 We never know what to expect from these creatures. Have a look.

 I keep a look out while he snoozes.

Dis be  mine! You can't  have him.  Go away!

 But Oscar, I don't need protecting.

 Hey! No peeking!

 Here! This is the third time I've brought him back. Next time you do it!

There, there, it's all right. Next time I'll help you cross the street.

Smoochy kiss!


I was out walking with my 4-year-old daughter. She picked up something off the ground and started to put
it in her mouth. I took the item away from her and I asked her not to do that.

"Why?" my daughter asked.

"Because it's been lying outside, you don't know where it's been, it's dirty and probably has germs," I replied.
At this point, my daughter looked at me with total admiration and asked, “Wow! How do you know all this stuff?"

"Uh," ...I was thinking quickly. "All moms know this stuff. It's on the Mommy Test. You have to know it, or
they don't let you be a Mommy."

We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but she was evidently pondering this new information.

"Oh, I get it!" she beamed, "So if you don't pass the test you have to be the daddy."

"Exactly," I replied back with a big smile on my face and joy in my heart.


  1. Ha, wish Border Collies respected the "Mommy Test." Instead when Pips finds something on the ground and I shout "Drop it" she thinks I mean "Eat it fast!"

  2. That last picture--I think the dog got into the tunafish.
