The girls and I went to the mall on Friday, to hunt down the ever-elusive perfectly fitting skinny jeans (which, by the way, we found. VICTORY!)
On the way home, the conversation turned to pets.
SweetZ: Why don’t we have a cat?
Me: We already have six animals, honey. We don’t need another one.
SweetZ: But none of them are my animal.
Me: I can share Abby and Ginger with you.
SweetZ: But they’re not cats.
Me: Well, that’s true.
SweetZ: I want a cat. An orange one. I will name her Peaches and she will be awesome and fluffy.
Me: But Daddy is allergic to cats.
SweetZ: What’s allergic?
Me: Allergic is when something makes your skin all itchy and you sneeze a lot.
SweetZ: Oh. That won’t be a problem [she pronounces this PLOB-blem] because Dad’s not allergic to awesome.
Hey, Hubster – how’re you gonna argue with that?

SweetZ made an excellent point! So when do you get a cat? 🙂
Ha! If we were to add another critter to our fold, I’m afraid it would upset the delicate ecosystem we have in our house right now (READ: there would be more animals than humans).
And that’s a problem because? Just kidding! We’re down to one cat and a granddog now. But things could change!
HA! My poor vacuum is already crying uncle!!
Wow, what can you say in argument of that. 🙂
Exactly. It’s bullet-proof.
Love it. I see a cat in your future.

LOL…gotta love kids. Tell T to just stock up on Benadryl. 😀 😀 😀
And I love it…plob-blem. It sounds so much better than problem…like a problem that isn’t important. And apparently allergies are not important in light of awesome.
WordPress hates me. I did comment, but it first wouldn’t post…and then it went to the Twilight Zone. 😦
Oops…there it is. I swear it wasn’t there when I made the second post. And I did refresh the page when I didn’t see it. See. Told you so. 🙂
LOL! Cracking up over here!
Myndi, you do know that Daddy’s wrapped around SweetZ’s finger already, don’t ya? I see a Cat in your near future girlfriend. I think she’s won the argument hands down. Here, kitty, kitty…
That’s the sweetest thing. Kids are adorable.
They come up with some pretty cute crap sometimes. SweetZ seems to especially have a knack for it. 🙂
