The little guy and our seventy-five pound puppy, Hazel, were lying on the floor spooning ever so sweetly (they missed each other during our short trip out of town). I stood and admired them for a moment or two before I raised my foot and stepped over them. You see, they have this goofy habit of always
being in the pathway. And of course I have this habit of always
needing to be right on the other side of them. Anyway, I raised my foot, stepped over them, had my foot just about to have a clean landing on the far side of them...and of course they both moved! And of course I stepped on both of them. I've got mad skills in that way.
Little guy: "Mom, you stepped on us!"
Me: "I know...sorry. I thought you'd both just be still."
Little guy: "Mom, you know
neither of us are good at that
The kid's got a point. So, did I learn a lesson about expecting them to stay still? Likely not. Did they learn a lesson about staying still when someone is stepping over them? Decidedly not.
Sigh...and we all wait till the next time I step
over on them.
Thanks for "liking" my blog posts!!
