Top-Ten Things the Dogs Think When They See Demon Baby


1. There he is. The one I told you about.
2. Do you think he'll give us Raisin Bran again if we look cute?
3. You know he once put his mom's diamond ring in our water bowl?
4. Yeah. Always naked. I'm not sure why either.
5. He must be really naughty today. Look . . . Mom's in her office lighting candles and praying for patience again.
6. When he goes to kindergarten, how long do you think until they expel him?
7. Here . . . let's go through the house and find all his secret stashes of candy.
8. Watch out if he tries to "feed" you things like candles, pennies, or rocks. Don't assume he's giving you food until you smell it first.
9. It's a good thing we don't have tails because really . . . he would be the type to pull them.
10. Yeah, she looks furious at him, but watch when she turns her back. Most of the time she's smiling . . . she just has to look really mad so he doesn't try it again.

No tails?

I love the perspective, esp about the "food". :D

I have trouble with the last one, trying really hard not to laugh when my son is being naughty.

Hah! I cracked up at #8! That's hilarious! And so true about #10. You know, a lot of things adults typically find unacceptable behavior in kids are really great traits for them to have as an adult. There are those things that one has to say "no" to, but kids don't realize we adults are jumping up and down inside and going, "Yay! Wow! How cool is that?! She's growing up! She's becoming her own person!"

Melanie:
They're mutts from the pound who were "thought" to be cockers (so their tails had been docked by the time we got them).

Cheryl:
Since his vocabulary is pretty high-level and his imagination fierce, some of his stories and things . . . I just have to laugh (like his excuses for various messes). But I try not to let him see me.

Spy:
Precisely! I think, "No one is going to outsmart this kid" someday.
