Toofless Wonder!

Now Leo and I are in San Diego with my mom, while Seymour and the girls are boating up in Canada (and our dear Grace should know that they're on a fuel- rather than wind-powered boat). There have been five million exciting and a few shocking developments in the last two weeks, but damn if I've got the energy and recall to address it all right now. Perhaps once we get back home and Leo has two parents and/or some respite. Active boy, especially on the road with few of his usual comfort zones to retreat to! As I tweeted yesterday, traveling with Leo, even when he's sweet and compliant and happy like he is now, can feel like this:

Six Leos! Or Is It Seven?

Home tomorrow. Seymour and the girls home Saturday night.
