Elena is really into the planets right now (we have a good library book checked out now on the topic). Her favorites are Jupiter, Neptune and Pluto, because they all have P's in them and that's her favorite letter now. (And yes, she knows Pluto is a dwarf planet, but she still likes it.)

She fell down the other day and her knee got a little scraped up through her tights. I commented on it being a bit red, and she said, "It's like Jupiter's Great Red Spot." We started laughing, but she didn't like that, and told us not to laugh at her. (Of course, we assured her that we weren't laughing at her.)

This morning, she seriously informed me that her Great Red Spot was feeling much better today.

Eeee!!! How does one NOT laugh????? :)

OMG, Cassie does the same thing right now! She gets so mad at us when we giggle at something cute she said. I'm trying really hard to respect her dignity as a separate person with her own self, but it's so hard. And Jay has an even harder time with it, I think. He was trying to help her clean her room this morning, and just didn't get it when he moved things where he thought they should go instead of where she did, and she burst into tears in an expression of self-actualization. hee.

Great Red Spot is a way better euphemism than boo boo. :)

I can do a certain amount by turning my back, but sometimes I have to dip around a corner and double over a minute, before composing myself and returning to the conversation.
