And this is what you hear...
"Oh [your name here]! I would love to go out and play with you, but its just too cold (hot, rainy, snowy, windy, insert any weather condition). And besides, momma (PL, ma ape, jie jie, mom) is sooo tired (grouchy, busy)."
At which point, you say, "OK, but can we do something inside at least like visit my bloggy friends or play a game, huh?"
Then the peoples will likely use their special lovey name for you. "Oh [insert lovey name here] you know momma loves you, but she really needs to just spend some quiet time reading (watching TV, napping, staring at the wall)." Or sometimes there's the old, "I just really need to do some housework (make some phone calls, write my memiors)." [as if there is something more important than me].
I don't know about you, but when momma needs extra smoochies or somebody to run errands with or anything, I don't whine and complain, I'm there for her. Plus, I always greet her when she comes home from that work place even if I was really busy eating or biting pee-wee or meditating.
I think I need a support group.
In the meantime, I have my hedgehog. Sigh.Mango Man! Oh yeah!
