I started the
birthday song thingee with Kenny when he turned 10 my
first year out here, and now that he's a few months
shy of 20 (what the hell is happening to the world),
I've adopted Lila as my honorary birthday song
recipient. However I've decided instead of the usual
birthday song to fit her name into random songs as her
name is rather poetic. Bay City Rollers for the
The entry however,
I must admit, is gonna be a little more diffiicult. I
was able to write to Kenny most of the years, but I'm
not really sure what's feasible for at least a few
more years. Though she is the most spookingly
intelligent 2 year old I've ever spent time with.
She's a bit small for her age to begin with, so when
full sentences come out at lightening speed as she
chomps down on edamame and california rolls, part of
you feels like you're watching a special effect ala
Benjamin Buttons. I have honestly seen 4-5 year
olds that don't have this type of grasp on
vocabulary/language and seeing a little kid WANT to
eat edamame and sushi? Huh? I love it. She has
raised the bar for any future offspring.
Other cute stuff:
kid rarely if ever watches TV. Since one of the only
things she has watched on it was an Obama speech she
calls the TV "bama". That's fun. She also called him
Curious George when she saw him the first time, which
is also really fun. Brotha looks like Curious George.
From the hairline to the ears, it's just completely
undeniable. Explosive as hell to say depending on how
much of a douchebag you are, but Lila is most
certainly not a douchebag - and that makes it very
birthday to Lila and hopefully these videos will make
her a bit less scared of me when I see her again. Heh.
I wonder if she can even connect that? Like, we've
skyped before - and I can't fathom how that processes
in a 2 year old brain. What seemed like
science-fiction magic when I was a kid, is now
completely commonplace. Crazy.
next week with the world-wide running vid and several
thoughts on Curious George being...human.
