Dear Kid,

Puppy: Mom?
Me: Yes, baby?
Puppy: The Kid is coming home soon, right?
Me: Monday
Puppy: What’s a Monday?
Me: Soon
Puppy: Right. So I think we should celebrate
Me: Do you?
Puppy: Yes
Me: How do you propose we celebrate?
Puppy: With treats
Me: What sort of treats?
Puppy: Special treats
Me: Any particular sort of special treats?
Puppy: Carrots and peanut butter and bananas. And cheese.
Me: I see you’ve thought about this
Puppy: Yes
Me: Should I assume you’re offering to help eat the treats?
Puppy: Well, I AM part of the family
Me: I’ll think about it
Puppy: That means “no” doesn’t it?
Me: In this particular case, that means “no”
Puppy: (sigh)
Me: But maybe we can find you a piece of a carrot later
Puppy: That would be fan-TAS-tic!!!

Can’t wait to see you.

Puppy: Me too!

Love, Mom
