The Greats

In order to distinguish between Grandparents Faber and Great-Grandparents Faber, we call the Former "Grandma and Grandpa Faber" and the latter "Grandma and Grandpa Great." We're staying with the Greats this summer to be closer to Will's new workplace and so far (a week into the summer) it's been great (no pun intended).

Today, while Will was at work, Grandma and Grandpa let Reese and me join them for some errands. Grandma was getting her hair done while the rest of us went to a nearby park to let Reese play. Reese had a good time- until she managed to find the one mud puddle on the playground and proceeded to stomp, splash and then sit in it. It was fun at first, but then she realized she was wet and dirty and broke down crying.

She doesn't like being dirty. I took off her pants so she could sit in her car seat without muddying it up, but she also noticed how muddied her socks were and became very upset about it until I took them off, too. So far she's been pretty meticulous about keeping her hands clean, but it seems she may end up being a generally clean child. And I am completely to blame for the fact that we had to drive home to get a change of clothes before picking up Grandma. I should know better than to not bring a change of clothes when going to a park.

New Job

Okay, so it's not really a job, it's an internship. I might consider an internship a job if they paid him but, unfortunately, Will only gets the education and experience to his credit.

That said, he very much enjoys work after the first week. Reese and I are having a good time hanging out with Grandma and Grandpa Great in the meantime.

Here's Will at his workspace. His class voted him "most likely to hang the SOB model in his cubicle" at the end of last semester. They gave him a poster of the model as a prize for winning the award- so he put it up at work. (The SOB model from his organizational behavior class was developed by his professor. It stands for "Situation, Organism, Behavior" in case you were wondering.)

Reese had somewhat of an accident this morning, so Will was kind enough to take her into the shower with him to clean her off. When he turned on the shower she cried and cried and then screamed as they stepped into the shower together. After about two seconds Reese decided this shower thing wasn't so bad, after all. She sounded like she was having so much fun, I had to record it. Don't worry, there isn't any visual except the shower curtain.

When Reese got out of the shower we decided to let her hair air dry without combing it. Surprise! It's curly.

Does this make my butt look fat?
