Contrary

Eighteen month-olds can be quite contrary.  Our little ...angel...figured out how to turn the television off.  and on. and off.  and on  and off.  and on.  and off.  and on and off and on and off and on and off and on and off and on and off and on and off and...well, maybe you get the picture.  To top off, our ...angel... knows what the word "NO" means, but, after pausing for a FRACTION of a second, does it anyway.  She was getting on Dad's last nerve, so we packed up in the middle of Sesame Street and went for a walk.  I put her in the stroller and we got the mail and walked through the park.  By the end of it we were both back on good terms with each other and we could speak civilly...that is I could.  She doesn't have much more than the word WAHHHHHHHHH at her disposal, and that is an omni-dimensional, multi-meaning word.

She had a good lunch and played for about 40 minutes before heading off for a nap.  I had been watching the Battle of the Bulge with Henry Fonda, but their use of American tanks put me off.  I switched to Strategic Air Command, with Jimmy Stewart.  This is MUCH better.  B-36s!!

Here are some pictures from our walk so you won't have any problems with my posting.

 Yeah, she's in an alley.  I thought it was a cool shot.
 Chloe seemed to enjoy the outing.

She doesn't seem sad about having to quit Sesame Street half way through... lovely story! Glad you wrote it without interruptions. I hope too that the house is still standing when Cora gets home, because I'm looking forward to Tuesday's report!
