Lola: Mommybeast, can I ask you a question?
Me: Well, considering your face is two inches from mine….I guess you can.
Lola: Did I brush my teeth?
Me: Jeez, I should start napping in the bed, this couch puts me at puppy breath level. No, you did not brush your teeth.
Lola: Don’t you think you should get on that?
Me: I will, later today.
Lola: When later? Didn’t you hear the vet? She said the only reason she doesn’t have to gas me to clean my teeth is because I brush my teeth so well.
Me: Lola, I will do it later! I am tired and still sick.
Lola: Moms can’t get sick.
Me: Oh really?!?! Well, then I guess I’m not your mom.
Lola: Well, now that we established that, don’t you think my real Mommybeast would want you to brush my teeth already?
Me: What the hell do you mean your real Mommybeast?!? I AM your mom.
Lola: And a terrible one at that. Dereliction of duties, sleeping on the job, neglect of the wonderful puppy…the list goes on and on.
Me: Lola, just let me nap.
Lola: Meemaw said you did this to her when you were little. So suck it up! Now, I’m going to go get dressed and when I get back, I expect my teeth brushing to commence.
Me: What do you mean you’re getting dressed?!
Lola: Well who the hell else will play Captain Puppy Pants in the upcoming musical production if I don’t get dressed?
Where the hell did I go wrong in life?!?!
