With three writing deadlines looming, Team LOD had one of the most frenetic weekends in recent memory:
- On Friday night, my wife and I convened what will be known as the Great Co-Sleeping With Daddy experiment: Mama crashed on the couch, and I got to find out what it's like to wake up at 3am with your kid performing vigorous CPR on your chest.
- Saturday brought Robert's fourth birthday party, and I'd like to apologize to all the parents for turning their calm, pleasant darlings into sugared-up mini-hellions just in time to go home.
- Today, after a boisterous dim sum with the winsome trio at Sweet Juniper, I've spent way too much time chanting to myself, "How much Wood would a Wood-Dutch Dutch if a Wood-Dutch could Dutch Wood?"
Now, we're watching the Oscars. As his birthday cakes might indicate, the winner of Best Animated Film met with Robert's roaring approval.
