Joe-Y-H

Joe-Y-H is one of Eitan's fast pals - the boys share a classroom and yoga, among other things. There are three "Joes" in the class each beginning with the same late name initial (go figure) - hence Joe-Y-H. Any case, he is fabulously expressive and this photo is not a one-off. Unfortunately I pull an amateur move and let the batteries on my Canon run down so I don't capture the full chaos of the sugar-fueled evening. I apologies to you, my faithful readers (ok- dad!).

Eitan wakes up today and counts his score. We've been through this number before - last year, the boy nailed me red-handed for flagrant sweetie pinching in the after-hours. When I ask Madeleine why Eitan doesn't otherwise enjoy the candy, Madeleine tells me conspiratorially:
"He eats it with his friends- when they are not allowed" and more: "he only shares it with the boys!" She is fascinated by her older brother and clearly.
