Can You See It?

Last night when I got home Henry was very excited to draw with me while Meg made us dinner. I drew him as many things as I could think that he likes or knows the word for, stars, bananas, cars, trucks, helicopters, numbers, bunnies, etc. At one point he drew a few lines and then pointed at it saying "ha, ha, spuh, spuh" (his words for helicopter and spin). Meg and I were very impressed. His first drawing! I'll put a picture up of it soon. One can't really tell what it is, but he thought it was something.

After that we at dinner (just the two of us, Meg went out with friends), cleaned, bathed, read and went to bed. He wasn't too happy once he figured out his mother wasn't upstairs, I guess he didn't realize she had left the house/property. It's getting a bit tough to handle his mother obsession. Meg and I are trying to think of ways to break this a bit. It can get tough to handle him when one's glad to have him by oneself, but he keeps crying and saying, "ma."

I searched a big load of pennies once Henry went to sleep. 10,300 of them turned up one Indian Head (1897), fifty-seven Wheats, ninety Canadians, one Sweden 50 ore (2000) and one UK penny (1998). That's the second Indian Head I've found this year and the second 19th century coin of this year. In addition one of the Canadians was a really sharp George V, 1933. The Wheats were:

1934, 1936, 1937, 1939, 1940(4), 1940S, 1941(4), 1942, 1944(3), 1944S(3), 1945(2), 1946(2), 1947, 1948, 1948D, 1950, 1951D(2), 1953(2), 1953D(2), 1955(3), 1956(3), 1956D(2), 1957, 1957D(6), 1958(2), 1958D(5)

Found: 2 pennies (at Stop & Shop), 1 dime (at Stop & Shop)
