One Reason I Grudgingly Admit to Having Married the Right Man

Because he totally got it, and laughed, when I said, to a glaring-at-me Bella,
"Quit looking at me like that, Firestarter."


When you get right down to it, all we really want in a life-partner is a good audience.


UPDATE: I was just making some MOO cards, and looking back, realized that "the glare" has been being cultivated for quite some time:
UPDATE DOS: Alex found another one, stored on his cell phone. Ah, fond memories of toddlerhood...

  4. Jessica--email me immediately! ninjapoodlesATgmailDOTcom

    I had a couple of orders I couldn't fill, but should have refunded them. If I did NEITHER for you, then we need to get that fixed, especially now that I can deal with it!

  7. Oh yeahhhhhh,

    She's practicing hard for the teenaged years! Can't wait until she combines the glare with the muttering, the stair-stomping and the door slamming. Then, you've got yourself the true package!

  8. Your timing is exquisite. We were just talking about how everyone in my family kind of... likes an audience.

    My brother is this || close to proposing to his girlfriend. They went to the Grey Cup (Canadian Football League final) game on Sunday and Mikey'd been talking about a Jumbotron proposal.

    We knew he wouldn't do it though - he hadn't told us ahead of time to tape it. He is such an attention-whore.

  9. Do not, I repeat, do not anger this child. Yes, she is sweet. Yes, she says the absolute sweetest things. Yes, those eyes could melt me when she says anything (like when she repeated a word you said once when we were talking on the phone...hmmm?.... ring a bell?).

    But the eyes. Watch the eyes. How hot is it near her temples. Move in closely, graze her face with your hands, and tell me that child couldn't set a teddy bear on fire that didn't obey her.

  10. Yes, that is what I am--his audience. I'm married to a born comedian. At least he thinks he is.

  11. And did she start saying, "Back off, just back off!" as her hair blew wildly around her head?

    Too funny!

  12. Wow! The resemblance is uncanny

    And yes, a good audience, makes for a good partnership!

  17. I would like to personally thank you for the invitation to return to see the 2nd photo. It has made me want to DRIVE THERE RIGHT NOW and stay all the way through the holidays.

    Love her. Love you. Love Alex. Love the poodles.
