Mr.Rubiks--A new toy


I made it through my first solo trip just fine. By the fourth day, Kai woke up crying calling for “mommy”. He probably thought I was never coming back! When they picked me up from the airport, I hopped in the backseat and Kai touched my face. I think he wanted to make sure I was really there.

I think I made it all up to him with a special gift from New York. We call him Mr. Rubiks. He is like a Rubik’s Cube because every piece of him moves around. Mr. Rubik can do the splits, breakdance, and even hold your business cards.

It was a find from Corduroy Kid in Park Slope. The store clerk said he was hand painted in Upstate New York with non-toxic paints.

I leave for New York tomorrow without my two guys either. I've been feeling anxious about it all week, but found your insights and reminders reassuring. Too bad that I have to work most of the time...exploring the streets of the NYC sure would be fun! Glad you had a good trip!
