P is for poke, apparently.

(I am sitting at the dining table working on my computer, and suddenly I get a jabbing feeling in my left side.)

Me: Iman! What are you doing?

(Iman grins and holds up her pink pencil)

Iman: I poking you!

Me: Yes, I can see that.  If you want to get my attention, say excuse me Momma!

Iman: Excuse me momma?

Me: Yes Iman?

Iman: Can I poke you?

    She is such a source of amusement that one. When I came over she managed to nearly break my internal organs with lots of jumping up and down upon my stomach and smushed her face against my cheek with a hilariously intense “I LOVE YOU!!” HAHA! Thanks for clarifying little woman, cuz I *thought* you were trying to kill me.

    Zari: only in retrospect! **rubs bigs, pregnant, pencil-poked belly!**

    Hemlock-lol! Yes, because if she had said please I *totally* would have said yes! :p

    Owl: Destroying internal organs is precisely how Iman loves people. She’s just that kind of girl.
