Happy New Year from the Land o' Nod

[Damned cute photo of the Girl, deleted]

Funny, you say, she doesn't look like the kind of girl who would lock her mommy out on the front porch on New Year's Eve, then mock her through the storm door until bribed (with a popsicle) by the neighbor to go get her brother to unlock the door.

And funny, you say, that she doesn't look like the kind of girl who would refuse to go to bed because she wanted to stay up with the "big kids", finally howl herself to sleep--and be up and perky and poking her fingers in her mommy's eyes (in a totally adorable fashion, of course) at 6:00 a.m. New Year's Day.

Funny, she doesn't look like the kind of angel who would pick up her brother's most aggravating habit and mutter "Pewpy-had mama" at her mommy when her mommy made her go back to bed at 6:00 a.m. New Year's Day after realizing that she was not going to stop with the eye-poking.

Yaaaah...reeeeeaaaaal funny.

Yawn. Happy New Year, sweetie darlings! (And yes, I'll get paranoid enough to pull this photo by Monday, so enjoy it now! [Surely you knew I meant it! You've gotta be quick to catch the photos around here.])

She's an angel. Yeah, it's hard to know the ways of angels.

In any case, thanks for the great story.

AWWWWW!!!! She is just precious!

And, no, she doesn't look like that sort of girl.

I laughed aloud at your story. These things are always funnier when they happen to someone else.
