Is Limerizing a 27-month-old wrong?  
So we celebrated our Thanksgiving this afternoon and I got to eat my whole meal with my right hand. Why, you ask? Because I was holding Gabriel in my left arm! w00t!! I love holding babies!

Then after dinner I was playing with Zoe and she wanted to go upstairs to see my room. So we went upstairs. Now, I have tons of pics of Zoe in my room. And she knows what she looks like so when she sees pics of herself she points to them and says "Dat's Zoe!" And she did not fail to do that with the pics I have up of her. But I also have two pics of DN displayed and she pointed to one of them and said "Who's dat?"

And I took the picture down for her and said "That's Diane!" And she said "Dat's Di-anne!" (there was a definite separation of syllables). Then she looked at the picture for a long, long time before she looked up at me and said "Pretty lady." Of course, I agreed with her.

Then she jumped on my bed for a little while. After tiring of that, she spotted the other pic I have displayed and pointed to it. "Who's dat?" she asked. And I brought the pic to her (it's one of DN and MH at some fashion show thingy. The one where DN is wearing that extremely long red scarf?) and she said "It's Di-anne!" And I said that it was Diane and I pointed to Mar and said "And that's Mariska! Can you say that?" She did. Perfectly. :D

She looked at the picture for a long time and finally said "Pretty." Then she noticed the frame and said "Slice of Lime!" Because, yes, the frame I have that picture in is a frosted glass frame with slices of lime painted around the edge!

Zoe has fabulous taste, does she not?

After that she wanted to brush my hair, so we went back downstairs and she brushed my hair, doing an excellent job of keeping it out of my eyes and locating my ears every stroke.

Zoe: ::brush:: Dere's one ear. ::brush:: Dere's your other ear. ::brush:: Dere's one ear.

She never actually brushed the ears, either. Just the hair. She's extremely meticulous and careful. It's very odd. She's also very clean. Washing her hands is one of her favorite activities. LOL

But anyway, so we had a wonderful Thanksgiving tonight! And I won an award for a Torres/Seven of Nine story I wrote. So, all in all, a terrific evening. Now, if I can get Tanked Muse out of her coma, I might be able to get back to work on some C/O.

How cute is she, really, and so obviously very astute! It's never too early to indoctrinate.

LOL Yeah, considering my brother and his wife had her decked out in a Duke basketball onesie and photographed when she was just six months old and my brother taught her this:

Justin: What's a Duke fan say?
Zoe: Go, Duke! ::pumps her little fist in the air::
Justin: What's a Tarheel say?
Zoe: Waaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

If they can do that, a little Limerism won't hurt. ;)

"Pretty lady." Of course, I agreed with her.

Ohmigawsh, I think I love this child.

awww cutie pie!! :) next, you should teach her to say, "C/O-Yay!" ;)
seftiri: LMAOseftiri on November 28th, 2005 07:51 pm (UTC)
LOL We're still working on the concept of Diane versus "Casey Novak". LOL But you should hear her when she says "Casey Novak". So.damn.cute. :D

Congratulations on winning the T/7 award, it was very deserved.

Zoe sounds like a total cutie.

Thanks! And she is. She wanted to see the pics of Diane again today when she came over so we went upstairs. She said "So pretty."

Ahhh...the Limerization of toddlers. Sigh... So much fun. LOL

Zoe sounds darling! Happy to hear that your teaching her all of the important things in life already ^-^
seftiri: Dreamseftiri on November 29th, 2005 04:35 am (UTC)
Definitely! LOL And Zoe is a dear. And so smart, it's frightening! O_o

"So pretty."

Sounds like she definitely knows what she's talking about. :) I would try to limerise my cousin, but I tried with her sister, who is two years older, a year ago. Lets just say that I was successful, but saying that their parents weren't too pleased would be an understatement!

LOLOL I don't understand! Why would idolizing DN/CN be at all an issue? LOL DN is a former model who left the modelling biz because she thought it was too shallow. She was a med student and forsees herself going back to that when she tires of the acting career. She's insanely funny, studied Biblical Archaeology, and contributes to about a THOUSAND charities! Casey is an attorney who fights for victims of sexual violence and abuse. She is zealous and most importantly, flawed. :D

I think she's a better idol than say, Barbie, right? LOL

(Anonymous) on November 30th, 2005 02:45 pm (UTC)
ESPECIALLY since Barbie divorced Ken, right :)?

No I don't think its so much that. My uncle and aunt had/have very big problems accepting that I am actually gay.Now they've started to accept it, but, obviously, I am out to corrupt their children...*hits head on desk*. How stupid can people be?

Oh, so cute! Such a smart girl. She sounds wonderful.

I'm almost, almost tempted to attempt to limerize my brothers, since I never get to see any of my cousins, but my mother's already less than pleased about their 'spot the lime-green-and-purple-objects' game.
seftiri: Limer Green and Goliath Purpleseftiri on November 29th, 2005 03:09 pm (UTC)
LOLOL My brother is too old to be Limerized. So I'm stuck with his kids. Gabriel is too young. He can't even SEE the colors lime and purple yet. He's still only seing red, black, and white.

But Zoe...so cute.

She was over again yesterday and she wanted to see the pic of DN and MH again so I showed it to her and she said "She has on a red scarf!" and we talked about the scarf and how long it was and then I said "I like them." (meaning DN and MH) and she said, all enthusiastic, "I like them too!! I like them too!"

What I'm really waiting for? Is for her to accidentally see a commercial for SVU with DN on it and have her point and tell her mother "Dat's Di-anne!" Because that would almost be as funny as the time she took the angel and the Mary figurines from her Fisher Price Nativity set and made them kiss.

Her mother was all O_o

And for the record, I did not teach Zoe that. I was just as surprised as her mother was but I hid it better. LOLOL

I could probably still limerize mine. They're eight and six. But like I said, not worth the trouble I'd be in for corrupting them any further than I already have.

Angel and Mary kissing? Oh, that's adorable.

My corruption of my brothers is fairly subtle. The younger of the two came into my room and saw my new Bebe Neuwirth poster and asked, "Who's that?" I said, "That's Bebe Neuwirth." He was like, "She looks good."

He meant it in the most innocent way possible, of course. He's said it before about other actresses. It's just a casual observation for him. But I said, "Yeah. She does. Now go do your schoolwork."
seftiri: LMAOseftiri on November 29th, 2005 04:15 pm (UTC)
LOL Out of the mouthes of babes! Perfect!

When I was 8 or 9, I shared a room with my brother, who was then 6 or 7. I had my half of the room just PLASTERED with Charlie's Angels posters and I used to kiss them each goodnight before I went to sleep.

When I came out at 22, my brother's one word response was "Duh!" When I asked him to elaborate he said, "I shared a room with you, remember? I've known you were gay since I was 7! You used to kiss the Charlie's Angels goodnight every night!"

I was going to point out that that didn't necessarily make me gay but then I never saw him kissing his GI Joe figurines goodnight, so I kept my mouth shut...LOLOLOL

Hah! I shared a room with my brother once. Not for long, because we moved, and the new house had a room for him. Then my other brother was born, and I roomed with him. I think my parents were trying to bring out something maternal in me. They learned quickly that I'm better at the cool big sister deal from a distance.

I was watching Justice League with my brothers a few days ago, and Hawkgirl was on screen in this pink minidress. I didn't even think about it, it slipped out. I said, "Oh, she looks GOOD." My brothers were in the room, and they just started laughing. I'm known for making random comments. My mom dropped a cup and mumbled something about "in front of her brothers" and "impressionable children". Subtlety's never been my strong point. I was out of the closet before I was in it.
