I've noticed that I post frequently about the funny things that Daughter #2 does and says, and I don't mention Daughter #1 nearly as often. That's mainly because Lu is now old enough that she pays attention to the things that she says and does, whereas Jane has no such internal editor. The things she comes up with just come straight out. But Lu has her own kind of humor, and it's getting to be of an ever more sophisticated kind. The following is an exchange we had over email last night (While we were sitting no more than five feet away from another. We're a twenty-first century family for sure.)
I started it, sending her that picture with the subject "Your New Haircut" at 8:55 PM.
8:57: no thank u
8:57: I did not say it was an option.
8:58: i dont care!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
8:59: Did I forget to install the capital letters on your computer? Do I need to check your shift key to make sure it works?
9:01: it works i just dont use it
9:02: You need to use it. I paid for the whole computer and if you're not using the whole thing then I'm not getting my money's worth. If you don't start using it, I may have to let Jane use it with the Caps Lock key on just to give the capitals a workout.
9:04: What do u want from me?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
9:05: You are progressing nicely. Excellent use of a capital, although we English-speakers like to stick with just one punctuation mark at the end of a sentence.
(Also, u = you. Two extra letters makes all the difference.)
At this point I turned to her and said, "You only sent three periods?" and she said, "Yeah, like this," and gave me this incredible look of disdain. It was awesome, hilarious and perfectly appropriate. That was the most fun ten minutes of my day yesterday.
