The other day I almost answered my house phone, "Hello Talk'n'Save, this is Miriam, how can I help you?" Full circle I have come! (This used to be a problem circa 1999, when TnS only had one phone... and I answered it!) The joys of customer service. It's nice to have underlings, I admit... I haven't asked for coffee yet, but I do reserve the right... :)
We're all fine, overtired but fine. Really overtired - the girl took an hour nap on top of her father this afternoon as a follow-up to her nap-on-the-way home. She was up till like 9:30 too, and she was capital-Q hyper! Kiddo wore me out!
Oh, so she's not using a pacifier, hasn't for months, thank God. But she found an old one and immediately started sucking on it and talking around it and crawling around like a, well, like the kind of pacifier-sucking toddler that I always wanted to avoid having, which is why I never wanted her to have a pacifier in the first place. So as soon as she took it out of her mouth, oops, it mysteriously disappeared! So sorry! But check out the mondo cheek action, eh?
In walking news, she's not buying it yet. Just because she CAN doesn't mean she wants to. I think we can confirm an actual First Step two days ago (yay!) but there haven't been any follow-up ones. She's a devil with her walker though - watch out, she gets all over with that thing!
I did hear the girl say "nana" refering to a banana. And she says "Mommy" soooo sweetly that I want to increase her allowance. The metapelet says she said "tick tock" today, and that she said "amen"!!! I've been trying to teach her that for AGES, but I haven't heard it yet...
Oh, and the metapelet says she'll have a tooth within two days. Betting odds are opening at 2 to 16.3 (I never did understand odds), all proceeds to my daughter's orthodentia fund. God forbid we should need it!
