everybody gets a vacation

We've had a lot of family in town over the past month, grandparents, uncle, other grandparents. M's nana is in town now and will be for a little while, she hasn't seen M in a long time so the reunion was sweet. And quickly taken advantage of by M. Namely with a pouty face and a no one's buying me anything which causes grandparents to salivate and leap to attention and parents to have a heart attack that their child is actually acting that spoiled. All I know is someone is in for a big let down once everyone finally clears out.

Overheard this morning:
Nana: M, why are you dragging your baby around by it's neck?
M: It's not my BABY, it's my KITTY!
Nana: oh, but it's not a kitty it's your baby.
Nana: oh, ok, why are you dragging your kitty around by it's neck?
M: It's DEAD, Nana.

When I was little, my favorite joke in the world was "Why did the monkey fall out of the tree? Because it was dead." Boy, did I think that was hi-lar-i-ous.

M is my kind of pip.

She is clever your daughter. I always believed my cat was real and cried when my mother put it in the washing machine.
