2009 - Day 2

I just ran to Winco for some taco making supplies for tonight's shindig with old friends. I took A along and left M at home with Kris. I love how my kids immediately seek each other out after short absences away from one another.

As soon as we got in the door A was off like a shot to find her sister. They circle around each other like denizens of the local dog park, tails wagging, sidelong glances only, nothing too direct; me half expecting them to sniff each others' butts, as they quiz one another about what's transpired over the past 35 minutes.

They probe cautiously, expecting the other one to have transformed in some significant way during this absence.

Dogs are so funny... it's like they are quizzing each other "Did you leave pee-mail anywhere? Did you receive any pee-mail? Did you leave a package for anyone we know????"

Whoops, I should have explicitly said those kids are my actual children. I tried to use an analogy and made my children appear to be dogs.

Pee-mail. That's pretty good.

LOL!!! No it's probably my fault... I was watching the last night of the week long Dog Whisperer Marathon... I had previously told my own son to SIT...

Hey! We'll be in KW sometime Friday afternoon. Probably pretty early in the day. Flying to FLL on Thursday and staying in Homestead that night. Up early and ready for some fun!
