fun fun fun

Brian said, "I think someone is at the door, Victoria." Before E stepped in, Victoria gave a shriek of glee that eventually descended into human hearing range. Then for a good part of the next 12 hours or so there was a pink cloud of giggles, trinkets, and finery bumping through the house. It was a blast. Victoria is counting the minutes until aramintamd et al swing back through the neighborhood. Too bad Brian won't be here--he was this close to inviting K down to the Crown Sports Lounge to hang out. Well, this being a tiny space between my forefinger and thumb plus about 18 years. But she is a character!


You know this thing is going to turn into a My New House journal, don't you? I apologize in advance. Today I scheduled a home inspection and now I have to figure out how to work Victoria into this. Brian won't be in town. I think I will bring a new coloring book and crayons and bribe her like she's never been bribed before to behave. The Takoma Park inspector took about four hours to look at about 1500sf of weird old house. This house is newer and more normal but quite huge. So I'm betting it's another half-day affair.

If you want to drop Victoria off here next wed while you have your home inspection, we're just having playgroup so she'd have fun and you wouldn't have to worry about her not being good.

Wow. That goes way beyond nice, thanks! But I have begun the bribing process already and I think she's looking forward to it.

Believe me when I say every bit of that excitement was mutual on all fronts.

I think we were in the car maybe fifteen minutes before I heard "Are we going back to Victoria's?"

Repeated often, throughout the weekend.

We found two things E bought for her when we were at Dayton which didn't resurface until this morning, so I suspect an arrangement for connecting at our end this weekend would be a good thing!
