Dear Kid,

The baby has been very chatty lately.

Me: Come on, Puppy
Puppy: Shhhhhh….
Me: Excuse me?
Puppy: There’s something over there
Me: There is?
Puppy: I think it’s a moose
Me: It’s not a moose
Puppy: It might be
Me: There are no moose in this area
Puppy: I’ll go check it out
Me: You’ll stay right here
Puppy: Dang leash


Me: Hi, baby
Puppy: LOOK, MY TOY!! AND I’M RUNNING AROUND BECAUSE I’M SO HAPPY YOU’RE HOME!! I’M…wait a minute…you smell like cat. You smell like Two Cats
Me: Well, the people we were visiting had two cats
Puppy: Just wanted to be sure you knew I knew
Me: I know
Puppy: Ok. I’m still happy you’re home
Me: I’m happy to see you, too, baby.


Puppy: Scratch more
Me: I’m going to take a break now
Puppy: Scratch more
Me: I’ve been scratching for a long time
Puppy: Scratch more
Me: I love you, but I’m taking a break now
Puppy: I’ll be here when you’re ready to scratch more


Puppy: What are you doing?
Me: I’m eating lunch
Puppy: I want lunch
Me: Puppies don’t get lunch
Puppy: I like lunch
Me: You like any food, any time
Puppy: Right, so I would like lunch
Me: No lunch for Puppies
Puppy: Do not underestimate the power of the stare
Me: You can stare all you like, no lunch for you
Puppy: I have got to practice my stare…


Puppy: I have very special poop
Me: You do?
Puppy: Yes. I know because you pick it up and put it in the Special Poop Container
Me: The garbage can?
Puppy: And then the big truck comes and takes it to the Poop Museum. I have special poop
Me: Oh, puppy. Everything about you is special
Puppy: Does your poop go to the Poop Museum?


Puppy: What are you drinking?
Me: Soda
Puppy: Can I have some?
Me: No
Puppy: Why?
Me: Soda isn’t good for puppies
Puppy: Is soda good for you?


Puppy: Mommy!
Me: Yes, sweetie
Puppy: I love you.
Me: I love you too, sweetie pie.

Love, Mom
