To continue our Ode to Livi, I feel compelled to add one more story.
If ever my little girl should burp or the other option, I always say "Excuse you, little lady!"
Last night, I confess, I myself burped (this hardly ever happens. I am very lady-like and rarely give in to such mortal weakness). I said "Pardon me."
Olivia was next to me. She gasped very dramatically! And then proclaimed:
"Excuuuuse youuuu, litt.... BIG lady!"
I laughed so hard I almost died. That comment alone has made my year.
P.S. Liv just barely headed out to play with her big brother and other neighborhood friends. She roared when she turned the corner and they all screamed in very realistic terror. She laughed and said "Guys, it's just your friend Olivia! Really, Guys, it's just your friend Olivia!"
