Dear Kid,

Puppy: It’s time to get up
Me: I am up
Puppy: You’re lying on the floor
Me: I’m snuggling you
Puppy: But it’s time to get up!
Me: I’m very comfortable
Puppy: Up, up, up!
Me: Ok, ok. I’m getting up
Puppy: You don’t want to snuggle me?

Puppy: What are you getting out of the cabinet?
Me: A container for my lunch
Puppy: What else are you getting out of the cabinet?
Me: Not sure I’m getting anything else out
Puppy: There are treats in that cabinet
Me: Hmmm, there certainly are
Puppy: I thought you might have forgotten
Me: I haven’t forgotten
Puppy: So……
Me: Do you need a treat?
Puppy: Well, I wouldn’t say no
Me: Here you go
Puppy: Look how nicely I’m taking this.
Me: Yes, you are a very good boy.
Puppy: Good enough for another treat?

Puppy: Mom
Me: Yes, sweetie
Puppy: Mom, Mom, Mom
Me: Yes, sweetie, what do you need?
Puppy: Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom
Me: I’m right here. What do you need?
Puppy: There are noodles on the counter
Me: Yes, there are
Puppy: I can smell them
Me: I’m sure you can
Puppy: Can I have some?
Me: No, they are not for you.
Puppy: Please?
Me: No.
Puppy: Please, please, please, please, please. I love noodles. I love noodles.
Me: I know you do. But they’re not for you.
Puppy: Come with me, I’ll show you
Me: You don’t have to show me
Puppy: But I LOOOOOOVE noodles.
Me: You love all food. This is not for you.
Puppy: This is my sad face.

Me: Come over here, Puppy. Time to cut your nails.
Puppy: Nah, I’m good, thanks
Me: Come on over, sweetie.
Puppy: I’m very busy not going over there.
Me: I have treats
Puppy: Huh?
Me: I have the Really Good treats
Puppy: They smell so good!!!!!!
Me: You get one if you come over here
Puppy: Well, I might have a minute

Puppy: Mom!
Me: Mmmm?
Puppy: I smell Spring!
Me: You do?
Puppy: Yes, and I rolled in it just for you!
Me (pause): Oh, honey. That is Definitely Not the smell of spring.

Off to Bath Time.

Love, Mom
