Have I used this blog title already? Poor not-so-little Kale; totally suffering from second baby syndrome. Meaning, this is the latest picture I have of him. And it's about a month old (the red cheeks are gone now, Mom. I think it was my crazy dairy intaking). That's more than 1/6th of his lifetime! So, to make it up to him when he's in therapy for the lack of evidence of his fleeting youth captured on film, wondering out loud if he's been adopted because, in truth he secretly wants to marry his big sister (that's what Edie predicts anyway), I can say, "hey, kiddo. I built an empire around your name. Don't you feel the love reading your name on practically every woman's unmentionables in the Northern Hemisphere (ala Calvin Klein)?" And he'll say yes "yes, Mummy" in that cute little English accent we're busy imprinting on him these days.
Oh yeah, that ottoman is squarly snugged up to the sectional up there. Little guy loves rolling around and around like a little weeble wooble. Loved the name suggestions, thank you everyone! I was so tempted to go with a French one like one of my favourite wool shops, Laine Zin Zin - just sounds so Euro-sassy. And the punk band name that never happened - that meant Squat to me. No, seriously, our band was going to be called Squat - remember Donna? So I decided shop number two will be called While Jupiter Dreams - because like the winner of this contest suggested, let's have an ode to Jove. Congrats Calynde for the seed planting and thus being the winner - a scarflette is off to you (send me your addy). Hang on, here's the long winded story again; We were this close to naming Kale Kale Jupiter but then discovered that Jove is another name for this planet. Decided to go with Jove because it's all like Love with a "J" and perhaps a touch corporate-friendlier lest he decides to rebel and work for the man. I like the sound of While Jupiter Dreams. Things I whip up while my Big Gaseous Planet of Love takes his naps. Best go reserve it now - sure the name's in hot demand. Though I should run it by the man first (but he's kind of out of commission due to a stag) before I committ to anything. Whatever it's called - due to open in July - stay tuned!
