The end of summer

Well with the long weekend behind us the end of summer is here.  Many of my friends’ kids have already started school and many start today.  With summer unofficially behind us, what was your favorite memory?  What is your snapshot of the summer of 2014?  As a new mom I can’t pick just one, were you able to with your little one?  It just amazes me to see life through her eyes.

Okay what is your take on acquaintances and your kids?  I’ve had a few people who have asked to hold the little one and I’m okay with that.  I’m not okay when you decide to kiss her face or hands.  We’re at the age that everything goes into the mouth.  So your germs have now been ingested, thank you very much.  Perhaps I’m over reacting but I’ve spent the whole weekend with a sick household and I can’t help to think others germs had something to do with it.  Here’s hoping that next week is a better one.

This week’s nursery rhyme for the Greek folk and Zouzounia fans can be found here.  It is Ax Kounelaki

The loose translation that really is lost when in English goes:
Ahh bunny, bunny
A spanking you will receive
In a strangers garden
Holes why do you dig

Do not wrinkle your nose up at me
Do not wiggle your ears at me
Do not close your eyes towards me
You are a drawing

A little ditty about Jack and Diane...no really in all seriousness I'm a daughter, sister, wife and mother. I'm a Greek-American, who has transplanted in Canada. As a first time mom I'm sharing some things as I go along.
