Trifextra: Good Boy?

“Good boy” she always says when Skippy goes potty outside.

And then she pats his head.

He even gets a doggie cookie sometimes when he comes in.

So why am I in timeout?

 

Time out

  3. Oh, my sons thought they were in heaven when we were camping and they got to go in the woods. I had to actually tell them it wasn’t appropriate to that at home because I knew exactly what they were thinking.

  4. When my son was three, he visited my in-laws’ farm for a week. Imagine my horror when he came home and dropped trou in the middle of a pumpkin patch … just like Grandpa had him do on the farm. (He didn’t get a pat on his head, either).

    Cute, clever and funny tale!

    P.S. Thanks for the flashback. I can laugh about it now. 🙂

  5. Aw, poor thing! He just wanted a treat, Mom!
