Talk To The Animals

The Mayor and The Rooster were already asleep when K found Rooster's favorite stuffed duck on our bed.


He picked it up and took it to her room.

I noticed that he held the duck close to his face and seemed to be muttering to it.

I must have been looking at him oddly when he returned because he explained himself.

"I talk to their animals," he said.

"I whisper to them."  

"I tell them it's their responsibility to keep the children safe." 

"I mean, they're right there, sleeping beside them."

I love that man.

That is hilarious.

My husband would never do that, but he did tell our toddler the other day that clearly, his guardian angel was working overtime.

What a dear sentiment!

My *special* daughter, Vivian, loves her stuffed animals. She has at least five dogs, all different shapes, sizes and colors, and all named "Sam." One of them is a life-sized dalmatian. She carried that Sam to school with her one day. My son happened to drive by her school on his way to drop off a friend, and he told me, "Mom, I saw Vivian walking around the track today. I could tell it was Vivian because she was carrying that huge black and white dog."

I definitely should whisper to Vivian's animals to take care of her since they accompany her everywhere. Tell K thanks for the idea.

Oh, you've got your own Doctor Doolittle, and he's not afraid to own up to it. Lucky dog, you.

Angela said...

That melted my heart, it's now just a gooey mess. You're one lucky woman.

Joie said...

Great man. I do the same thing. I hug Patrick's piggy as if it is my sweet boy. I kiss it and return it to him, a surrogate mom in the night.
