Oh great, Bear just figured out how to untie shoe laces.
Betsy to the Rescue
Betsy: Foster Mom, the water dish is almost half empty and the cats have decided to use it as a toy box. I prefer a full, clean water dish for my drinks
Me: Ah, let me fix that
Bear: Toys? In the water dish? Let me see!!! (sticks his head and chest over the water dish as I am picking it up)
Me: Bear! Move! You are going to make me spill the water
Bear: But Toys!!!
Betsy: Fresh water please
Me: Ok, you deal with Bear
Betsy: Bear! Move!
Bear: (Moving away from the dish) Sheesh, you don’t have to be a grump!
Me: Well that was easy…
Foster Mom Hazard Pay
Me: Bear did you notice I am cleaning the kitchen
Bear: uh no
Me: Didn’t you wonder why I was walking back and forth in the same area?
Bear: Nope, it made it easy for me to find a place to lay down
Me: What happens when I step on you because you are in the middle of my path?
Bear: Foster Mom, you would never step on me
Me: Sigh. Ok, who exactly do you think is going to foster you when I end up in the hospital because I “didn’t” step on you?
Bear: Foster Mom, you’re funny (stretches out on his back)
Me: I want puppy kisses
Bear: I don’t give puppy kisses
Me: I’ve noticed, the whole point of a cute, fuzzy puppy is kisses!
Bear: Nu-uh, besides, I give Bear Kisses, not puppy kisses
Me: Oh? What exactly is a Bear Kiss?
Bear: (Rubbing my chin with his nose and pushing really hard) See, Bear Kisses!
Me: Awwww, do it again!
Me: (Snuggling Bear)
Bear: Foster Mom, I want down
Me: Are you sure? You just got up here.
Bear: Yes I want to get down.
Me: ok (sets Bear on floor)
Bear: (looks around) Uh Foster Mom?
Bear: Can I get in your lap?
Me You were just in my lap and you wanted down.
Bear: I was? Are you sure? Can we snuggle???
