Pleased to meet you, Ice Cream

I just put the Girl Child to bed and I wanted to record this quickly, before I forgot it. We were going downstairs, after saying good night to her brother, to have some dessert and watch some Yankees baseball and we had the following exchange:

Me: Would you like some pudding?

Her: The green kind?

Me: No, the other one.

Her: The butterscotch?

Me: Yes. [Ed. Note: The sugar free butterscotch jello pudding is like crack for the low carbers. Pure crack, I tell you]

Her: No [long drawn out and contemplative]. I'm into introducing myself to some ice cream.

Me: What did you say?

Her: I'm into introducing myself to some ice cream. I think I'll share with Mamma.

I really had to ask her to repeat herself. I just could not quite believe what she said or how she said it.

"Introducing myself..." What is WITH this kid?

Your girl is the cutest!! Give her an extra hug and kiss. Just because you'll feel like it...

Frinklin, I couldn't believe it either. That's why I had to ask her to repeat herself.

Well, TS, she's young yet and she may grow out of it. ;)

Thanks, Jester, you bet I will!

She has the right idea. I think we should all introduce ourselves to some ice cream. Then take a nap.

That's so *adorable*, Random! Makes my womb clench... :::sighs::: Ya know, nobody warned me that ramping up to menopause meant my womb was going to clench every 5 seconds or so! Nature's way of saying, "The two-minute warning just went off but you still have a chance! GO FOR IT!"

Oh, man, she's adorable! And polite... after all, she wants to introduce herself, doesn't she?

I hope she doesn't grow out of it all too much! :)

Very cute Random. I wish I had her way with words!
