Ru Snapshot

Today the beginning of a new bevy of lists. Kids tastes and interests, even their most passionate ones, change like the wind. At the moment...this is a snapshot of my oldest son.

Ru Likes
(he and I scoop avocados out of the shells with spoons together)
 chocolate milk
"fixers" (repairmen of all stripes)
taking pictures 
skateboarding and skateboarders
Aunt Gigi's apple cake
baking things
being read to
(we're working on Little House In The Big Woods)
sausages of all kinds
plain cheese pizza (I am mortified)
weed whackers and leaf blowers
dogs, of all kinds
Darth Vader
helping A take out the garbage
painting (both walls and watercolors)
St. Marcellin cheese
having a knife at dinner
drinking water
his flip-flops 
(he's very sad about the non flip-flop winter footwear custom)
salt on his food....lots of salt
mopping the floor
washing dishes
peanut butter and jelly sandwiches
Ranch dressing

Ru Can't Stand

tomato sauce on his pasta
fish of any kind
taking a nap
having his food cut up for him
long socks
zipping his coat up 
(he prefers to wear the whole thing flapping open, hanging by the hood from his forehead)
having anyone in the room while he's dressing
having anyone think he's "dumb" (his current paranoia)
waiting for winter
being put on the spot
dried pineapple
pants that are too short
