Classic: Kid wants a pet, mom doesn't

The kids' longing for a pet is like nits: the minute you start to relax they pop up again.

So this morning I performed the classicical play: 'Kid wants a pet, but mom doesn't'. My co-star was my son Ot (10), who can be summed up by the slogan of a Malibu Rum commercial. He's 'seriously easy going'.

'Mom, can I have a pet?' he opened with the first line.
'No, mommy thinks pets are stupid. When you're grown-up you can buy one yourself!' I spit out, 'cause I was going with an anger theme.

Instead of appreciating this good news Ot, who obviously knows himself well, whined: 'But then I'll still be living at home!'


  1. In our house, it's mommy and kids want another pet but daddy doesn't! It's probably good he's around or I'd have about 100 pets! Have a great weekend!

  2. I pondering on whether to get my wee man a rabbit but pets are such a tie aren't they??
