Showers, snow, then slop.
Just some pictures of what things look like around here.
I wanted to share a typical conversation with Miss M.
M: "What are you doing Daddy?"
Me: "Reading a magazine."
M: "That mag-zeene has letters on it! ♫ A-B-C-D-E-F-GRee.♫ A is for Amanda. I like my Amanda, he nice. Do you like my Amanda?"
M: "Me too. She wears big girl underwear. I wear big girl underwear. Grandma wears big girl underwear, do you wear big girl underwear?"
M: "Cows don't wear big girl underwear, cows are stinky, they need bath. Do you want to give the cows a bath? They need a bath. They can't go way up in the air. [raising hands up in the air] Cows ride in the big ole truck, they don't want to be in the truck. That's too bad. I like riding in the big old truck. Dan___ likes riding in the big ole truck. It goes, Rrrrrrrrrrr. It noisy. You need to wash your big ole truck. It's dirty. ♫Twinkle twinkle little star, how I wonder what you are ♫, mama called the Dr. and the Dr. said, ewww that's yucky! Two little monkeys jumping on the bed, bumper-bumper Dr. said, no more monkys jumping on the bed. I don't jump on the bed that is a no-no! Are we going to church?"
"No, it is Monday, we just went yesterday."
M:"Yesterday??, I like my Sherry. Do you like my Sherry?"
Me:"Yes, who is Sherry?"
M: [pause, with contemplation] "Your mama."
Me: "That is right, she is my mama."
M: "And Dan__'s momma, and mama's (amanda's) mama, and....."
Me: [exasperated] "No, just my mama."
M: "He my grammy Sherry."
M: "....and Dan___'s grammy Sherry, and Connor's grammy Sherry...."
[more exasperated] "No, she is just yours and Dan__'s grammy Sherry."
M: "I like my Sherry[no pause]Where'd the cows go?! There isn't any cows in my room. They can't come in here. They stinky. They make poops. They need diapers." [actually was discussed] I don't need diapers, I'm a big girl. Dan__ isn't a big girl. He a big boy. Where your phone go!? I have a phone. You want to talk on my phone? [hands me a wood block]
M:"I'll call Aly. [case worker] Hello? Hello? OK. I... OK Hello? OK. 4..5...4... OK, Where are you? OK. OK.. Hello?.....Hello?......OK....Bye. That Aly. Do you want to talk to Aly? He coming here. ♫E-F-G-H-I-J-K.......squishing up a baby bumble bee ♫....
Me:"OK you need to go play in your room now............[sigh]"
