the oprah voice

annabelle has an Oprah Winfrey voice. when oprah is announcing a guest or something fabulous, she always yells and holds the last word for a longer time than necessary
("you'll never guess who we have with us today...it's DR. PHIII-YULLLL!!!" as everyone goes crazy)

annabelle only uses her voice when Julian has something that she wants. she tries to distract him with something else, but he is on to her tricks. so she turns on the oprah voice.

"Juju, look what i have! It's DOOOOO-RRRRRAAAAA!" (holding up a Dora toy)

Julian didn't want to play with Dora. Dora had been laying at his feet for 30 minutes without so much as a glance from him, but once the oprah voice comes out, all of a sudden, Dora is very very appealing.

i am working on perfecting my oprah voice, saved for bedtime.
"hey kids, guess what time it is??? BED-TIIIIIIIIME!!!! WOOT WOOT WOOT!!!"

maybe that will make the 11 hours of separation from Mommy and Daddy, involving lying still and not eating, playing, or talking....fun. probably not. but it's worth a shot.

My youngest has the Oprah clap down- when the show comes on and leaves, people clap, and so does she.
Hey, you haven't updated your photosite in a while. Curious lurkers would like a peek :)
