Puppy in Pink on weheartit
Nika and Shawnie are twins....age 5?
Me: Shawnie, what do you want for Christmas?
Me: Everything??? Tell me one thing you want the most.
Shawnie: I can't, because I want EVERYTHING!
Me: Do you want a Barbie?
Shawnie: NO! I want everything, but not a Barbie!
The conversation with Shawnie is a lead into the more important conversation with Nika, because I have drawn her name for Christmas and need to find out what she wants.
Me: Nika, what do you want for Christmas?
Nika: A puppy!!!!!!
Me: ...........................a puppy? ......................what else do you want?
Nika: Ummm, probably gum.
Dad gave me some good advice as I retold this story to him. It's probably better if I don't tell Nika's parents that she wants me to buy her a puppy. They will be just as surprised as Nika when she opens up her gift. I wonder if they will become suspicious when the box has air holes and wiggles around on the floor?
Perhaps I better stick to the original plan and find her something pink (and not living)...with a side of gum.
