Whirlwind has been talking quite a bit about Santa Clause. And most recently she has been talking about asking Santa for a dog.
I think I nipped it in the bud.
I told her that “Dogs have to be walked and fed and bathed and Mommy already has to walk, feed and bathe you and Baby Bot and I don’t want to do that for a dog too.”
Whirlwind looked a little spaced out by that answer.
So I told her we would talk about it again when she was eight.
Is this selfish of me?
Animals aren’t really my thing. In fact I am reading a book right now that has a little too much “horse talk” for my liking. Don’t get me started on talking animals.
