Happy Daddy

I'm a very proud daddy this week. My seven-year-old daughter asked if she could watch a DVD "for grownups". Once my heart had started again, I showed her Buster Keaton's Steamboat Bill Jr -- and she loved it. And my four-year-old son has been getting me to make pencil sketches for him to trace over for the past few days, essentially so he can practise inking; he calls it "tracing", but that's effectively what he's doing. So, yay kids! I've posted this picture once before, but I thought it deserved a return engagement.


  1. My 5 year old has no interest in drawing whatsoever. I feel like a failure...


  2. You let her get to seven years old before you showed her some Buster Keaton? I'm calling social services.

  3. Well, I tried to force Laurel and Hardy on her when she was younger and she wasn't keen. But this time she's the one who asked for it, which makes a difference.

  4. Seven?!? Four?!?'s been entirely too long since we've seen all of you. Thomas was just a twinkle in his mother's eye and Tamsin was toddling around our apartment and babbling in Franglais the last time we saw all of you.


Due to excessive spamming, I've reluctantly had to activate Comment Moderation on this blog. Please leave a comment and I'll get to it ASAP.
