A big thank you to all of you who have let it be known that your child thinks he/she is also an animal of some sort. It’s always a relief to know that I’m not alone in my crazy.
And yes, Jensen still thinks he’s a dog. We’re all just holding on and waiting for this particular phase to pass.
Jensen has made friends with all the dogs in the neighborhood. But no so much with their owners. For he will exit the house and begin howling. And all leashed dogs within hearing range pull free from their owners to come and bid him hello. And then lick my boy. With tongues that have also licked their own…well, you know.
I stand calmly by with disinfectant.
If no dogs are present, Jensen will instead head to the backyard and howl over the fence. Causing all the neighboring fenced dogs to join in the howling festival.
We’re popular here in the neighborhood.

She in turn has adopted her sister’s love of loud music.
I’m composing a sign of my own to post on my door.
Enter at your own risk. Nervous breakdown in progress.
So, what’s your sign?
