Well it’s a strange old game – you learn it slow
One step forward and it’s back to go
You’re standing on the throttle
You’re standing on the brakes
In the groove ’til you make a mistake

Sometimes you’re the windshield
Sometimes you’re the bug
Sometimes it all comes together baby
Sometimes you’re a fool in love
Sometimes you’re the Louisville slugger
Sometimes you’re the ball
Sometimes it all comes together baby
Sometimes you’re going lose it all

You gotta know happy – you gotta know glad
Because you’re gonna know lonely
And you’re gonna know bad
When you’re rippin’ and a ridin’ and you’re coming on strong
You start slippin’ and a slidin’ and it all goes wrong, because

Sometimes you’re the windshield
Sometimes you’re the bug
Sometimes it all comes together baby
Sometimes you’re a fool in love
Sometimes you’re the Louisville slugger baby
Sometimes you’re the ball
Sometimes it all comes together baby
Sometimes you’re going lose it all

One day you got the glory
One day you got none
One day you’re a diamond
And then you’re a stone

Everything can change
In the blink of an eye
So let the good times roll
Before we say goodbye, because

Sometimes you’re the windshield
Sometimes you’re the bug
Sometimes it all comes together baby
Sometimes you’re a fool in love
Sometimes you’re the Louisville slugger baby
Sometimes you’re the ball
Sometimes it all comes together baby
Sometimes you’re going lose it all

The Fisher Price Fun2Learn Workbooks & Flash Cards are discontinued; I found them at Atlantic Books in my town. I think they’ve been replaced by the Fisher Price “Little People” line of products which are sold separately.

No matter how tough the day has been —how unpredictable the mystery pains and developmental surges forward may be —I know I can always count on this:

Turn up your volume; it’s the sound that’s important…

For my visually impaired readers:

This is a succession of photos of Nik doing rascally —and, sometimes, potentially dangerous— things over the last week or so. Things like trying to use his Sit N Spin toy…on the sofa. Or trying to ride his scooter…on the hearth.

Things like doing handstands over the front end of his bike when it’s inside the house. Turning his toy bucket over to use as a very large step stool to reach things he wants. Trying to climb over the kitchen gate.

And a couple of videos of my daredevil at the park; he’s riding down hill at breakneck speed and giving me gray hairs with his near collisions…and not so near collisions!

Nik keeps me on constant alert these days as he makes huge strides in every area. Some days I’m just too tired to write!

There’s a light in the depths
Of your darkness
There’s a calm at the eye
Of every storm.
There’s a light in the depths
Of your darkness.
Let is shine
Oh, let it shine

Lest you think it’s all misery all the time around here lately, we’ve got new signs and sounds coming along! And Nik becomes more affectionate; less discriminating, apparently, but definitely more affectionate!

Just sharing the love!
