"A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2013."
Over the past week, my little boy turned two.
I don't mean he had his second birthday, which was in mid-February, but that the toddler stage of independence and havoc has peaked overnight. He's pushing chairs to reach bookshelves, climbing on tables, coloring on walls, casting down glass bowls, spilling full mugs of tea. He's got so much spare energy, if the scientific community could just figure out how to harness it, I'm sure it's be a clean alternative, as long as the supplies of macaroni and cheese and lemonade keep on coming.
