“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?”
