4 years ago today- the world gained Frazier.
And what an acquisition.
I asked him the other day if he was ready to go and he answered, "More or less." Which I found meant that he was dressed, but did not have on shoes. :)
On the subject of footwear, I've learned from Frazier that rubber boots? Go with anything. And your wardrobe, contrary to popular belief, is not weather dependent. Sweater in July? Swimsuit in February? Totally acceptable. And fire gear...can't be beat for any occasion.
We have a book called "But No Elephants" about a woman approached over and over by this man selling unusual pets. She takes each one he offers saying, "Very well, but no elephants." Of course, she ends up with an elephant, but anyway, one morning as we were discussing breakfast I suggested mini pancakes. "Very well," he told me. "But no elephants." Another time I insisted he try something and after much prodding he did so then smiled and said, "I do so like these, Mom! They are so good, so good you see!" Kid loves to be read to.
He's equally domestic and outdoorsy. He'll go from baking to playing football. Climb a tree, paint a picture. He's nothing if not well-rounded.
