She's still odd.
When I go out, Munchkin says, "good bye mummy! Be careful and don't let any of the monsters get you!"
You'd think she'd be neurotic, given that she thinks that monsters lurk everywhere, but it doesn't seem to bother her.
She thinks we should get an octopus. Baby tried to roll off of the bed? "What we need is an octopus. Then the octopus could catch Firefly when he tried to fall."
I left my purse at a restaurant? "We need an octopus that's big, and also medium. It could get mummy's purse for us."
Well it could, dear, but it would also require a large tank and a variety of amusing activities. I'm too lazy to own a dog. I'm not ready for any varsity level wildlife.
I think that the reasons my headphones keep breaking is that my baby keeps trying to gnaw on them.
I went down to the US drop box to fetch the packages for the family this month. Allow me to demonstrate why the employees at the drop box, very nice people who are evangelical Christians of the t-shirt-wearing variety, think that my family is a family of loons. Our pick-up list:
- 5 lb soy milk powder
- 2 doll wigs, new
- 1 used doll wearing ugly gauze disco dress
- 1 Star Trek themed plastic wallet
- 1 snow suit and boots
- 4 ties (my BIL's, and therefore of excellent taste)
- 1 Fisher Price brand seventies-era plane
