Mommy had a little convo with Rupert the other day:
Mommy: Rupert! Ruuuuupeeeeeeeerrrrrrrt! Where's my Roop-a-Doop-a-Ding-Dong?
Rupert: Mommy! You are embarrassing. Now you have to call me by my Special Name before I'll look at you.
Where's my Big Handsome Gray Man?
Rupert: Here I am, Mommy!
Mommy: And how are you today, sir?
Rupert: I'm great, Mommy, 'specially now that you're here, paying attention to me.
Mommy: Well, enjoy it while it lasts--I have a lot of overtime coming up in the next ten days. I won't be home much.
Rupert: What!?! NO!!
You'll be home when it's dark though, right? We can still cuddle every night in bed, right? I need my radar dish ears rubbed! Your hand needs bunny-kicking and The Bitey! I have a schedule to maintain! How can you do this!?!
Mommy: Keep your fur shirt on buddy, I'm not working any grave shifts, thank Cod. We'll snuggle together and read books in bed just like always.
Anything for the Handsomest Gray Boy in the House!
Rupert: (with an adorable squint) I love you Mommy.
Mommy: I love you too, Big Boy.
