A heat wave

So we’ve resurfaced from our life at home being ill, and can manage to make it out and about town to do shopping again.  We’ve had a few days break from school for the Labor Day holiday (5/1), and today went out for some dumplings to celebrate feeling better.

We dressed Leo in one of his usual outfits, head to toe, knowing that he’d fall under scrutiny by all the Chinese women we met along our walk.   When we got to the dumpling eatery, the waitress promptly came up and said ‘He’s too hot,’ and rolled Leo’s socks down.  We were momentarily stunned.  After months of being told ‘He’s too cold, he’s too cold,’ we didn’t know what to make of this new critique.  We did realize that it was 85 degrees today, but we didn’t assume that was warm enough to escape a full layer of clothing for Leo!  Summer is here!

    Hey guys!

    Glad to hear you are doing well. Sorry to hear about the bout of illness, but great news about Leo emerging strength. Have you seen the Olympic torch? Sorry I have been out of touch lately.

    I’ll be thinking about you during finals.

    God bless

    Good rule of thumb for assessing suitability of baby’s outfit—even when sleeping and at home–check for comfort level under the collar under the hairline at the back of his/her head—if not all sweaty, chances are the baby is comfortable—-if wet with perspiration, probably time to remove a layer or two of clothing. Cotton “breathes” (at least from my limited, personal experience in the “Mom” department) and sometimes, synthetics can be uncomfortable, as I’m sure you already know that from the way you dress yourself. Our children tend to survive our solicitous parenting, even when we keep guardian angels busy.
    Here in Wisconsin, we would love some of that summer weather—we had snow covered daffodils for an afternoon one day just last week.
    Joke—If April showers bring May flowers, what do May flowers bring? Pilgrims, of course! You knew that. (Compliments of your fifth grade nephew)
