Electra Complex

ChickenPie says last night in the car: "Mommy, remember when you were a little girl, and I was a Mommy, and *I* got to sit next to Daddy in the car? *sigh* I love Daddy." Yes, Electra, I know you love your Daddy.

My sister replies to me, "Chicken Pie and her cousin should get together to discuss how upsetting it is to have another adult married to their true love..."

The day before Valentine's Day we were shopping at Target for a few things. ChickenPie had to go pee, so Daddy took her to the bathroom, and I kept shopping with Sassafras in tow. While looking for a hairbrush for ChickenPie's gift (we ended up with a 'Dora the Explorer' brush) I heard them coming back across the store. Tracy has this great way of locating me: he has a very loud click sound that he makes with his tongue against the roof of his mouth. It is louder than anyone else's tongue click that I've ever heard. So he does this until he gets close enough that I can yell out, "over here!" and we find each other. Hey, it works well for us.

Anyhow, ChickenPie must have thought this was a very cool thing, because she was trying to imitate him. She can't yet figure out how to make a tongue click sound, being only two, so she imitated it in word form. I hear her yelling out as loud as she can across Target, "COCK! COCK!" repeating again and again. Yeah, life is entertaining with a two year old!
