The man in the background is not me, it’s a friend, S__W. The little man with him is, of course, Mini__B. But never mind them – look at that HUGE WOODEN PANDA GROWING OUT OF THE TREE!

Mommy was late getting home last night. About an hour after she would ordinarily have been here, Mini__B decided to take things into his own hands. He handed me his (incredibly tiny) knapsack, and while I held it open, he loaded it with his favorite cars. He then put on his shoes, put on the knapsack, waved goodbye and went out in the hall to stare at the elevators, willing Mommy to appear.
Obviously his efforts were responsible.
