A Sammi Funny

So this is old news if you read my post on Facebook last week, but I'm still chuckling over it.  This is the 2nd exciting new developmental milestone I alluded to in my post on Monday.  I guess technically it's not a milestone, but to me it is.  It's that moment when you realize that your kid, like other kids of the same age, can come up with some unbelievable, innocently funny stuff coming out of their mouths, the kind of stuff you read on the last page of Parents Magazine - you know, those unintentional double entendres, those misunderstandings that result in a gaffe that keeps on giving.  Hehehe.

Maybe I'm making more of it than it is, but hey, indulge me. 

Samantha has a childproof door handle on the inside of her bedroom door.  It's ostensibly to keep her from wandering around.  I actually don't think she would anymore, but I worry more about her possibly getting up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night and falling and getting hurt in her sleepy haze. 

At any rate, she closed herself in her room while playing one morning last week, unable to get out.

Sammi:  Mommy, open the door!

Me:  What's the magic word?

Sammi (without missing a beat):  Abracadabra!

I was floored, having been caught completely off-guard by her response.  The incident will probably be ingrained in my memories forever, as such a typical moment.  Trust me, I grasp on to those typical moments when I can get them, and have found that they occur with more and more frequency these days.  And I am proud.
