We went out to dinner last night, and Elena decided she didn't like the guy who seated us (this was at Thai Sushi Garden, for those of you currently or formerly local) - and she basically kicked up a fuss every time she saw him for the entire meal. It was miserable. She really ruined dinner. Then we took her home and she was whiny for the rest of the night. We take her out to eat all the time - she totally knows better. It was embarrassing and disappointing.

When I got home from work earlier, I heard her moving around upstairs (supposed to be "napping") - I went to see what was going on, and she had gotten an eyeliner pencil from my room and drawn whiskers on all her dolls. Including some with cloth faces. Maybe I'll try to clean them up, but I worry that the cloth will just smudge and those dolls will forever have grey dirty faces. We'll see. Maybe some of them will just keep their whiskers - we'll have to Have A Talk about it. (We draw whiskers on our own faces like this all the time. But usually with adult supervision. *ahem*)

So yeah.

At work this morning, we had a special event: Llamas in the Library. Yes, really - except it was just one llama. And they do indeed bring him IN to the library - right up the elevator. He was most intrigued by the mirror in the playroom and had to thoroughly check out this other llama who suddenly appeared. He was beautiful and very well-behaved, but we had more than 100 people in our small-ish space within one hour. I'm exhausted now.

And in an hour or so, we will get in the car and drive to Albany to pick up my mother, who is visiting for the next weekend, and whatever birthday festivities will be happening (which I still need to plan).

I am so sorry she was having a whiny night last night! And the thing with the dolls is hilarious but I can see where it would be frustrating.

Yay for llamas in the library, though! That's oddly awesome. If E likes llamas, you should take her to llamafest if it happens again this year. In Pownal. There are llamas. It's awesome.

I don't mind too much about the dolls - they are her dolls and it's kind of her problem to live with. :) And I think it was only one cloth doll, and it has no sentimental value or anything...... It is hilarious, in that stop-messing-with-my-stuff (i.e. my makeup) kind of way.

Those Pownal llamas might be the same llamas - this one lives in Stamford, apparently.

Cassie went through a stage of getting into my lotions, especially in the tricky time in the morning on weekends when I'm trying to snooze a little bit extra, and she ready to gogogogo! It was very frustrating.

And hey, you know you could have dropped her over here instead. We still owe you! Next time, for sure?

It was totally a spur-of-the-moment thing - I don't know what to cook, hey, let's go out! ;)

The library thing has totally reminded me of the llama at the dentist Sesame St. bit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sgkYHhG18uc

I suppose the dolls can just be playing perpetual dress-up :) Now they need cat costumes!

I'm glad they weren't old dolls of yours. Sarah's destroyed two of mine. My favorite is safely hidden in my closet, and she is never getting her hands on it. Not ever.

I'm not so upset when it isn't one of my toys, though the waste does bug me. One of my kids used an ink pen on the head and face of a new baby doll, with gruesome results. I couldn't get it off, and in the end I just threw it away. Grrr.
