Mackenzie also found a new friend

Only problem is…

He’s a balding yellow man with a uni brow and an orange nose. Also, he has just three fingers and a thumb on each hand.

Yes, that’s right, the muppet nobody loved has found a place in Mackenzie’s heart.

I bring you… “Buh” :

After some reflection, I did come up with a few things that endear him to my daughter:

– It’s always nice to find someone with even less hair than yourself.

– He wears shoes. Don’t underestimate the power of shoes to a 1 year old who can consistently identify them.

– His pants happen to be green. Green happens to be the only color Mackenzie reliably identifies. So about 13 times a day, she proudly points to his pants and says “pahn!” Then with a sly smile and a calculated head nod, she follows it up with the triumphant “geeeeen!”

– His unibrow has actually come in handy. Unfortunately for Bert, Mackenzie uses it as a convenient handle for towing him around the house.

– She’s too young to cringe at the ivory mock turtleneck he wears.

Of course, the relationship goes both ways, as any good relationship does. Things Bert gets out of it:

– Lots of love. More love than he’s had in his whole life, probably. Until Mackenzie, everyone favored Ernie and I’m sure that fact was not lost on poor Bert.

– His teeth brushed regularly.

– Diaper changes around the clock.

    June is always a hard month to lose friends. The great thing is that technology is around to do better at keeping in touch and that we can always make new friends…although I look forward to putting down roots and having the same friends and neighbors for a while! Good luck these next months! I hope they aren’t too lonely for you! Do you know Michelle Uhler? (She lived next to me?) She’s in the same boat! Very sad that all the friends have gone….maybe you should talk!

    I don’t want to be the one to tell you, but I feel compelled: Bert is evil. He’s a terrorist.
