I Am The Puppet Master

What we have here is solid evidence that I am not yet mature enough for motherhood.  I love hanging out with my small friend Lucas, but my instinct is to use him for my own amusement- sort of like a volatile, drooling toy.  On this particular night he fell into a deep sleep while I was holding him, and I proceeded to use him as a puppet.  (Thanks to Shieh-Jian for the video!)

I can offer no reasonable explanation for the Mr. Hanky voice.

This evening, when Ellen handed Lucas to me she said to him, "Go sit with your crazy Aunt Kate". 

Ain’t that the truth.

    You are a fabulously crazy Aunt Kate (or Kitty as the case may be). Keep it up.

    Kate, looking at the video again I think it’s not the puppeteering that is the problem. I was sitting right next to you laughing my ass off during the filming of the video, and I can attest that your Mr. Hankey voice was in sync with Lucas’s mouth.
