The Dora Day

100_0075 A few weeks ago, the family was in Virginia for my brother-in-law’s wedding.  The day before the wedding, everybody went to the synagogue for I and R’s auf ruf[1] during morning services.  Afterwards, Ari and Simeon went one direction, Caitlyn and I went another.  Apparently Simeon’s day became a long episode of Dora.

Unsurprisingly, Simeon fell asleep before the guys’ car left the synagogue parking lot.  When he woke up, he was being taken into the salon for his haircut.  I believe he started asking for me when they were leaving the salon, if not a bit before.  Ari’s response? 

First, we have to go to Uncle I’s house.  Then, we go to Meadowlark for the wedding rehearsal.  And then, we get to have dinner with mommy.  So, remember, Uncle I’s house…Meadowlark…dinner with mommy.  Uncle I’s house…Meadowlark…dinner with mommy.

And, true to the show.  When they were leaving Uncle I’s house, and Simeon started to get upset again, Ari repeated the mantra. ‘Remember…we’re leaving Uncle I’s house, what was next?  Now it’s Meadowlark and then dinner with mommy!
