese pants:
I could have sworn I’d be cold as freaking ice, but seems I’ve slowly morphed into your average pathetic parent. Today I watched Mark crawl for the first time and almost got all teary-eyed. Dammit! 1 day before his 7 month birthday the little bugger decided to crawl his first meter. And to reach what? [...]
