Benny and Irene!
I'm the one with the red hair. Mumsy is the one with the crazed grin. Kristen is the other one with the crazed grin and Irene is the adorable child sporting overalls. Now I want you to look at us babies, and then look at our mothers. Just look at the expressions. Now you can come to your own conclusions. But if you think we look a little patronizing, a little tired of being patient with lunatics, a little nervous to be in the presence of such inanity, then you my friend are correct.
When we arrived in Ohio, I was tired.
But when I saw what a
great time everyone was having,
Here's how it works. I build the towers.
And then this girl comes along and knocks them over. I don't mind. I like it. Sure I make a pretense of getting frustrated and whatnot, but it's all for show. Inside I'm saying, "She noticed my towers! I think she likes me!"
Here I am providing a
little stacking instruction to my curly-haired friend. She was a patient
pupil, as long as she got to knock down the homework. In return, she was
teaching me how to sing and talk.
We found other stuff to do together like stack rings and play baby parade and swim in the pool. Irene's Nana's house has this great bench in the window which is just perfect for playing! We didn't let it go to waste!
Irene and I got great books as presents from Irene's Nana and here is Mumsy reading to Irene while I busy myself with my shoelaces. Or something. Irene is enormously better at talking than I am and even though I tried to convert her to the cult of DUCKA, she was steadfast in her forwardthinking ways.
Of course I had to assert
my possession of my Mumsy sometimes too. If you don't sack out on her
once in a while, she gets confused and wanders off,
This is my method of
blowing bubbles. That's right, I do the chicken dance. It doesn't
produce very many bubbles but you can see that it has gotten me my own
Here I am filling up an
important truck with some important water. Irene didn't feel like
playing trucks because she was too busy splashing me with the hose!
Kristen's Mumsy's house has a great back yard
Mumsy and I had a great time with Kristen, Irene, and Irene's Nana. We wish we lived next door to all of them so we could play every day.
