Barbie Couch

Yesterday I spent part of my afternoon watching my niece and nephew so their mom could take a break and catch up on things she'd been putting off.

My nephew was asleep for most of the time, so it was my niece and myself for the better part of the time I was there.

We painted some rocks together for a craft project, and when we were finished I asked her what else she'd like to do.
"Let's play Barbies!" was her reply.
We went up to her room and she was very specific on which ones we'd be taking downstairs to play with.

We came back down and she decided they were going to all go on a "camping trip". So it was a Barbie slumber-party on the living room floor.

While they were 'setting up camp', they all took a break to "chat" and sat down on the couch...
which was conveniently similar looking to my leg:

Anyway, we played Barbies for a little while when I heard a "POP" noise come from the kitchen.
I knew what it was, but I made a funny face anyway.
My niece said, "Oh, that's just the 'fridgerator. It makes that noise."
I said, "I thought it came from you".
She replied, "No it's makes ice and does that".
I told her, "Well, I thought maybe you made ice with your butt".
She laughed and said, "Uncle Ferretnick*, you make me laugh so hard that sometimes I cry!"

She's almost four years old and saying things like that? She's such a trip!

* Obviously, she didn't call me "uncle Ferretnick", but I avoid using real names on here as much as possible.

Looks like unemployment is agreeing with you - LOL.

Listening to concert bootlegs and playing with Barbies.

*sigh* It's a tough life.
