Teen Dog

Thursday night, before she sat me on the bed for a talk, I watched Mom pack her bag. She told me to pay close attention because she wanted to explain something to me. She said, “Lexi, I blah, blah blah.” And, “So I will be back blah, blah, blah.” Then she picked up her bag and left without me!

Dad got back home from band practice hours later a short time later. I thought sure he would bring Mom back home with him, and I looked everywhere without success. Daddy tried to explain to me what I think Mom had already explained, but I was too distressed to listen well.

Friday came and went and no Mom. Saturday morning, I was ready to listen.

So tell me again when Mom will be home...
So tell me again when Mom will be home…

“Tonight,” he said. “She will be home for your birthday tonight, Little One.”
After feeding me supper, Dad left again with his big red saxophone case and I started watching out the front door for my Mom. It took a very long time, but I finally saw the car coming up the driveway. I was so, so happy and I kissed her all over. Mom took me into the kitchen and what did she bring me home for my birthday? Yes! Mickey D’s. We sat down at the table together and I shared halfies of my cheeseburger, fries and caramel ice cream sundae.

  1. Woopee! Thirteen. It’s really no big deal being a teenager. I’m older than Shoko so I’m expected to know better. I will be 14 on the 10th. Show your mom just because you’re older doesn’t mean you can’t get into mischief. MOL

    Kitty Kisses,

    1. Thanks, Chris. I know Mom and I celebrated last night on my birthday, but I was really hoping for a Mickey D’s kind of breakfast today. I held out as long as I could, then I got too hungry around noon. *sigh*


  3. I’m so glad she was back for your birthday… that’s true love, right? Happy Birthday to you, have a super wonderful day together with your momma… and a Happy Mothers Day too to your bestest mom!
