The four year old is a master of slapstick. Anything that evokes a laugh from anyone will be repeated until everyone stops laughing and starts being annoyed. But the eight year old has been rather late to the humor world, complaining bitterly if anyone laughs at any thing she says or does.

Until this afternoon, that is. She has a friend over to play and ended up officiating at the marriage of two dog beanie toys: "Pluffy Mint" (not a typo) and "Puppy." At the finale, she solemnly intoned "you may now lick the bride!"

When we laughed, she looked rather pleased with herself, then explained to us morons "that's what dogs do, you know.
