a final note from Sara

I recently met a mom

who had moved to Yakima from another city just a few days before she ended up across the table from me at lunch. Melissa’s stuff was still in boxes but she’d already connected with a social group and was quickly learning about pediatricians, parks, preschools and all the other services and activities she was going to need to establish a new home for her family. How did she find this info? Playdate. As the founder of the magazine, I think that’s pretty cool. I started this magazine because I knew other moms would really use it. It’s such an honor to know that you do. This issue marks the beginning of Playdate’s fourth year, and it also will be my last issue as coordinator. Want to know what I’m going to do next? Well, turn to page 21 to find the schedule for Outdoor Summer Cinema. I’m planning to share some popcorn with a few friendly monsters and Indiana Jones. Of course, it would be nice to sleep in, but I’m sure the kids will want to hit the pool for morning swim lessons. Then we’ll pick berries from the garden and books from the library. Later, perhaps, we’ll ride bikes on the Greenway or catch a game with the Bears. Some days, we’ll eat popsicles for breakfast and watch too much TV. At summer’s end, when it’s time to head back to school, I suspect we’ll feel conflicted: Excited to see what the future holds, but also longing for a few more sweet summer days. At least, I hope that’s the way it goes. Hope to see you around ...

To round out the field trip, visit the new mammoth exhibit at the CWU Museum of Culture and Environment. The exhibit includes displays about mammoths and the Wenas dig, as well as some of the key finds including a femur bone measuring nearly 4 feet.

dad’s pad

It’s finally happened, and much

sooner than I expected. My daughter wants to be a princess. I thought she’d have a few more years of love for just furry animals and Elmo, but now she wants to be a princess. And not only that, but she wants to marry a prince. Thankfully, so far she wants me to be her prince. But already I have experienced a flash-forward moment of how her teenage life will look. And I think I already have to start preparing. It started with the usual suspects: Snow White, scott Sleeping Beauty, jr . klepach Cinderella and Belle. Lately her favorite is Tiana of “Princess and the Frog” fame, and I am her Prince Naveen. (My poor wife is left to fill the role of the hulking alligator, Louis, and our son is left to be Ray, the half-toothless firefly. “Hey,” I reassured my wife unsuccessfully, “at least the alligator knows how to play jazz.”) Unfortunately, this means I have to fit the part whenever my daughter demands it — that is, most times of the day, including the most inopportune times such as when we are out grocery shopping or at an appointment. This wouldn’t be so bad except I have to adopt a high-pitched, Frenchlike accent, otherwise she will promptly and huffily let me know I am PlaydateYakima.com

Of princesses, French accents and refrigerators

ILLUSTRATION BY MARK NORTHCOTT not doing a good enough job. I have to weigh my options here; do I risk appearing like a creepy European type in public, or disappoint my daughter? One look at my daughter’s pleading eyes means I will be alienating others with my performance. On the bright side, I’ve found I can have more space around me in waiting room lobbies. I don’t even mind so much that my daughter seems to get more excited to greet “Naveen” over her father. When she is pretending to be another princess, such as Sleeping Beauty, I can have the honor of dancing with her to our own tune of “Once Upon a

Dream.” But all this prince pretense is getting me a bit nervous. What happens when my daughter sees a boy and thinks he should be her prince? This day may come sooner than I expect, or am ready for. Two boys recently stood at our doorstep to sell cookie dough for a fundraiser, and my daughter boldly walked up to them and said, “Hi. I’m a girl.” Was she being a sassy flirt already? I have had glimpses of hope, however, that she won’t be entirely pleased with princes or boys. One day when she was playing she spotted a plastic male toy who was filling in as

the part of Phillip, Sleeping Beauty’s prince, and she looked repulsed. She said, firmly, “No, Phillip, you can’t come in.” When asked why not, she said, “Because Sleeping Beauty doesn’t want you here,” and proceeded to be perfectly content when he was well out of the playing area. I’m afraid these moments won’t last long. I told her that someday boys will attempt to kiss her, and I taught her to reject them, but I have a feeling this resilience will last as long as I can stay away from a triple-shot Americano, or many shoppers can refrain

from spending less than $300 at Costco. And now that I have a son, I will get to see both worlds. He is already a flirt, and charms his mother, grandmothers and aunts. At this point, though, at the still (sometimes) innocent age of 10 months, he seems to prefer to make out only with kitchen appliances and windows. He’s had his eye — and perpetually slobbery mouth — on the refrigerator for some time now. He also puts his mouth on the window and offers a look of wonderment, as if the object is alluring and perplexing to him in some exotic way.

But now he’s come to terms with his species: he is the male counterpart of being a human being. My wife caught him with the back of a Martha Stewart Living magazine pressed firmly against his lips. When she took it away, she discovered he had been enjoying several moments of kissing with a picture of a makeup model. Time moves on. Sorry, refrigerator. As enticing as you are, you have serious competition now. Years from now I will be competing for my children’s time, especially when it’s time for them to

date. I know I have to start preparing, even mentally, and I have already come up with a plan in my daughter’s case. Many prospective boyfriends will certainly turn around and run home when a man with a certain high-pitched, French-like accent greets them at the door. Scott Klepach Jr. is not really a prince. In addition to being a husband, father, writer and English instructor, he keeps busy making voices on demand and washing the refrigerator door.
