blogging is going to be light over the next couple of weeks as i have some offline commitments that are taking up my attention. one of these reminds me how delightful toddlers can be - especially when they belong to someone else and you get all the joy of playing with them without the responsibility of doing all the caring work.
at around 18 months, when they are learning new words everyday and learning to string words together to communicate. and it's interesting how even a two word sentence without verbs can convey a whole heap of meaning. also that they are so full of joy and very simple things can make them laugh. did i mention before that the sound of a baby laughing is about the sweetest sound in the world? yeah, i think i did.
so while there are a lot of serious and concerning things going on, including the inexorable sounds of the drumbeats of war against iran, i'm going to take a bit of a break from it all.
