4 SHORT STORIES
MMMMMM ... CHEETO's
The cats have been gone since our house was on the market so they recently came home after taking the house OFF the market and Abby forgot just how fun it was to play with them. She had been playing with Leon for a while and he got tired and laid down with his arms out like a Spinx and Abby said, "look mom, he looks like a cheeto."
"A what?" I said
"His arms are out so he looks like he's laying like a cheeto!"
"Ya mean a cheetah??"
"Yeah, that's what I mean."
Abby is a great eater, she eats all sorts of veggies, she'll even eat spinach salads and actually LIKES them.
One day I had cut up some spinach to put on some tacos for dinner and Abby passed the dinner table and grabbed a piece of spinach. Thinking it was salad, she gave me a disgusted look and said, "Mom, you forgot to put the grease on this green stuff."
Jason and Abby were playing pretend in the living room. Abby was being coy, turning her head to the side, looking at Jason and batting her eyes with a big smile on her face. Jason asked her what she was doing and Abby responded, "I'm getting ready to marry you Daddy"
Abby has been going to preschool for a few months now and absolutely loves it. She comes home all he time with stories of what she did and all her friends. However one friend, in particular, is continually talked about and his name is Jacob. One night at dinner Abby was talking about Jacob and this is what she had to say.
"Today me an Jacob were playing in the gym and we were on the bikes. Jacob is really fast on the bikes and I'm not really fast. Jacob would go really fast and then I would go 'Jacob ... Jacob ... come back' (said in a whiny voice) and he would come back and get me." She's only 3 and she already knows how to get her way with boys, SCARY!
