HANK-0-RAMA

[Hank: A Random Sunday Morning]

Male Actor in a Lead Role - "The Husband": Portrayed enthusiastically by Hank

Bio: Hank is an anomaly of sorts. For the most part he moves slower than molasses in January, yet when it comes to matters of the brain, his synapses connect at lightning speed! Perhaps the most intelligent, profound man I know, he never fails to amaze me. One minute he's effortlessly composing a Shakesperian sonnet, and the next he's rattling off Yankee baseball scores and batting averages from 1978 as if it were yesterday's news. Computing rare equations in his mind at rapid speed is another hidden talent [Hank mentally computed the compounded property taxes before our loan officer could even punch in the numbers on his calculator!]

And did I mention that he's funny too? For those who know me well, you know darn well that you gotta make me laugh to keep me happy and sassy. And boy do I laugh with Hank. Most often sarcastic, he enjoys making Seinfeld-ish jokes and quips. And he's quite good at it too.

An overachieving father, he has boundless energy and P A T I E N C E for all of the shenanigans of our two babies. Play Barbies? Sure! Read a book with funny voices? No problem. Spin me around Daddy? Of course, sweetheart. And he does all of this with a smile.

Favorite Sayings: "Yes Mastah"

ALLIE CAT

[Allie Cat: A Peaceful Day at the Beach]

Female Actress in a Supporting Role - "The Daughter": Portrayed dramatically by Allie Cat

Bio: Allie Cat is a Drama Queen. No doubt about it. At 3 1/2 years of age, this girl makes her needs and wants known to all. And you'd better watch out if this girl doesn't get what she wants....(see "Yes Mastah" above). While she can be feisty and sassy, she can also retreat into shy, timid sweetness. She loves her brother dearly and she loves showering him with kisses. A creative type at an early age, she once told me that a banana looks like a crescent moon.

Allie Cat also has an affinity for enjoying the more simple things in life too. What I consider to be a cacophony of noise, she finds appreciation in the song of a blue jay or dove. While I may step on an army of ants, Allie will take time to watch them build their fort with utter amazement. A curious cat at best.

Favorite Sayings: "Don't be fussy Henry," "I wuv you Mama," "I want candy," "Let's have a pic-pic"

Favorite Gestures: "sigh," "hand wave of dismissal," "eye roll" (oftentimes paired with the 'sigh')

PONY BOY

[Pony Boy: Swingin' Through the Air]

Male Actor in a Supporting Role - "The Son" Played Devilishly by Pony Boy

Bio: Boy oh boy. Here comes trouble. This 30 pound toddler will keep even the fittest athlete in shape. Turn your back for one eensy, teensy moment and the toilet becomes an oasis of fun. Blink your eyes and dinner's on the ground. And just as exasperation is about to take over, Pony Boy smiles and/or laughs with that gleam in his eyes. And then I'm mush. Man oh man.

Spend your life with Pony Boy and enjoy the simple things in life like:

  • turning on the oven to 500 degrees
  • changing the phone ring to a mysterious song
  • throwing cell phones in the trash
  • playing with those mysterious three-pronged holes in the wall
  • chewing on the remote control rendering it useless
  • flinging mama's underwear around the room
  • unrolling an entire roll of scotch tape
  • playing with mama's "stickers" (feminine pads) (!)
  • eating dried-up food scraps from under the table
  • licking daddy's shoes

Favorite Sayings: "haa haaa haaa ahhhh," "chuckle," "snort," "guffaw"

Favorite Gestures: "milk" and "more" in sign language, head nodding and emphatic head shaking "no"
