A doggy?

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.
