Dress rehearsal

PHOTO PROMPT © Sandra Crook

“After I dress can Lucy and I have ice-cream for breakfast”, 3 year old Clara demands. Lucy, her partner-in-crime wags her tail on cue.

“No”, I say firmly immune to their charm.

“Why isn’t Lucy wearing a dress?”

“Because dogs don’t wear clothes”

“Why don’t dogs wear clothes?”

“Because they have fur and hair and all that”

“I have hair too. See mommy. ”

“Clara, humans are expected to wear clothes.  Put this on”, I hold out her dress.

“Why are we expected to wear clothes mommy?”

Lucy and Clara look expectantly at me eyes wide. Do they rehearse this?

“Chocolate or Vanilla?”
