Mommy says it is almost time to go back to school! How can that be?
This morning she said I had to go with her and my sisters to shop for some back-to-school clothes. I told her that I was already smart enough, and sure didn’t need to go to school any more.
I tried telling her it would be a waste of time to get new clothes I wouldn’t need, but Mommy just mumbled something about, “not everyone being the brightest crayon in the box, even if they think they are.”
She made me go with them anyway, and get these new pants.
Joy was sick, and couldn’t go with us. She whined and whined about staying home. I would have traded places with her in a minute if I could have! I thought about pretending I was sick, too, but Mommy is such a suspicious person, I didn’t bother.
Joy was even crankier when we came home, and she saw the new dresses the girls got. Mommy said she would take Joy for a new dress as soon as she was feeling better so that cheered her up a little.
