After reading Clifford the Big Red Dog while the girls ate spaghetti for dinner, Lauren and I had the following conversation.
Lauren: I have a dog!
Mommy: You do? Really?
Mommy: Who is your dog? (I was expecting her to say Daisy, Grammy & Pa's dog.)
Lauren: Um, Millie.
Mommy: Millie? Nice name. What color is Millie?
Mommy: Must be a pretty doggy. What does Millie like to do?
Mommy: What does Millie eat?
Mommy: Just like you! What else does Millie like to do?
Lauren: He likes to play.
Mommy: What do you play together?
Mommy: Does Millie go to school with you?
Mommy: Do the other kids at school have dogs, too?
Mommy: Do they bring their dogs to school, too?
I guess we are thisclose to having imaginary friends in our house. Maybe Lauren will be like her Auntie Kelle and have 3 pink piggies following her around.
