Won't You Be My Neighbor

Won't you be my neighbor?  Today's TGILucy was inspired by the recent Open House across the street from us.  It was like I couldn't tear myself away from the window, wondering WHO might be our new neighbor.

Baby Decoy

When I was a youth, I didn't know that people that I perceived as being self assured could be insecure, that those who appeared to be stuck-up were just shy, and that if you're at a loss for words, all you had to do was present a decoy.  This method works on people that you do and do NOT know how to talk to.

Bow Club

Easter Sunday and we have all of the kids dressed to the eights (not the nines, because...well, sneakers).  Our pastor comes over to compliment the littlest on her pretty bow and my husband's response was automatic and the one that I used for this comic.

It bears repeating, though: if you want the toddler to keep the bow on her head and not attack you, do NOT talk about the bow.  Ever.

Thankfully, our little one has yet to attack anyone who mentions the bow, but it's only a matter of time.

But as for baby Hannah in the comic, I think that her temper and tolerance of both bows and Wickham is about equal to her Auntie Irmgard's.

Tongue Tied

Ever been on hold so long that you get tongue tied when they finally pick up?

Ever do the dishes while on hold?

Make a cake?

Take out the trash?

Start dinner?

Eat dinner?

Eat the cake?

Go to sleep?

Old MacDonald

One morning I was casually quizzing the kids on what noises different animals made.  Then we tried some more difficult ones.  Giraffes, platypuses, earth worms.  The last one stumped them exceedingly until I started screaming and yelling as though I was being eaten.

The kids laughed and laughed and insisted that I make it a comic.

Now it's not gruesome since the kids requested it...right?
