I faintly remember being 3. Twenty three years ago.
I am SO OLD.
But anyway. My gut reaction when I saw the PREGNANT on the piss stick was laughter and disbelief. Three+ years later, she still has that effect on me!
She went through a phase of leaving Leela out. And ripping her drawings.
Typical Violet face, ink and all.
Violet's current hobbies also include singing somewhat on key, hugging my leg and saying "I love you too" first, mixing up "Mommy" and "Daddy" and calling us "Dammy" and "Moddy", pushing her baby sister then hugging and kissing her immediately after to get out of time out, and saying things over and over and over and over and over and over and over, and being neurotic as shit about everything.
I saw an old friend today that I had only seen once since high school at some club or something. I told him "I don't get to do fun stuff like that anymore" but immediately after I said that I thought "Shit, I get to go down the slide at the zoo though! And go to bounce houses! And 'help Violet get unstuck in the McDonald's playplace'! And visit the swings on a regular basis!" Yep. Making Violet certainly changed me and the way I have fun, but she's actually pretty damn awesome and I wouldn't trade her for all the nights out in time.
Happy birthday baby girl!
