A "good enough" mom muses about alpha moms, adoption, computers, the State Of The World, Internet quirkiness, and the Kosmik All
Green kitties
"Mommy, I'm hungry!" "Well, let's see. You can have some string cheese, some yogurt, or some carrot sticks." Dotter stands there with a puzzled look on her face. Finally, she asks: "Green kitties? Why should I eat green kitties??" We had great fun eating "green kitties" (string cheese) this afternoon.
OmegaDad couldn't resist the "Great Hits of the '60s" collection at Sam's. OmegaDotter was okay with it, because it began with the Mamas and the Papas singing "Monday, Monday". But then "MacArthur Park" started. The instrumental lead-in prompted dotter to say, "This sounds sad." We replied, in chorus, "It's sad. Someone left the cake out in the rain!" She listened to the words. "Someone left the cake out in the rain??" she asked, amazed. "And it took so long to bake it! And he doesn't know if he can make that recipe again!" explained OmegaDad. "He left the cake out in the dark? In the rain?" "Yes, Dotter, in the dark, in the rain," I said. "That's sad." The song kept playing, we kept talking. Five minutes later, she said, "Is that cake still out in the rain?! This is taking too long!"
Before her bath, while we were waiting for OmegaDad, the dotter and I played on the futon. The dotter had been drinking yogurt drink. We played at her breathing YOGURT BREATH! on me, and me being knocked out by the YOGURT BREATH! Even with the drama of OmegaDad bringing her home from shopping because she wasn't behaving (which precipitated great misery), it was a Good Day.
