Quick Annie story
Annie and Jesse went to a street fair yesterday. Jesse won a stuffed Winnie the Pooh bear dressed in safari garb.
All evening long, he referred to this bear as his "puppy." It was "My puppy this..." and "My puppy that..." Finally, as bedtime drew near, 2 yo Annie, hands on hips, told him in a voice full of authority; "It's a BEAR. Not a puppy."
Well of course Jesse threw a fit and flung himself dramatically across the bed, sulking and carrying on. A tantrum ensued. At last, Annie came into the room and with a voice barely concealing her disdain said: "It's a puppy, alright? Now go to bed."
Ah, I look forward to the day my Banana becomes the wife and mother she is so destined to be.
