lizardek's obiter dictum lizardek Home Now Then Friends Info Ek Family
zird is the word [userpic]
I thought about writing a big ol ranty rant but, no.

I thought about writing a scholarly treatise on a subject about which I know much and you know little, just to enlighten the world a little bit but, no.

I thought about writing a zany, knee-slappingly funny anecdote (true story! WAHAHAHA!) but, no.

I was going to give you a blow-by-blow account of how my day went from a bad start to a crazy center, gooey like a cream-filled chocolate, only not nearly as good, to movingatthespeedoflight to crisis center action to okay I can't do anything about this until tomorrow morning when the guy who knows how to fix it might be at work but, alas, no.

I was going to tell the truth about one of my deep, dark secrets but well, no.

I was going to regale you with the moving and tender account of my baby girl's very first day at school, but since she told me I could go after 5

Why, you ask? Why, oh WHY, would I not be able to write about any of these things?


First Day of School (ever) for Karin and First Day of 2nd Grade for Martin

*Although, not miniscule in how much the person or persons represented in this pixelated simulacrum MEAN to me, just in the noteworthiness of this otherwise unsubstantial and sub-standard journal entry which I am perfectly aware, if otherwise unrepentant, is the equivalent of phoning it in. I pray your forgiveness. And will someone PLEASE tell me how to get Martin to stop making that goofball face when he's being photographed?

And, how did Karin like her first day at school!?

They had a good day. The whole school was out playing games and getting to know each other. They had a perfect day for being outside :)

Tell him when he does that face, he looks just like a girl! That should nip that in the bud.

But a cute girl! A darling girl :) And come to think of it, I'm not so sure that WOULD work. :P

your kids are fantastically cute!

but ooooh... i wanted to know your deep, dark secret!! :-)


First ever day of school is a completely noteworthy entry. I love how Karin always looks like she's ready to take on the world. That girl will be a senator or something when she grows up.

That, or the World Land Speed Record Holder. :)

Those darn rabbits eat a lot of peoples brains. Kongrats to karin on her first day of school!

They are mighty hungry bunnies, for sure :D

First, your children are spectacularly beautiful.

Second, I was TRANSFIXED by your painting! I could have watched for hours...

Thank you! :)

Thank you :) They ARE pretty darn cute some days. :P

And that Artpad site ROCKS!

I agree with the artpad thing. What a great way to express it... :)

All pictures of my brother at the same age bear the same face. Just remember that you can use them to embarrass him later in life.

Really? So it's a universal 7-year-old boy thing? That's a relief!

I don't know how much longer you can keep up claiming that rabbits ate your brain because I have had news from their union and there is not a lot left to nibble on now! ;oP hehehe.

Cute drawing. For a moment I thought that I was looking at what would become quite an obscene masterpiece. Of course that says more about me than about you. ;o)

Get him to say banana (or the Swedish equivalent) as you are taking the picture. They can't resist smiling at the idea of a fruit (dairy products are just so passe), and it is difficult to pull a funny face when saying something ;)

good advice! thanks :)

your kids are so awesome....even if one of them makes funny faces ;)

It's been said before, and it will be said again, but Lizardek, you have such cute kids!

Glad to hear the Karin embraced her first day of school in her usual cool as a cat fashion. Martin certainly looks like he was looking forward to returning.

I'm slowly getting nervous for my first day. What a responsibility to have kindergarteners for their absolute first day of school! Yikes, can't think about that too much. Let's just hope they're all as relaxed about it as Karin.

You're going to do awesome! The kids are going to love you. I'm not so sure about Stephen's teacher this year, but we'll see.... :P

lol...loved the drawing.

MAN, you could never deny those kids as they yell "mommy" in a store. They look just like you! No running and hiding;)

It's true. They're both Mini-Me's...although Karin is a Mini-Anders too :)


Congrats to Karin! How was her first day?? As for Martin's faces...even I, a childless one, know that there is nothing you can do to make him stop that. :) Loved your drawing. Personally, I went with a variation on #4...imagine having rabbits eat your brain...only to discover that you don't even have adorable children you can write about. :) ~Marilyn

haha You got me with the painting. :) I like Martin's goofball face! Wouldn't mind seeing it more often. ;)

You know, you can actually phone it in nowadays. But thanks for taking the time to write and include the artpad and the picture of the first day of school.
