Random Question Thursday

What's your new favorite thing?

The Champ, as you can see, has found the window sill a delightful place to watch the "gucks" pull in and out of the plumbing contractor's facility next door. As soon as he hears the heavily, metalic squeal of breaks he makes a break for the window.

Ittybit's new favorite thing involves movies ... Nim's Island, Kung Fu Panda, and Barbie "classics"** have all made it into the top rotation. As has popcorn with "real" butter "not that fake stuff that dad eats."

My new favorite things are Target coffee and pestering Jed to make another window guard.

** Here's the story behind the Barbie "classics" bruhaha: I promised Annabel a DVD of her choice (because she was getting the dark side of a promise) and during a tearful phone call she came up with "Barbie and the Joker." As I was frantically searching the internet for such an unfathomable title, I skeptically asked her to describe the movie. ...

"You know ... it's the movie about two Barbies and a guy who's a joker. I saw it at Emma's house."

Thinking ... thinking.

"Do you mean "Princess and the Pauper?"

"Oh, MOM! That's it! You're right! For once in your life, you were right!"

I started to chuckle and the conversation became a two-way over on the sitter's end: "Oh Annabel that's not nice. Appologize to Mom!"

"But she's laughing ... "

Despite being on the phone, I could feel Lori's glare.

"I'm sorry, mom."
