When Daisy gets up in in the morning she's a little grumpy--for that matter, so am I. If I don't get into the bathroom to brush my teeth and wash my face before I get Daisy and Calvin up, the whole morning is a blur.
Anyway, back to Daisy... When I put her on the changing table first thing in the morning, she really doesn't like it. She'd rather me just hold her and take her into the kitchen and get her some oatmeal. However, she really (and I mean really) needs changing. So I try to speak sweetly and gently to her.
This morning I laid her down to change her diaper and said "Hi sweetheart! Did you have a good sleep?"
At hearing this her frown disappears and she says "Yeah!" the way only she can say it.
Me: "Let's have a good day today," trying to be really enthusiastic about it.
Daisy: "YE-ah!!" nodding her head vigorously.
Then she stuck her little foot into my ribs and kicked me--rather hard.
I was stunned.
This evening Perry came into the kitchen where I was washing the dishes.
Perry: "I'm going to sing '2 Little Monkeys Jumping On the Bed.'"
Me: "Ok, great idea!"
Perry: ........"I'm going to sing '2 Little Monkeys Jumping On the Bed.'"
Me: "Ok, honey, go for it."
Me: "Are you going to sing it?"
Perry: "It's loading."
I looked at him in amazement. He repeated that "it was loading" and then proceeded to sing the song--but slowly--as though his little internal computer was having a hard time with such a bulky file.
