Hey, Dog Breath!

Its my fault, of course. I should have listened to her.

"Mama, I want crackers, puhleeze?" she asked, oh so sweetly.

But I just continued making egg salad sandwiches and replied, "No, Annelie. Lunch is almost ready."

Normally I'm quick to hand out a little snack when my over-active, high-energy kids are hungry. After all, they need lots of fuel in order to power their little bodies to drive me crazy. But, as I was 2.5 seconds away from being done preparing lunch, I didn't think asking Annelie to hold out would be that big a deal.


Annelie: I want crackers, Mama!

Me: Annelie, it's not time for crackers. Go play. Lunch is almost ready.

Annelie: I want crackers! [stomps feet] NOW!

Me [getting impatient]: I said no. No means no.

Annelie: Crackers! I want it!

Me [eyes beginning to bulge out of skull]: Stop asking. I said no.

Annelie [as if dying]: Maaaaaamaaaaaaaa. Puhleeze, want crackers now! Puhhhhhleeeeeeeze...."

Me [bulging eyes twitching in charming yet psychotic way]: Get out of the kitchen. Right. Now.

With a mother like me, its no wonder my two year old needs to forage Chez Hopkins for some grub of her own. Because otherwise, she'd starve, right?

But if it is good enough for a four year old German Shepard/Malamute, then its good enough for a two year old starving child. Who, by the way, wouldn't even touch her lunch.

Me: [sigh]

Happy Friday!

LOL! Kids! I don't think mine would eat the cat food (no dog) here. But I do happen to know that stickers will pass through their systems whole. And my cactus isn't poisonous. But a nutritious home made meal, EWWW! sigh.

Seriously...start the wedding planning now, because I think she and Merrick are destined for each other. He is constantly stealing Sissy's (our 13 year old Goldie's) Kibble. He even tries to steal her Milkbones. Daddy thinks it's funny to give him Milkbones to teethe on. The kid runs around with doggy biscuits in his mouth. I have to feed Sissy and then ban Merrick from the kitchen so she can eat a meal in peace. Payback though...she steals food from him too.

Too funny! Write it down now for her scrapbook so you don't forget it. This is a classic to tell all her boyfriends when she turns "teeny"!
