Tales From the Frontlines

So Little Dog has been taken out of daycare and is now staying home during the day with a nanny. For purposes of anonymity we'll call her the NannyElite or NE for short. We share her services with another family to share the expense and to keep Ansel social, but that's a whole different story.

One of my favorite things about having a nanny in our home is that she has become a part of our family. She and I can talk about the kids, have developed a friendship (I claim I'm old enough to be her unwed teenage mother, she likes to say I'm like her older sister) and she tells me stories about what cute or funny things the kids do during the day.
This is one of those stories:

Yesterday I was running late for work and I asked NE if I could leave Big Dog home too. She agreed and I ran off to work. Big Dog loves NE and tends to have a great time when he stays home with her.
While Little Dog and Big Dog were having lunch, they could see their dad outside, working on the foundation.
Big Dog started waving and yelling "Hi Poppa! I love you!"
Little Dog watched this, and decided to join in. "Hi Poppa! Where da cookies?"
Guess he has different priorities.

Ansel understands the important things in life at such a young age. He'll be a philosopher someday or The Next Food Network Star.
