With a "Waaah! Waaaah!" here (and a "Woot!")

Kate has been complaining a lot when I change her diaper. I think it's not so much that she hates getting her diaper changed, but that she doesn't like being interrupted. She's busy playing and gets dragged off to the changing table. Of course she's going to fuss. "Mom, you're cramping my style!" (In fact it was while she was on the changing table, hollering at me with her mouth wide open, that I first noticed that she had a molar up in the back.) So, I've been singing Old MacDonald to her to distract her. She's got quite a repertoire of animal sounds now, which makes for a very interesting farm. It goes something like this:

Me: "Old MacDonald had a farm, E-I-E-I-O. And on that farm he had a ... tiger! What does a tiger say?"

Kate: "Raah!"

Me: "E-I-E-I-O!"

The farm is populated by the typical cows, sheep, and chickens, but has also been known to feature monkeys, crocodiles, and even dolphins.

We finally heard back from Olympia (actually we called them, since we got tired of waiting). Doug didn't get the job. So I suppose we'll be here for a while longer, yet. This is not a bad thing. It's been a good place for us.

And I have news! I'm going to be a digi-designer! I've got this firefly kit that I've been working on (the bug, not the TV show) for weeks now, and finally finished. More-or-less finished. I may end up doing a little more with it. Anyway, I contacted the owner of one of the online digital scrapbook shops, sent her my kit, and she liked it! She liked it a lot, even! She asked me to join their team. Wheee! Now I get to spend even more time on the computer! Details to follow.

Sounds like a fun little farm Kate has there. Sorry Doug didn't get the job, their loss. And congrats on the digi-gig!
