Hey, Granma

And this, for the first time.

Walking with Smiles and Voice in the alley, en route home from school.

Smiles: "Mamma?  Mamma?  Is this rock a crystal?"

Elderly woman passing by, to me: "Oh, is he saying 'grandma?'  How cute.  Your grandchildren are so beautiful."

Voice's song

In Appalachia Bluegrass meets Balladeer meets gravelly blues, my 8 year old sings this long song, making it up as she goes, over 10+ minutes of car ride.  I capture only this much:

Chihuahua, Chihuahua
biting at fleas
Chihuahua, Chihuahua
bite til it bleeds
Chihuahua, Chihuahua
licks and it howls
Chihuahua, Chihuahua
blood on its jowls

Love love love
Love love love
little dog

(this is a mere snippet)

Voice, to BF: Do you have numchucks?
Bow, interrupting: No, he doesn't.
