Watson is eating cherries and just enjoying it  

Milo :"did you know that fruits are plants' sex organs?"

Me:"I guess that's right"

Milo:"you don't have to tell me I'm right. I know I'm right. "

Leila's songs

We modify and sing songs. Here a couple:

Bah Bah Black goat have you any milk
Yes sir, yes sir three buckets full
One for the master and one for the dame, and one for the little boy who lives down the lane

Neigh neigh black horse have you any salami
yes sir yes sir three rounds full
One for the master and one for the dame and one for the hungry boy who lives down the lane

Moo moo black cow have you any steak
yes sir yes sir just cut some off
One for the master and one for the dame, and one for the hungry wolf who's very hungry

It gets so weird and butchery in the end, I wonder if I should be worried.

She also modified the Aerzte tune "Ekelpack":
Ich sage Euter, ich sage Euter, ich sage Euter, ich sage Euter Euter Ekelpack.

It's so weird but I find it endearing.

This Goat obsession is really getting to everyone. She counts off the goat names that were up for adoption around Christmas time at New Moon Farm:

Also note this whole thing about "Niemand wollte eine Ziege adoptieren" is pretend empathy she says. When she says it, she has to laugh behind her hands.

Leila is growing a fit about going to bed. She doesn't want to and instead wants to look up mine craft on YouTube. General screaming. 

Melissa:"you know what happens next?" - insinuating it's bed time.
Leila "you die!"

Leila obsessions

Leila has obsessions. She really gets into things. I mean really hard gets into things and she will incessantly talk about nothing else all the time.

The last obsession (also documented here) was the German Umlaute and French accents (the ßuß story being the epitome of that line of obsessing).

The latest obsession started fairly innocuously: we went to the goat cheese farm on Salt Spring Island. They had a cute farm attached to the goat cheese factory that you could tour. One of the cages had goats in it. There was one particularly adorable goat that would come up to me and want me to pet it. I pet its head. Leila was watching with concern. She didn't want to pet the goat. I kept petting it. I said "This goat is called Wätßön" just for fun because at that time Umlaute were still Leila's obsession.
She really didn't say anything more about the event. She didn't really talk about it until we got back and more and more starting talking about goats and was wondering aloud whether or not Wätßön missed us.
It got bad (there is a post on this below) when we went to the farmer's market and she began to pretend Watson was a goat.
We're now at the point where we have to look up pugetsoundgoatrescue and newmoonfarm every day to check if goats have been adopted.
We also talk about this sad story if goats aren't adopted for a while "keiner will eine Ziege adoptieren." and Leila looks very sad.

She also makes me pronounce the goat names in German. Her favorite right now is "Walter" and she keep saying that name in German.
