Audrey's response to almost anything, is "10-hundred 58". You have to say it out loud, to get the effect.
For example: "Audrey, what happened?"
"I was talking to Ben and I said "Please" 10hundred58 times and he still won't do it!"
More importantly, this number comes into play when we talk about love.
"I love you, my girl." "How much?" "So much, it's bigger than the world." "I love you, Mommy, 10hundred 58."
This morning we were playing, she was climbing in and out of my lap, we were talking about her Littlest Pet Shop. The insidiously cute Littlest Pet Shop, so cute you can't stand it, so cute that I am addicted too. I can't even walk down the toy aisle where they live without caving.
We were visiting the website, then playing a matching came on the computer. I left her to do something else, so Dad filled in.
Oh, yes, the man who wears a badge and carries a gun to work was playing the Littlest Pet Shop matching game.
Even after she moved on to find out where I went.
The love question came into play again.
We went through our bit..."More than the world." "10hundred58." I hugged her, and pointed to her father at the computer.
"Go, ask Daddy," I told her. She climbed up into his lap.
"I love you, Daddy."
"I love you, too."
"How much?" she asked.
"10hundred59," he replied. Why have I never thought of that?
He is sometimes so logical, it's maddening.
Then there are times he's so logical, it's perfect.
