I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. The day has finally come. TOY TIME!
Me: It’s not exactly today.
Stella: But you said. No fair!
Me: I said I was shopping for toys.
Tiger: It has been so long.
Wiggles: Too long. Too long.
Miss Sweetie: Our chew sticks are so worn out. Why? Oh, why has it been so long?
Me: I save up nickels and dimes to get you all new toys.
Doodlebug: Nickels and dimes. Who are they?
Miss Sweetie: They are friends of Lady Human.
Tiger: Why are they allowed to hold up our toys?
Me: Because the company won’t ship without them.
Stella: Can I see? Can I see?
Me: We’re going to do this the same way as last year. I’ll pick strong, safe chew sticks and you will all get a chance to pick.
Stella: But me first, right?
Me: Remind me why?
Stella: Awww. Do I have to say it?
Me: You want the first pick, don’t you?
Stella: Yes. Okay. Because I am the oldest.
Me: Was that so hard?
Stella: I feel older just for saying it.
