This conversation (as always) between Ms. B. and D:
Ms. B.: You’re embarassing me.
D: It’s my job.
Ms. B. (total deadpan): That’s funny. I thought you were an architect.
D: Well, that’s my day job. But my lifelong passion is to annoy and embarass you.
I swear, sometimes at dinner I like to just sit across from the two of them and silently watch the floor show.
Peanut learned the word ‘ouch’ this week, but doesn’t quite have the usage figured out. She knows it has something to do with her finger. So she’s been randomly holding out her finger to us and saying “ouch.” We know there’s nothing wrong, but we give it a kiss anyway.
When Peanut and I come home at the end of the day, before we even get the front door all the way open, she starts chanting, “Hi, Sissy! Hi, Sissy! Hi, Sissy!” To which Ms. B. always responds “Peanut! Let’s go play outside!”
