Sometimes I forget that the kid is new on this block, I realized last night she had never heard "10 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed". Well, as you can imagine, it was an instant hit, and I think she might be under the impression I made it up myself. I do pull off a funny voice for the Doctor: No more monkeys jumpin' on the bed! And every time I did the doctor voice, she fell over laughing onto the bed.
Anyway, in between giggles and jumping, she took a pause, looked at me, and said, Momma? You a funny girl. I don't get real compliments like that from her all that often, so I got down next to her and gave her a big hug and said thank you, and you're a pretty funny girl, too.
Between that, and I got a spontaneous I love you from her last night, I was flying pretty high when I left the house to go shopping with a friend. After all, the kid puts up with me all day, every day. If she really thinks I'm funny, I must be doing something right.
