So, we have all gotten to know the members in my home: Mr. Molly Lou, Mini #1, Mini #2, Darby (imaginary friend), Sam (imaginary friend), and Dorothy (goldfish). Now, let's introduce TWO more: Sam the dog and Sam the cat. (Have I mentioned that Mini #1 has a slight obsession with naming things Sam?)
Sam the dog joined our family last Friday. He is an adorable black lab puppy that has a red collar and "has so much love." (Mini #1 words exactly.) Mini #1 fell in love with this adorable dog and we made it our own. It as been so long since I had a dog in the house, I forget how much work they are. Mini #1 hasn't had one allergic reaction to him...must be meant bo be. Full of stuffing and all...he came from Build-a-Bear Workshop. No, I did no have a complete mental breakdown and get a real dog.
Sam the dog has gone everywhere with us. Mini #1 insisted that G.G. (my grandmother that we went to see this weekend) hold him and pet him. He has bowls for his food and water and loves to sleep with Mini #1. He has to go in to his doghouse sometimes when Mini #1 needs a break.
Now, Sam the cat just came to us yesterday afternoon after coming alive from a picture that Mini #1 drew. Now, Sam the cat has three ears and four eyes. Yes, you read that right-three ears and four eyes. Not only do we have imaginary friends and now pets, we are an equal opportunity imaginary friend house and accept all creatures, disabled or not.
With this menagerie that has become my home, we are running out of room and funds to feed and house these "beings." I am thinking there isn't really enough room for me and they might not even know I'm gone if I made an escape.
It wouldn't be until a child needed a drink, lost toy, or diaper change, an imaginary friend needed a snack (apparently Darby gets sick from grapes) or a ride (Sam is still exhausted from his walk from PA). or a pet needed fresh water, clean tank, or a trip to the vet (what do you suppose the long term effects are from three ears and four eyes?) Mr. Molly Lou better be extra nice to me or he is going to be hating life when he is solely responsible for two children, three pets, and two imaginary friends.
My bags are packed!
