Aw, so cute. Also: being an adult sucks.

I had this exchange with the SweetBabyGirl first thing this morning:

Pissed Off Mom [opening door to SBG's bedroom and approaching]: Good Morning! Did you sleep well?

SBG [smiling]: Yes. I sleep all night.

[Everybody smiles.]

SBG: What did you dream about?

POM [staring into the distance]: I dreamed that it rained and the roof came off of the garage and then the house fell down and then I woke up.

SBG: .....

POM: What a silly dream! [Laughs unconvincingly.]

SBG: [stretching luxuriously] I dreamed puppies and kittens and mommy puppies and mommy kittens.

The P Word

She's said it twice now: Princess. As in, look at me, I'm a princess [wearing this thing I just put on backwards].

Could be worse, though. We had this exchange today:

SweetBabyGirl: When I grow up, I'm going to be a princess! Named Emily Elizabeth Ami!
POM [with fake smile]: Oh, really?
SBG: Yeah! [waves hand with three-fingered "devil" salute] ROCK AND ROLL!!!
