Adelaide: Knock-knock (as she knocks on my shoulder).

Me: Who’s there?

Adelaide: Orange.

Repeat many times, until finally my “Who’s there?” gets this response from Adelaide: “Orange. Ha, ha, ha, so funny!” (She laughs as she puts her little hand to cover her mouth.) I need to tape it…it’s very funny! LOL


I can’t help but be amused when Matthew refers to Mike and me as his “grown-ups.”

Purple Fuzzy Bugs

Adelaide to Mike: “Oh, no, Daddy! Bugs!” Over and over and over again. She thinks the dark, purple fuzzies from the throw blanket are bugs. Too funny! LOL

Her Drummer Plays the Harmonica…in Reverse

Adelaide’s latest interest is walking backwards. She’s been practicing every day. Sometimes, she likes to play the harmonica while walking backwards. The amusements are endless around here.

If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.” — Henry David Thoreau
