Ooking for Butter

After a disagreement over why she could not have a 2nd Banana;
Declaring there would be NO more marshmallows until bedtime snack ;
After telling her for the 25th time, in 30 minutes to "PUT THE KITTY DOWN"

Aunt Olly & Maddy, Summer 2009

the sweetest voice asked "Outside ook at the moon, Mommy? Go Outside Mommy?"

"Sure sweetie - just put your shoes on"

And, after 15 minutes of looking and finally locating the pair of shoes that she wanted to wear - to "ook" at the moon, we were on the back deck. We looked to the East, we looked to the West, we went around to the front of the house to look North. No moon. We looked under the deck and behind the shed - cause, well, you never know. No moon.

Sadly, I looked at Madaline and said "No moon tonight honey - too many clouds. Come on, its dark, its cold, lets go inside"

And, holy moly, you would have thought I told her that I was going to take her birthday away. Anyone within a 10 miles radius must have thought the world was coming to an end with all the screaming that was going on.

And, just as suddenly as it all started, her gnat like attention span was diverted from her I-Wanna-Ook-At-The-Moon scream fest by my sister's cat suddenly appearing and prowling around on our deck.

After chasing Olly's cat around the deck a few times, Madaline declared "Go inside Mommy - Me take a shower/bath - Shower/bath make it butter. Make it butter Mommy".

And, just like that, we were done "ooking" for the moon.And, off we make it "butter", err, better.
