I’ve noticed something new in Anne over the last three or four days. There seems to be a new light in Anne’s eyes… It’s hard to describe; her face just seems to have more expression. She laughs more and her eyes seem to hold more. Does that make sense?
She’s also saying things that absolutely crack me up. Sometimes I laugh so loud that I startle her, but she recovers quickly and joins in my laughter. Here are a few examples…
While eating breakfast…
Anne: What if there were a skunk in my cereal?
Me: Your cereal would be really stinky!
Anne: You’re not supposed to say stinky… that’s a bad word.
Me: Oh, I didn’t know that. I’m sorry.
Anne: Speaking of stinky, can I have some pepsi?
Later that morning…
Me: Anne, I don’t have anything to eat for breakfast, what should I eat?
Anne: What about oatmeal?
Me: We’re all out of oatmeal.
Anne: What about eggs?
Me: We ate all the eggs yesterday.
Anne: Hmmmm…. What about fried Anne?
