Y’all, I am so glad I decided to wait until Thursday to do Tail-Wagging Tuesday, ’cause if I had done it on time, I wouldn’t have this perfect, what’s the word, vignette maybe? to share, that pretty much says it all about our other dog Kodi, aka, not-our-favorite dog.
Let me set the scene for you: close your eyes and imagine….my husband has been gone since early last week….my kids have been sick (like vomiting and cha-cha sick) since last Friday…today would be the first day of a certain time of the month, if you know what I mean….and I’ve had a sinus headache for about 2 weeks now. Are you with me so far?
I’m talking to Hunky, finding out that instead of getting home tomorrow around lunch like all the other crews on this trip, my husband will be then making a return trip to Somewhere Cold And Dark to pick up some more stuff before coming home again. So he won’t get home until around the kid’s bedtime. Which is not a big deal, but still – rarrr – this is probably one of the worst times of the day for him to come home – early enough to get the kids riled up right before bedtime, but late enough to miss all the kid-related chores. But I digress….
So I’m talking to him, and hear O calling from my room, where he has quiet time so that he can go to the bathroom without waking Y up. O has peed in his pants. Then I hear Y crying, so go to get him, and am hit with the cha-cha stench as I open his door.
We’re talking cha-chas all over the place.
So I change him, hang up the phone with Hunky, and, to get him to stop crying, ask if he wants to have a bubble bath. Through his tears, he says yes. So I bring them downstairs, start the bathwater, and run back up before getting them in the tub to grab the dirty diaper and sheets and clothes and blankets.
But wait…something’s missing. I don’t see the dirty diaper anywhere in the boys’ room. And why would I? WHY WOULD I WHEN KODI (DEFINITELY NOT MY FAVORITE DOG, AND NEVER WILL BE) HAS DRAGGED IT INTO THE PLAYROOM, WHERE SHE IS HAPPILY EATING THE CONTENTS WHILE MANAGING TO ALSO SPREAD THEM ALL OVER THE CARPET??!!!!
And that’s just the kind of dog Kodi is.
I’m not so sure you can call this a vignette, maybe a saga instead, but bygones.
**On the sick kids topic, O is actually feeling much better, and is back to his usual sweet self. Y, however, has had cha-chas for almost a week now, and has been just feeling rotten. If you pray, could you please pray that he would be feeling better soon? I just feel so bad for him, and so helpless to do anything but try to make him drink pedialyte, hold him for most of the day, and pray.
