damn kids and damn cramps

I got to spend some time with Rianna yesterday. Mom watches her on Thursdays, so I usually get to see her for a few minutes in the morning. But she is almost always gone by the time I get home from work. Yesterday, though, Rich stuck around so I could see her for a bit.

Not only is this child beautiful, she’s smart too. Her latest talent is saying “agua” whenever she wants water (or anything to drink for that matter). She also makes the sign for “milk” if she wants her bottle. This child is multilingual – she says “dad” and “dog” in English, “agua” in Spanish, and she knows American Sign Language for “milk.” Smart kid. Good gene pool.

She also does this little dance thing that is too cute. If you tell her to “get low, get low, get low,” she’ll squat her little butt down to the ground and back up again. Adorable.

After reading about it throughout Diaryland, I finally went over to hear what Disco had to say, or rather sing, about his hippie-chick neighbor. Damn funny stuff.

I had to share the hilarity, so I called Yesenia over to listen to it too. We laughed until our sides hurt.

Funnier still, though, was the two-year old’s spontaneous rendition of “Dolphin Safe Love.” Damn kids, pick up on everything. It’s probably wrong that we found it so funny. A two year old singing about someone getting their tuna canned, shouldn’t inspire such gales of laughter. But it did. We’re just wrong that way, I guess.

And because, apparently, there is no such thing as too much information when you’re maintaining an online journal for the fucking world to see (assuming, of course, that the fucking world doesn’t have anything better to do, which it really should), let me just say that I’m currently bent over in excruciating pain due to goddamn menstrual cramps. Bloody hell, every damn month it’s the same thing! You’d think science would have advanced to the point that women would be able to have pain-free menses, without having to go on hormones that completely eviscerate your libido.

Before I go crawl into a corner until the acetaminophen kicks in, let me say thanks to fluidlife for adding me to her favorites.

Listening To: Lauryn Hill, "When It Hurts So Bad"
Reading: nothing, my mind can't really function when my midsection hurts so much
Feeling: crampy
