Part of what drew us to the name Lucille is comedienne Lucille Ball. Not only was she extremely talented, but she was a very motivated, brave and strong woman. Characteristics I want my daughter to have. However, I truly wonder sometimes if Lucille Ball’s spirit was reincarnated into our daughter’s body as a result of this. Everything Lucille Bea does is to get a reaction! She loves to make people laugh. Here are a couple recent stories.
At Christmas we played a Christmas trivia game. When we knew an answer we had to raise our hands. Lucille caught on real quick and started raising her hand whenever my brother in law would start asking his questions. Then she’d look around to see who thought it was funny that she was playing along.
Our dog’s name is Santana Banana but we sometimes call her Doot-Banan. Lucille pronounces it “Doo Doo Mon”. Like some Rastafarian poop man.
Lucille loves milk. She also calls every beverage milk, or more accurately “miiiww”. Whenever she finishes her drink she runs to the gate that separates the dining room and kitchen, tosses her sippy cup over it, yells “miiiww!” as if placing an order and then runs full speed to the couch where she sits and waits for her order to be delivered.
Have I also mentioned she’s a walking fashion statement?
