Today is Averi's 4th birthday!
Happy birthday to "My Little Everything"!
Just so you know, Esther is "My Everything", Averi is "My Little Everything", and Cici is "My Littlest Everything"! ...That's a lotta "Everythings"!
Shortly after she was born, I commemorated Avi's birthday in UNCLE SCROOGE (IDW) #40, the last Uncle Scrooge I did for IDW, as a car's license plate!
One thing that *I* found VERY amusing was when she was spending last weekend with us...
I had promised to take Averi to the park playground as we do every visit, weather permitting, but only after we had lunch, and I was finished with my coffee.
Naturally, she kept wanting me to hurry up all through the meal! The reminders came fast and furious, but in the cutest sort of way.
Finally, it was time to go. She was warmly dressed, but I was not - and, having gotten a taste of the cooler air, turned back from the end of the front walk to grab a more suitable jacket. But, Avi would brook no further delay...
"Yeh-Yeh, I thought we were going!"
"We are, Avi... I just had to get a different jacket!"
"Come on, Yeh-Yeh, let's go!"
"We're going now... Tell me something, when you're older and you get married, are you going to do this to your husband?"
"Because it's rude!"
"Really? If it's so rude, why would you do it to me?"
"Because I know you love me!"
She's got me there! There are no words... Just NO WORDS to reply to THAT! Only laughter!
Oh, yeah... There's that Thanksgiving 2021 thing too! Care to guess what I'M MOST THANKFUL FOR?
