Thanks, Smartass

My parents are in town for a two-week visit. It is both wonderful and horrible, just as all parental visits are.

My mother hasn't watched Sesame Street since I was little, so did not know who Abby Cadabby was when Lula brought over the doll.

Lula: Abbydabby!
Mom: Who?
Lula: Abbydabby!
Mom: I'm sorry, honey. I don't understand. What is this little girl's name?
Lumpyhead: Her name is Lula.

BTW, Lucy is only four and I don't know who the hell abbycadabby is let alone that one can purchase her in doll form.

I hope you know what a talented and hilarious writer you are. I have been instructed to "find more humor" in my parenting (thus decreasing the stress and decompressing moments) and I look to you for inspiration. Thanks!
