Working It Out

I feel like I've fallen down the rabbit hole this month - I swear there should be more posts than this.
I would blame NaNoWriMo, but DH & I sort of bailed in the worst way. Instead, I'll blame the baby, since she is small and can't defend herself. ;-P
Z's been rather sad and clingy much of this month, but now we can see evidence of why:

That's my girl. Cutting her very first tooth ... just before her first birthday.

Back To Our Regularly Scheduled Programming

More gems from the minds of the minors:

From Boy-O: Miss N is being her usual chatty self, talking non-stop about something or other when she sees a sign on the door of the sub shop:
Ooh, help wanted. Can we help?

N, while writing a story: I'm gonna guess how to spell exactly.


T: Homework is (makes air quotes) "boring."

Baby Z, at this juncture, is limited to "gog" (dog), "mama" and "bapa" or "dada".
Therefore, her story is told via photo essay:

"Ooh -let's go over there."

Jezebel interrupts with an "Oh, please, can't I lick her a little?"

"Look, mama! I found the pretty pictures!"

[At this point, we genius parents realize that she's watching South Park. A hasty channel change is effected.]

"Mama Bear - what a huge head you have."

"Eh. I'm bored with this show."

"Ahh. The static channel is the best."

I haven't the words for how I feel today.
The thing I dared not believe in, that I couldn't possibly hope for, lest I get my heart broken again, actually happened.
The thing that reassures me that no matter what, America is not the same country todya that she was yesterday.
The thing that lets me tell my kids, honestly, that the American dream is their dream, too.
Damn. I'm so proud I could burst.
