Imogene can now sing along to the theme to the backyardigans. and a few parts of the songs between shows on nickjr. This is MUCH MORE APPROPRIATE than the only songs she would sing for quite some time, see icon.

and I may as well call her Imogene here, because I can not all her that to her, or where she can hear, like EVER, STILL. She's Pobo baby now. wtfever. idk what Pobo fucking means either.

HQ and her really play together to some extent, finally, but half of that is him messing with her or her messing with him, not them cooperating. and there's a fair amount of 'OMG MOM, JUST GET HER AWAY FROM ME SO I CAN watch my movie/play pokemon/play guitar' and quite a bit of telling him not to kill his sister. But I'm finally seeing that the age gap between them doesn't mean they can't be peers.

as far as hq goes, srsly, 8 is the new 13, he's all hair, attitude, music and videogames. also, he's almost up to my shoulder. Can read at an 8th grade level but still thinks most chapter books are too text heavy and all picture books are too easy, so he's not reading much for books. which i try not to stress over, not everyone reads novels for fun, right?

I get hit with the holyshit wonderment of how cool my kids are sometimes, but I can't really imagine why people would want to read about what my finkmonkeys get up to, so I try to avoid these kid posts, but sometimes I can not help it.

is a bit upset with the copier. So, she has unloaded all the boring white paper from the tray, and stuffed a wad of purple paper into it. Then she started pressing buttons. Apparently I am tech support, because she's half on top of the copier, going "mooooomm! Mooooooommaaaaaaa" and complaining in that "paper jam! wtf!" tone that I remember from my working days.

Now she wandered off while I typed, and turned on her brother's stereo. This baby and the tech. WTF?

In other moji news, she has words now. Words like Owl, and Cheese, (although that one has no vowels when she says it.) And she can sign elephant.

And both of them now sing along to "Hallelujah," which brings me to tears.

As for me, my shoulder did that thing it does, so all my right arm is qualified to do now is type and lift food. The pain now, interestingly, shoots down and Around from my shoulder to my ribs into my breast even, instead of at least staying in my damn back. Life with climby baby and little to no right side movement without pain is much badness.

The Man had to work tonight, because of the goddamn annual halloween riot, which they say won't be a riot this year, but well, yeah. But I'm bloody well hoping that the people who park like assholes or lock their drunk asses out of their cars are at a minimum, so the man will get away from State street before the riot hours. I really don't want him still down there towing when the tear gas comes out.
