I’m heading to Prague and Wolfie is beat boxing.

Hello my friends. Oh. Mah. Gawd. In less than 24 hours this girl is headin’ to PRAGUE. So excited. The good news is, I’m traveling for a work trip (which means we have a posh flight and get to stay in a schmancy hotel) but the bad news is, I will miss my guys terribly.

I have a little ritual when I travel…at night before going to bed I watch little video clips of Wolfie just being his cute, silly self. It’s not as good as giving him big good night smooches and hugs, but it never fails to make me smile.

Here’s wolfie beat boxing. sorta.

A few years ago i was in the kitchen when i heard something coming from the living room. it sounded rhythmic and I couldn’t figure out what it was….and suddenly i had the realization that my boy was trying to beat box. hah! i asked him what he was doing and he said “I making that sound like Biz” (aka Biz Markie on Yo Gabba Gabba). When i asked him to repeat it, he didn’t really do the same beat/melody but its still kinda funny. I’m so happy I have this little moment preserved.

Making little videos of your kiddo is such a great thing. I’m not talkin’ about big honkin’ camera filming an event. I’m talkin’ whip-out-the-camera and spontaneously film a little moment. No major filming. Just something small. A few weeks ago I “interviewed” Wolfie and the results were hilarious. He is 6 and has such funny and interesting opinions on things. I didn’t tell him it was an interview but he was lolling on the couch and I just hit “record” and started asking him questions. I highly recommend it!

Speaking of awesome video, the amazing elementary school students over at New York City’s PS22 are at it again. These kiddos are fabulous. And while it sounds cheesy, listening to the purity of their lil voices and seeing the pride on their faces just makes me crazy happy. If you don’t like this then I say you have a heart made of stone, my friend! This is their rendition of Lady Gaga WHICH RULES. But I also love their versions of Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin’ (BEFORE Glee, thank you very much) Coldplay’s Viva La Vida, and Fleetwood Mac’s Landslide and Forever Young by Alphaville. Their teacher Mr. B is pretty fab.

I’ll still be posting while in Prague, but perhaps a little sporadically. Happy Wednesday.
