Sissy has gotten into this new "habit" (?) of saying the name of an object or food, and then immediately following that with "I wuv ____". For example, she'll say "Oh, chicken nuggets. I wuuuv chicken nuggets." If it's a food, sometimes, she'll also rub her tummy and say, "Yummy."
But it's everything. The other day, we were in the back yard and she picked up a leaf. "Weaf. I wuuuv weafs." (and I know it's spelled weaves, but that's the way she says it.)
She has also taken to spontaneously telling me, the Evil Twin or Buddy, "I wuv you." and give us kisses. I just think it's the cutest thing. She can also be pretty demanding for hugs.
Luckily, she's as cute as a button, so I don't mind indulging her.
I know one thing Sissy wouldn't love and that's a scumbag thief.
A fellow blogger and close personal friend of ours (I'm not going to link to his blog because he's been on hiatus for a while and I want to protect his privacy, too) had his home burgled in broad daylight earlier in the week as he and his wife were at work.
This friend of ours is in his early 20s and used to work with the Evil Twin. They became friends, despite the age difference. In fact, the Evil Twin is a few years older than our friend's own father. But, neither one of them acts their age and I think they bonded somewhere in the middle.
Our friend was born and raised here, but found a good job a few states over and moved. He and the wife bought a house, settled in and started on the regular routine about a year or so ago... I can't remember exactly.
He came home from work to find a busted window and blood in his house with half their shit missing. I guess the dirtbag got cut on the way in (good!). Whoever it was took his wife's laptop that had two years worth of school work on it - among other items (their Wii, assorted electronics).
All this stuff he and his wife had worked hard for.
Someone violated their home, their sanctuary for what most likely is drug money.
The police did get blood samples and lift fingerprints. I hope it will lead to something conclusive. In the meantime, they do have homeowner's insurance.
It's a shitty reason to need it, though.
So, if you could keep my friend and his wife in your good thoughts, prayers, what have you, I'd appreciate it.
