I'm slowly coming back out of my shell. My eye is better, finally. I've been tending to a medical issue of Theo's but his doctor said just yesterday that he should be ok (there was a lump on his neck that turned out to be a minor glandular issue after all but gave us quite a scare nonetheless). Now he has a little cough but I'm glad that he is sick with something as mundane as a cough. Lumps in your kid's neck puts shit into perspective quick.
Other than that I am gearing up for my next major project: Homeschooling. I've decided that since Theo's finest options for public education (either the one up the street from me which is a fabulous school that excels with both academics and the performing arts, or whether I have him tested for the NYC public gifted schools and he gets in), they don't start until Kindergarten. Theo just turned 3. That leaves me with two whole years to give him a homeschool foundation, one that I can augment with the ton of options there are for kids to be exposed to here in my city, my love. Museums and play spaces, concert halls, jazz performances, Alvin Ailey and toddler music and art classes - this city has it all. Me, my city, and my kid. The next two years will be a truly wondrous journey of growth for the lot of us.
