Tonight we were all in the hot tub. The girls were swimming/splashing and Gregg and I were talking. He was telling me about how he pruned the trees. We were fully attentive to them, holding them and helping them jump and swim as needed. They were playing and not really paying us much mind until Alex turned on the lights, and turned the lights to her favorite color.
A: MOMMY, DADDY! Look!
M: Yes, Alex we see. We are talking. Please do not interrupt. If you need something, please say, "Excuse me..."
A: Okay, okay. LOOOOOOOOOK!
G1: Alex, we see, we're talking. Are you being rude and impatient?
M: Yes, we see the aqua. It's pretty, but please don't be so demanding.
A: Okay, okay!
G2: HEY EVERYBODY! Everybody, TALK!!!!!
I looked up, with a WTF look on my face, and there she was, leaning back against the edge, fingers planted squarely in her ears, humming. And smiling.
Um, now, people do that. To be funny. Put there fingers in their ears and say, "lalalalalala" or whatever. WE don't. She has never seen this act. Where did she come from?????
