It's summer vacation, and the, "Mom, I'm bored," comment has already surfaced.
When Bubba said it, I said, "Find something to do!"
He did. It involved a remote-control truck and a very large German Shepherd.
I walked into the kitchen and nearly tripped over a miniature monster truck with huge rubber wheels. It was in pursuit of a four-legged canine named Schultz. Schultz was clearly not happy about having his afternoon nap disturbed. He went to all of his favorite spots, but was chased of by the truck.
Bubba thought that was great fun. Until Schultz decided to do something about it. When that motorized vehicle approached the furry beast and bumped into his nose, Schultz took action. He jumped up, grabbed that thing in his enormous mouth, and ran off.
Fortunately, Schultz was very gentle, so the truck wasn't damaged, but that was the end of Bubba's little game!
Before I go, I would like to thank Diana Jenkins for featuring my new book, Ten Zany Birds, on her blog. It was a wonderful, unexpected surprise!
(I also want to say, that I'm sorry I've been sporadic about posting. Between vacations, the kids being home, and all the stuff I'm trying to do, it's been really rough for me to be online to blog. Hopefully things will settle down in a while, and I'll be more regular.)
