I have always been an animal lover, and I have always had pets.
But for the last couple years, we have been dogless.
As the number of children in this house has increased, the number of animals has decreased.
I mean, I think the church down the road held this event a few months ago especially for me and my children…
Anyway, we are down to a tortoise.
His name is Snuffy, and he belongs to Number 2.
He lives up in Number 1 and Number 2’s room.
He may be the easiest pet in the world to take care of.
You don’t need to walk him.
Or vacuum up his fur.
Or housebreak him.
All you need to do is feed him lettuce.
Which Number 2 can hardly ever remember to do.
So the other day my husband was talking with Number 1, 2, and 3.
And somehow they ended up discussing what they would do if they were to receive one million dollars.
Number 1 said, “I’d use it to fix up the outside of our house.”
Wow, nothing for himself.
He must really be embarrassed by the exterior of our home.
Number 3 said, “I’d take our family to Hawaii.”
Now we’re talking, Number 3.
And here is what Number 2 said:
“If I got one million dollars, I’d buy a monkey. …
You know, not a big one, but a small one.
Then I would always have a best friend.”
I’ve got enough wild animals flinging their own poo in this house as it is.
But I do think it may be time to sign Number 2 up for some social clubs at school…
