Lula is a Terrible Parrot

On Tuesday night, I tried to teach Lula "Who's got two thumbs and wants a brownie? THIS guy."

It didn't work; she didn't get it. (She didn't understand, I mean. She got her brownie.) She never positioned her hands correctly and barely mastered a weak thumbs-up. I gave up after a couple of attempts.

Last night at dessert time, Lumpyhead decided he wanted a brownie. Lula was still eating her dinner, but piped up. "I want a brownie too!"

Then she added, "I have two thumbs."

Close, Lula Dear. Close.

That is awesome. Poor kid is going to grow up so confused.

When we first had kids, Alex and I considered consistently using a wacky name for something, like calling a door a woogywop just to mess with our kids' heads. I'm still a little sad that we didn't follow through with it.

I have to say that I've only heard a more "adult" version of the "having two thumbs" joke.

But, I like brownies too! And I'm practically all thumbs.

I'm with vuboq my version of the brownie joke involves oral sex.
