Just because it has been awhile...

Yes, I'm still under the evil influence of the "Villes". I see a New Year's Resolution looming in my future.

But in the meantime:

Elizabeth amuses me these days because she doesn't understand what a joke is yet. Pretend you say to her "Elizabeth, what is a goblin's favorite food?" She will say "What?" You say "I-scream." She will laugh like you've just said the funniest thing ever. Then she will say to you "What is a ghost's favorite food?" You will not really know what to expect, but will be expecting something along the same lines, so you say "What?"

She says "S'mores".



Then she follows that up with "Why do Dinosaurs ride horses, and play with dolls and sing songs?" You say "I don't know (I can't imagine!)."

She says "Because they are playing pretend!"

And then she laughs hysterically.

Repeat this a few hundred times. She's got the tone, she's got the delivery, but she's missing the punchlines.

And I don't have the first idea how to explain that to her.

"The man who smiles to himself in times of trouble has found someone else to blame"...or something like that.

I blame my recent lack of blogging on Farmville, Fishville, Yoville, Petville and Cafe World.

Because I am playing them all.

It isn't much...

Tonight, in the parking lot of the library, Lilli got in a kissy face mood. She wrapped her arms around my neck, and was squeezing tight and planting smooch after smooch on me. Then she took my cheeks in her hands, squeezed her hands together and said "Mama! I want to hug your mouth!" I thought that was pretty cute.

Sorry, I know I owe you a kajillion posts, but that's all I have for tonight. A moment of cute.
