Another reason I love my daughter ...

Scene: Michael and the kidlets are watching some nature documentary on PBS. There are seals. And penguins.

Bucket: Penguin!!

*documentary narration says something about the circle of life, blah, blah, blah.*
*Seal chases penguin. It's obvious that it's not going to end happily for the penguin.*

Michael: *trying to break it gently for Bucket* The seal's going to eat the penguin. Oh well.

Bucket: *rather cheerfully* Oh well. ... Bye-bye Penguin!!

Yeah, she's got quite the character and sense of humor. We started doing the "got your nose," including the eating and spitting out of said nose. She never fell for it. In fact, she'll steal my nose, gulp "it" down, and replace it. REPEATEDLY.

She and Michael are still watching the show. They've moved from Antarctica to ... um ... elsewhere.

Bucket: Mouse.
Michael: Beaver, Bucket.
Bucket: MOUSE.
Michael: It's a beaver. See the flat tail? It's really a beaver.
Bucket: MOUSE!
Michael: ... Do you want to go to bed?
Bucket: *not missing a beat* Beaver.

Never a dull moment around here. ... But I'll say that I'm SO flippin' GLAD that they took a FRACKIN' NAP today. It's about time!

Maybe they'll stop waking up about an hour earlier than usual. I really am getting tired of my babies being awake at six-thirty ... Especially when they're usually up around 7 or 7:30.

At least they're cute.
(And Bruise is talking more. Woot!!)
