Barefoot in Dublin

It’s a really good thing that we finally have some short-sleeved-weather days. Since moving to Ireland, C has seen people in shorts and T-shirts so infrequently that he thinks if arms or legs are showing people are “nay-nay” (naked).

My neighbors soak up the sun in the lane. One by one they had to pick up their chairs and move so we could get through with the car.

  1. Oh, I love your street! I am surprised (i’m not sure why) Nolan and C speak the same language- nay-nay and yight. Miss you!

    • In the ever-changing world of toddler language acquisition, the “l” has arrived (I guess it also belies how behind I usually am in posting, too, since this trip was over Easter!)

      I miss some of the cute toddler-speak. C also had trouble with the hard “k” sound–so he used to say “nay-ched” or “nay-nay” and “milch” for “milk.” Now everything is a question, “Can I…?” “Can you…?” Hope you are enjoying the heat!

    • I’m told it won’t last, but it was amazing while it did. Plus there’s the “stretch in the evening”–sunlight until after 9pm. It’s amazing. But the flipside is that I didn’t apply sunblock carefully enough and got sunburned on my back! In Dublin! And also realized I brought about 2 short-sleeved shirts. Grandma Rose’s dress came to the rescue.

  2. that is the prettiest lane ever!! I love that people are sitting out reading! no one even uses their beautiful balconies in New York or much here in L.A. either…Love nay-nay and yight! love peace and light to you all!!!
