Things Seen and Unseen

Finally! I saw Josephine roll over! At least, I think I did. It was 4 a.m., tired, dark, etc. Plus, she's a speedy one. But I think I saw it. Go, Josephine! I asked her about it later, but she's a regularly Dick Cheney about her personal information. "Tell me," I pleaded. "Did you -- or did you not -- roll over last night??"

"Aboo!" she said. And smiled.

What does that mean???!

Speaking of things unseen, a couple of days ago Lucy was storming through the kitchen, waving her favorite orange fly swatter and screeching, "Get away, demon!" Umm. what??? "Get away, DEMON!" she repeated sternly.

Repeat: There was no fly nearby.

I'm fairly certain that exorcism is a skill that will prove very useful to her in later life, especially if she runs into one of the "Crazy Bosses" described in Stephen Bing's new book. Indeed, I'm thinking that I might... well, enough said. In any case, she doesn't often see demons. (She's not THAT Irish.) More often it's a gorilla in the living room that threatens to BITE HER TUSHIE. Those gorillas!! (And that was before she saw it eating poop at the zoo last weekend. How did she know they like that sort of thing?!)

What else? Yesterday Lucy and I went to see her ear specialist. But first she threw up in his bathroom. Sigh. Of course I did not have an extra shirt for her. Of course there were no more paper towels in the bathroom. You try cleaning up a 2T tank with toilet paper and foaming hand soap... Not easy.

Then later, I found Lucy in the babies' crib, stretched out next to Josephine, holding the baby's hand and patting her little belly. She is a very good big sister. I said, "I think Josephine needs a bottle." "NO," Lucy told me. "She needs me."

To my NJ folks: What do you think about the Science Discovery Museum in Cherry Hill? A good place for us to stop tomorrow? Or maybe the Camden Children's Garden??

I forgot the worst part of the throwing up story... When Lulu told me that her tummy hurt, I said, "You're hungry!! Have a granola bar. Here."
