A couple of years ago, Solomon learned to make Ukrainian eggs at school. He kept one, somehow, intact. He was always vehemently opposed to getting rid of it, but today he volunteered to dispose of it…which may or may not have to do with the fact that he’s about to start an after-school art session of Ukrainian Egg-making.
He has very much caught onto this letting-go-of-mementos process. He reminded me that I should take “a few” pictures.
The best part about this egg, though, was how long it took him to pronounce Ukrainian properly. For ages he called them Euchre-ainian. It was an adorable anomaly for him – he was incredibly precocious with language (full sentences at 18mos) and very precise in his pronunciation. We kind of loved it. The mispronunciation is now long gone, but this picture will always remind me.
And now I need to go consume some chips before I let them go for the entire month of Motivation March. So long, flippant February!
