No Pie!

All day long this is what I heard from my little darling.

No Pie! ( but it sounds like Nooo Piiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!)

She LOVES this mother goose rhyme and even acts out the kitties when they "meow, meow meow!" So all day long at totally random moments she'd bust out with "no piiiiiiiiiiii!" and I just had to crack up hysterically.

Remember this one?

Three little kittens, they lost their mittens
and they began to cry,
Oh mother dear, we greatly fear
Our mittens we have lost!
What! Lost your mittens! You naughty kittens!
Then you shall have no pie!
meow, meow, meow!
No, you shall have no pie!

In our book the mother cat looks terribly mean too! When the kitties find their mittens in the next verse, Lizzy will get up and go to her drawer and "find" her own mittens, bringing them to me, just positively beaming. At which point I just fall over from all of her cuteness.

As her grammie always says, "she is such a character!"
That she is, that she is.
And she shall have some pie. but only if it has fruit in it.
