Just got back from a conference on the mechanism of genome evolution at Indiana University last night. This is my first time to be away from home after David was born. The last time I was away from the kids was back in Nov 2005.
Now Alyssa and Vivian are old enough to know what is going on, they were very sad knowing that I'll be away for a couple days. So before I go, I gave each of them 11 chocolate balls and told them that they can have one after each meal. This way they can count the remaining chocolate balls and know when I'll be back.
As I've guessed, Vivian asked Ann whether I'll be home immediately if she ate all the chocolate balls at once. She is just so silly and cute and makes my life full of fun.
