The Dog Days of Winter

While walking in from the car...

Sarah (in an epiphany moment) : "You know since Larry isn't allowed upstairs, he'll be able to see Santa when he comes."

Darren (clearly having given that fact some significant thought): "I know! That's just one of the reasons why I wish I was a dog...."

Mommy (with interest piqued): "What are some of the other reasons you wish you were a dog?"

Darren: "Reason One: No school. Reason Two: Dogs are colorblind..."

Mommy (interrupting): "Why would you want to be colorblind?"

Darren: "Face it, Mom. Some colors are really just yucky. Reason Three: They all get to see Santa."

Lookout Larry seems ready for his Christmas Claus report...

That's the kind of logic you really can't even fight against. ;)

Some days I'm completely convinced that you make this stuff up! Haha!! They are so adorable... I love "hearing" the stuff they come up with!

Laura said...

OMGOsh! How funny! You know, now that I know about Scott's past, it all just makes so much sense now :)
Darren is quite the natural comedian.

There is a great book called "My Dog Never Says Please" by Suzanne Williams - my girls love this book. It is funny! Oh to be a dog!

I'm with Laura, wondering which colors are yucky.

My kids always set out a favorite stuffed animal to meet Santa.

Since I hadn't pursued the "yucky" color question at the time, posed the query to He-Twin this morning.

Apparently, pink and yellow are the big losers. ;)

Makes total sense to me! I find the color pea green revolting.
