Question #4: What's so funny?
The answer to this question depends on how sarcastic I'm feeling, or if I've gone over an edge somewhere.
Barring those variations on humor, here's what tickles my funny bone right now.
Rose, age 2, getting SOOOOOooooo excited and happy over the simplest things. Like me bringing her a crayon. "Thank you Mama!" she says, in total rapture.
Same Rose has a quick and quippy way of saying, "Bye bye Mr. Buttface!" She's pulled it out at some choice moments; most recently, when we dropped my mother off at the airport. I tried to look stern.
Lily, age 4, demonstrating the dance that bees do when communicating with other bees. "This is The Round Dance. It means the pollen is close!" Lily orchestrates a sequence of circular movements with the air of a 70-year-old former ballerina.
Lily has also been creating environmental education videos. Apparently, she has a strong activist gene. I don't know that I've ever seen anyone so young demonstrate such conviction. Here: A few gems on YouTube for viewing convenience.
Rose’s sad face. She pushes her lips out as far as they’ll go, in a tight little “O,” and pulls her eyebrows down toward her nose. Then she hunches her shoulders around front and hangs her head. Again, I try not to laugh.
That time when I heard Rose's voice coming from the bedroom: "Milky, milky!" Upon investigation, I found her sleepily trying to pull Lily's pants down.
I'll hop back to this post periodically to add more funnies. These memories are worth their weight in gold when the kids get older.
