But that doesn't have anything to do with this post. Oooh, my stomach hurts.
Anyway, is my baby cute or what!? Da-da picked her a flower and put it behind her ear. Why does everyone think she's a boy? She totally looks like a girl.
This man is pretty damn handsome. I think I'll take him home with me. As if he'd ever be interested in little old me. A girl can dream, can't she?
We went to Sellwood Park the other day just to hang out and be outside. It was a lovely day. We played cards and did the crossword puzzle. Tania read to Lu, and Lu played with her toys.
Of course, playing the drums is lots of fun.
But whacking Daddy on the butt is even more fun.
And we ate some watermelon. I believe it was Lu's first taste of the glorious fruit.
Tania loves watermelon more than she loves life. I told her that if she loved watermelon so much, maybe she should marry a watermelon. She gave me this look.
(Oh, and a little note to self: Next time, buy the watermelon that has seeds! That way, you can tell your kids that if they swallow a seed, a watermelon patch will grow in their stomachs.)
Here's some more of what Lu has been up to:
Lu: Kitty. Sitting there so smug. I'll teach you a lesson, you wretched kitty. Always taunting me with your furriness, never letting me pet you. If I. Could just. If only. Oh, I'll get you, you kitty.
Kitty: Does that foolish creature actually think I can't see her? I'll let her get a little closer, just so that it crushes her that much more when I scurry away to safety. *chuckle, chuckle*
Lu: Crap! I've been spotted! I'll get you anyway!
Kitty: Ha, ha! You think you're quick enough, short stuff?
Lu: Doh! Foiled again! Perhaps I can corner her!
Kitty: You fool! Don't you know I'm a ninja-cat? I'm quick, like the wind!
Lu: I've almost got you, you feline trouble-maker!
Kitty: Almost got me, indeed! Do I look worried to you?
Lu: I'll get you next time, Kitty. But I think I've just found the way to escape from this hellhole.
Kitty: You'll have to become quicker than that if you're ever to have any hope of catching me. I hardly broke a sweat evading your grasp.
We picked this magnificent rose yesterday. It smells like heaven. Lu is in love with it, and spends a few minutes at a time waving at it.
Yesterday, Joey and Tania made an epic breakfast. It was de-effin-licious.
And that's pretty much it for the past few days. Life is pretty boring when you have sick kids. I almost got sick too, but I drank orange juice with echinacea all day long and it seems to have passed. Joey was not so lucky. Neither was Tania.
